Klopp charged for derby celebrations

Jurgen Klopp says he apologised to Marco Silva for running on the Anfield pitch to celebrate Divock Origi's last-gasp Merseyside derby victor.

Klopp reacted to Divock Origi's stoppage-time victor against Everton at Anfield by running to the centre circle and celebrating with Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Divock Origi was the unlikely hero at Anfield as he scored from inches out in the 96th minute to ensure the gap between Liverpool and Premier League leaders Manchester City remains at two points.

"Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva when we spoke to each other", said Klopp. I thought we were really unlucky not to get a point and could even have won it, if only for a goal line clearance and a freakish goal.

"I was feeling good, I kept in shape so in the end, I could do that and it turned out well".

"First of all, I have to apologise for my run", Klopp said.

"I'm always thinking around that nine or 10 mark when you really get that grounded fitness and you get your eye in and get used to what's going on again in the Premier League".

Even though the game will be remembered for the error from Jordan Pickford that allowed Divok Origi to win the game, it wasn't the only goalkeeper interaction that played a pivotal role in the outcome of the contest. We knew how strong they were but today they were outstandingly strong and hard with the way they played. If there was no rule against it, we as managers would constantly celebrate on the pitch. The 20-year-old added that the last-gasp win over Everton has given the Reds much-needed momentum heading into a busy month of footballing action. It's football. I can not tell you if it was disrespectful because I didn't see it. "I think we deserved the three points". "It's nothing too serious we don't think", said Dyche.

"The more important things happened during the 95 minutes".

"Today he is not ready but we will see later".

"With Robbo, it is not as serious as with Sadio, but we need to have a look".
