Forgotten man Origi snatches dramatic derby win for Liverpool

Forgotten man Origi snatches dramatic derby win for Liverpool

It was a harsh way to end the game for Pickford, who made at least one fantastic save in the first half, but it sparked wild scenes with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp charging into the centre-circle to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who himself had produced a couple of brilliant saves to keep another clean sheet.

Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher has revealed his opinion on the misfiring Liverpool attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

- Divock Origi has scored in all three of his home league appearances against Everton for Liverpool - scoring more goals against the Toffees than any other side in the competition. And ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that the FIFA World Cup in the summer is showing its effects out in the front three. "I try to play my game and enjoy it".

It was cleared only as far as Virgil van Dijk, who sliced a looping shot that appeared to be heading over goal.

Everton's goalkeeper was devastated but insisted he would react positively.

Origi stunned Anfield and sent the home supporters into raptures when he took advantage of Jordan Pickford's freakish error to head in deep into stoppage time.

Pickford apologised to Everton supporters after the defeat and revealed what he was trying to do when asked about his freakish mistake which led to Origi's victor. Both teams delivered an unbelievable fight. He then raced off his line to deny Theo Walcott as Everton attempted to capitalise on their first-half dominance. Fabinho also returns to the starting lineup, while Xherdan Shaqiri will start on the right flank.

But it was all forgotten as a result of his costly error of judgement.

Everton manager Marco Silva could not hide his frustration with the circumstances of the defeat.

But Silva, who described Liverpool as "lucky, lucky, lucky", rejected Klopp's claim about the apology.

Gomes is starting to make his influence felt in Everton's team now he is fully fit after injury and the Portugal global - on loan from Barcelona - was the standout player for the visitors with his vision and technique in midfield. Andre Gomes was outstanding at the heart of midfield, and he nearly scored in the first half before seeing Alisson save his goal-bound header.

"It's also a dream for the city and for the fans". I just want to say sorry to the Everton fans.

In defence of Allardyce, the former England manager was tasked with keeping Everton up and he did just that, but there was precious little flair or entertainment on offer at Goodison Park last season.
