Burnley's Steven Defour 'touch and go' for visit of Liverpool

Burnley's Steven Defour 'touch and go' for visit of Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has said he apologised to Everton boss Marco Silva for excessively celebrating Liverpool's stoppage time victor in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford had kept a Virgil van Dijk mis-kick in play allowing Divock Origi to head in the last minute victor.

Too many people are looking to be offended in the modern world and this is another example of a situation that doesn't really need to be punished being highlighted by people who go out of their way to declare how upset they are. However, they are now focusing on survival and Sean Dyche is an experienced manager who will be confident of getting them out of the rot.

Silva: Blues didn't deserve cruel finish

Everton looked to be on course to deny Liverpool the victory they needed to close the gap on Manchester City at the top of the table but Origi's first Liverpool goal since May 2017 snatched all three points.

He apologise immediately after the game and news of an FA charge, as expected arrived yesterday. "There are a lot of emotions in those moments", he said. Virg [van Dijk], whatever it was in the moment it left the foot, I thought it's over.

"If we scored that goal and had been so lucky I might have done the same. It happened, a fine, I'll pay it, no problem".

"If you ask me, I think he shouldn't (have been fined) but the FA has to decide what the rules are". But then I turned round to their goal and saw the ball bounce on the crossbar.

The 25-year-old made a slow start to his career at Anfield, but has now played the last six Premier League games for the Merseyside club.

"It's one that all the players will remember for a long time and hopefully the fans will as well because we've dominated the fixture for so long and we've extended it."

"We have to be ready, there's nothing negative in winning late against Everton". It was a proper fight and from our point of view, a Liverpool win.
