Jurgen Klopp Handed Punishment Over Derby Pitch Invasion

Wednesday, 05 Dec, 2018

A freak injury-time goal from Liverpool substitute Divock Origi settled the Merseyside derby and kept Jurgen Klopp's unbeaten team hard on the heels of Premier League pacesetters Manchester City on Sunday.

The German ran on to the pitch in wild celebration of Divock Origi's 96th-minute victor at Anfield and later apologised to his Everton counterpart Marco Silva.

Origi has now scored three goals in the Merseyside derby and Klopp said he has rarely viewed scenes like his dramatic late victor.

BBC pundit Danny Mills had suggested in the aftermath of the game that Klopp "should have been arrested" and that if he had been on the pitch he would have given him a "forearm smash".

"It was a fantastic feeling to lead the boys out in such a big game and to get the win in the dying seconds is something sweet and special". When Lookman has the ball at his feet you get the feeling anything can happen, and I hope we keep hold onto him and see him flourish. I did immediately afterwards to Marco Silva; I didn't want to be disrespectful but I couldn't stop myself. All of your colleagues have asked me about the situation but to be honest with you I didn't see it. "I think we've shown with PSG at home and then Chelsea away and now Everton - three times this season - that something that we're doing is staying in games and then producing in the last minutes". "It went so quick when the ball the came and I thought: 'If I am going to touch it, the defender might come and press me and if I hit it one-touch, it's just hope for the best'".

Following the draw against Palace he criticized the hunger of his players and he has stood by those comments. But United's slow starts have continued to hamper them this season as they are well off the pace in the PL.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mane is fit to start, after initially being a doubt due to illness. "We were not anxious about playing at home". The France star crossed low for Cavani, whose attempt was saved by Alisson, but Neymar converted the rebound.

Luckily, the NYPD has managed to retrieve the trinket and are now looking for the couple to give it back. But a happy ending was coming for what the department called its "almost engaged" couple.


"Very intense game and obviously a much nicer finish for us".

"We have to be ready, there's nothing negative in winning late against Everton".

"The more important things happened during the 95 minutes". They are a bottom six team really who did great last season. "It's nothing too serious we don't think", said Dyche.

'With Robbo it's not that serious, but like with Sadio we need to have a look'.
