What a crazy night! 96th minute dramatic goal from Origi send Klopp racing into the pitch

Liverpool’s Divock Origi was gifted a 96th-minute goal in a terrible Jordan Pickford error giving the Reds victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield.

Liverpool pressed hard late in the game after failing to break Everton defence but it was 96th-minute goal from the late substitute Divock Origi that separated both sides. He nodded into an empty goal to secure a win and consolidates Liverpool’s second place, two points behind defending champions Manchester City.

It was Origi’s third goal against Everton – his best record against any side for Liverpool. This was his first Premier League appearance since August 2017.

The goal sent his manager Jurgen Klopp sprinting onto the pitch to hug goalkeeper Alisson and the fans into raptures, but was cruel on Everton, who had at times played the more adventurous football in a lively encounter.
