Klopp charged over celebrations after Liverpool's derby win

I didn't want to run - I couldn't stop.

Klopp said immediately after the match that he regretted his actions and had apologized to Everton manager Marco Silva.

"The more important things happened during the 95 minutes". But I told him he has done many awesome things.

"We are here to build something, to prepare our club and players to compete in every match, every time against these sides and not just on one day where you can have one good day".

But how the 100th Anfield league derby still stood goalless at that stage was a surprise with the first half, especially, producing multiple chances for both teams.

However, significant investment and a change in playing style introduced by Silva have seen the Toffees move up to sixth in the table, their best league position for some time, and that has caught Klopp's attention. All of your colleagues have asked me about the situation but to be honest with you I didn't see it.

"I cannot say it was disrespectful because I didn't see, when I see that moment maybe I can speak more about that situation. Wednesday - Sunday will be enough to have a almost full squad then, but I don't know exactly how the situation will be tomorrow for training".

"He did really well until that moment and it is something no-one expected".

Origi's dramatic 96th-minute header against Everton on Sunday was his first Liverpool goal since May 2017 and came in only his second substitute's appearance of the season.

Divock Origi has said it was an "unbelievable feeling" to be the match victor of today's Merseyside derby.

Jurgen Klopp's side kept pace with leaders manchester City and remain only two points behind them. At the end it was a little bit less clear, but that's normal. 'I will say sorry to the Everton fans again, because I know how much it means to them, ' he said.

"We held our own so we take positives from it, freak goals happen sometimes and it's always the case as a goalkeeper if you make a mistake, you make an error, it's always going to bite you". I think it's hit the bar twice, I've tried to flick it over, it's spinned back and as I've went to flick it over I think my hand's hit the bar as I've touched the ball. We have to play without Hendo and that's how it is.

"It will not be the most easy game in the world but no-one expects that in a derby and we shouldn't do that this time so we will not".
