Jurgen Klopp's side kept pace with leaders manchester City and remain only two points behind them.

However, Mainz 05, who Klopp managed for a seven year spell, have now posted a video of how Klopp celebrated a last minute goal while at the club.

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

"I told him how much I respect his work, because it's incredible what he has done with that team".

The midfielder has barely featured for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, making just five appearances in all competitions.

"Derbies are always hard but this was a completely different hard to the last few years".

"This time also I can't say my individual one but my target now is to win something for the club". I didn't want to run, it was not my plan.

"I have to apologise because I didn't want to be disrespectful - but I couldn't stop myself", Klopp said, per BBC Sport. "Not cool, but it happened".

Origi had played just 11 minutes as a substitute this season in the 2-0 Champions League defeat against Red Star Belgrade in Serbia and his long-term prospects look bleak.

His shot bounced off the top of the crossbar with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford scrambling. "Both teams delivered an unbelievable fight". "Our high pressure was outstanding, our counter-pressing was really at [the] highest level".

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

"[We] tried to control the game, which is hard because they controlled the spaces really well".

"As long as all the others are fit, we have solutions for that and that's good".

Somehow, goalkeeper Alisson made an extraordinary reflex block and, after the ball rebounded against Gomes's head and looked destined to trickle over the goalline, it was Liverpool defender Joe Gomez who made a brilliant last-ditch clearance to hack the ball to safety.

"I knew the rest I couldn't control so whatever minutes I got, I just tried to make the most of it and thank God, it turned out well so I am happy".

"December, January, you need to be a little bit lucky with injuries". Virg [van Dijk], whatever it was in the moment it left the foot, I thought it's over.

With the ball looking as if it might hit the cross-bar, the England man pushed the ball upwards and presented Origi with a simple headed finish into an open net. It was a very unthankful job for Pickford.
