Jurgen Klopp has plenty to smile about during Liverpool’s emphatic 4-0 victory over local rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby.
The German coach watched on as Divock Origi, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho all scored past Joel Robles in front of a euphoric 43,000-strong crowd at Anfield.
Unfortunately, Lucas couldn’t get his name on the scoresheet. The Brazilian defensive midfielder had a crack at goal from range in stoppage time but it rolled harmlessly wide - much to Klopp’s amusement.

The camera cut to the Liverpool manager, who was seen in fits of laughter with the rest of his coaching staff.
Klopp’s reaction might have been different, we suspect, had Liverpool not been 4-0 up and cruising at the time!
