Jurgen Klopp's eight words about Divock Origi to the camera after late Everton winner

How best to describe the ending to Sunday's Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton.

In the 95th minute, with the deadlock yet to be broken, Trent Alexander-Arnold floated one last cross into Everton's box in the hope that a winning goal would come of it.

But when the ball fell to Virgil van Dijk 25 yards out and the Dutchman sent a volley straight up in the air, it seemed the moment was gone.

And yet, it wasn't.

Jordan Pickford made an absolute mess of trying to tip the ball over the bar and instead palmed it onto the woodwork to fall right in front of his goal. Divock Origi was on hand to head home.

Anfield erupted, but the truth is no one really knew what had just happened. Van Dijk's shot looked completely harmless and Pickford could have just left it.

But in a state of confusion the England goalkeeper flapped and ended up handing all three points to Liverpool, costing his side a hard-earned draw.

Pickford's reaction after the final whistle said it all as he put his hands up to Everton's away fans and said sorry. It was a terrible, terrible goalkeeping error.

In the meantime, Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool players were in the middle of the pitch celebrating their 11th Premier League win of the season.

They remain second in the table behind Manchester City but only two points behind the reigning champions.

All eyes and cameras were on Klopp at full-time after the German had sprinted onto the pitch to hug Alisson when Origi scored his dramatic late winner.

Klopp did his usual thing of embracing each of his players and now footage has emerged of him speaking directly to Sky Sports cameras about Origi.

In the video below, Klopp turns around and says: "Divock Origi scored the goal! Divock Origi scored," in an apparent attempt to get the cameras to focus on his goalscorer instead.

Clearly Klopp felt Origi deserved to be in the spotlight, not him, so he urged the cameraman to look elsewhere before pushing the camera away.
