Sunday's Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton will live long in the memory for one reason and one reason only.

Heading into injury time at 0-0 the game seemed destined to end as a draw. Liverpool were threatening, but Everton were holding strong at the back.

But then something quite incredible happened.

In the 95th minute, Virgil van Dijk attempted an audacious volley from outside the box that soared into the air and looked completely harmless.

It was heading straight for Jordan Pickford's goal, though, so the Englishman needed to push the ball over the bar for a corner.

Instead, Everton's goalkeeper palmed the ball onto the woodwork and it fell straight to Divock Origi, who had the simplest of headers to win the game.

Cue wild scenes at Anfield as Liverpool players all swarmed Origi and Jurgen Klopp ran onto the pitch to hug his own goalkeeper, Alisson.

There was a sense of confusion around the ground, too, as no one really knew what had just happened, but Liverpool fans didn't care one bit.

Cameras were mostly focused on Klopp as the German risked punishment by sprinting onto the pitch, but now hilarious footage has emerged of the reaction of Liverpool's bench.

Mohamed Salah, Alberto Moreno, Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner can all be seen in the video and they produced very different celebrations.

Salah and Moreno hugged each other, Milner looked calm and composed, while Shaqiri threw his coat on the floor and just shouted at the top of his lungs. Check it out.

Now that's passion. Klopp can also be seen in the video hugging his coaches, but Shaqiri's reaction to Origi's winner was by far the best part.
