Jurgen Klopp stormed the Anfield pitch this afternoon after watching his side snatch a late Merseyside Derby winner against Everton in dramatic fashion, after Jordan Pickford dropped an absolute howler.
After a cagey 90 minutes, it looked like the Premier League sides would be forced to share the points after failing to break each other down, but nobody could’ve foreseen the drama awaiting in the 96th minute.

As Virgil van Dijk lumped a hopeful ball back into the penalty area, substitute and forgotten man Divock Origi refused to give up on a hopeless cause, and when Pickford somehow failed to tip it over the bar, the Belgian gleefully knocked it home and sparked an all-time classic celebration from Klopp:
"Look at Jurgen Klopp!" 😂
"This place has gone berserk!" 😱

Having been out on-loan at Wolfsburg, it looked like Origi’s career at Liverpool was all but over but it looks like it may have been revived after an extraordinary final few moments this afternoon.
And as for Klopp, it’s just impossible not to love him – unless you’re name’s Jordan Henderson.
What do you think of the scenes?
