Jonas Olsson: I'd have 'knocked Klopp down' for Merseyside celebration


Klopp reacted to Divock Origi's stoppage-time victor against Everton at Anfield by running to the centre circle and celebrating with Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were excellent on Sunday and while Liverpool rode their luck at times, their defence has improved so much in the last 12 months and it means they are getting a chance to win games in the final stages.

Marco Silva believes his Liverpool counterpart should not have been punished.

On co-commentary for Sky Sports, Carragher remarked that Firmino, signed for £29m in 2015 under Brendan Rodgers, has looked like a new signing adapting to the Premier League during the first half.

"We talked about the match, we analysed the match as well but now we are preparing for the next game". It was unbelievably intense and hard for both teams.

The Bulldogs dropped from No. 4 to No. 5 after squandering a 14-point lead to top-ranked Alabama in the SEC Championship. According to Westgate LV Superbook, the Bulldogs would be favored over both Oklahoma and Ohio State on a neutral field.

Marco Silva says he is proud of his players' performance in today's cruel derby defeat and admits that Everton did not deserve to lose what was a very even match. I can't imagine the disappointment of Everton. Keeping a clean sheet gives us the foundation to go and do these things.

"If I could describe it [how he feels] then I would have control over it".

" Today because of the intensity, I can not hide my emotions, I did it. I'm not sure what the FA has to do in a situation like this but I will have to wait". I didn't want to run to Ali (goalkeeper Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously.

So long as those results keep coming and the Reds stay in the conversation at the summit - bobbles on the crossbar, whatever - you feel their fans won't mind a jot. "But I know, as a defender, that you can play 90 minutes pretty well and then, in one moment, you can be the worst player they have ever seen play". The German will, of course, take any punishment that comes his way knowing that his legendary status at Anfield has only been further bolstered. They are just an outstanding side and it was a hard game today.
