Klopp fined for wild celebrations after Liverpool victor

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has accepted his Football Association misconduct charge for running on the pitch after conceding it was a mistake.

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.

During the 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday, Firmino, who has scored just two goals in his last 15 games for Liverpool, was dispossessed more times than any other teammate (2).

In fact, I'd go as far as to say Everton are the most impressive team we have seen at Anfield this season and I would include Manchester City in the list, after Pep Guardiola's side came with a very cautious approach.

"It was a fantastic feeling to lead the boys out in such a big game and to get the win in the dying seconds is something sweet and special". The whole season is still there, we feel in a good moment.

"First of all, I have to apologise for my run", Klopp said. "I was aware that I needed to have the patience to wait for my moment, but I'm happy at Liverpool - there's no reason for me to leave".

"It was just instinct, I just tried to be sharp.I believed in myself, it wasn't easy and in football those moments keeps you stronger". So why should we struggle to realise Burnley starts with 0-0 again and we have to fight another 95 minutes?

Following the clash, the Dutchman admitted via ESPN: "When I hit it, I thought, 'Never again!' and looked back to the defence".

"I think that's disrespectful to my players if I tell them that. It's OK, he's walking around now in flip-flops but we don't play in flip-flops", said the Reds boss. We have to be ready, that was clear, 38 times in the league and as much and often as possible in all other competitions.

If we are to improve quickly, we need to replace Gueye with the likes of Loftus cheek to play alongside Gomez, if we can secure his signature.
