Jurgen Klopp delighted with Liverpool but admits Divock Origi injury dampened win over Everton.

Klopp: "We are in a good moment."

Origi, Sakho, Sturridge and Coutinho found the net.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight after the Reds smashed Everton 4-0 at Anfield, but the former Dortmund boss admitted the triumph was dampened by Divock Origi's injury.

Origi broke the deadlock in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night, but he was forced off in the second half after a furious challenge by Ramiro Funes Mori - who was shown a straight red card - before Mamadou Sakho increased the lead just before half-time.

However, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho compounded the Toffees' woes by adding two more goals, and after the clash, Klopp told Sky Sports: "We are in a good moment. That's how it is. We played football, we created chances, we could have scored much more. The goalkeeper had a finger between us and another goal and that of course was good.

"But to be honest, I could sit here and say it was really difficult but second half it wasn't, it is like it is. But, it was really difficult for Everton. Injuries, red card, good opponent. It's not too easy then.

"We have only really good players. There is no player in the squad where I think why is he here? This is a really, really good team but the problem is there are a few other teams in the Premier League that are not too bad too and so you can lose each game.

"We did well and usually after 4-0 I don't know how to keep my smile out of my face but today it is pretty easy [given Divock Origi injury]."

Regarding Origi's injury, the German said: "I would like to say yes [I enjoyed the win] but [the injury] to Divock Origi cost me a little bit of joy.

"Of course, the first half was a derby. Our side's passing was okay but we could have played better. Then we scored the two goals, wonderful goals, and second half the game changed completely with the red card and the injury to Divock, and they had no chance anymore.

"We had a lot of opportunities to score goals, their goalkeeper did a good job and it's 4-0. Usually it's really great, I'd like to say I'm 100 per cent happy but I cannot ignore the situation [with Origi].

"I can't say too much, I didn't see the pictures until now but everyone I met said 'Oh, it was disgusting or awful', or however you want to say it. But it's not broken, it's a twisted ankle ligament, we have to wait now.

"I saw him on crutches here walking around but he had a little smile on his face so we have to see."


Fabregas: Conte what we need.

Shearer: Newcastle Should have got Rafa earlier.
