Liverpool vs Everton LIVE: Premier League result and final score as Divock Origi goal seals derby win

All the reaction and updates from Anfield in a crucial Merseyside derby for both teams

Follow live reaction as Liverpool kept their Premier League title challenge on track as they overcame a battling and stubborn Everton side at Anfield to leave their Merseyside rivals in the relegation zone.

The Reds had been frustrated by the visitors in a feisty derby until Andy Robertson broke the deadlock midway through the second half, as the full-back met Mohamed Salah’s cross at the back post in front of the Kop.

Substitutes Luis Diaz and Divock Origi then combined to seal the win - with the Belgian striker scoring another derby goal against Everton, in what was an inspired double change from Jurgen Klopp.

The result sees Liverpool close the gap to Manchester City to one point with five matches of the season remaining, while Everton are left in serious danger after Burnley’s win over Wolves earlier in the day saw Frank Lampard’s side drop into the bottom three.

Liverpool 2-0 Everton

90 mins: Richarlison has kicked out at Henderson while the England man was on the floor. He has been booked for it.

The Brazilian did push his studs into the Liverpool captain’s leg, but a yellow card was probably the correct decision.

GOAL! Liverpool 2-0 Everton (Origi, 85)

85 mins: It is 2-0 now though! Origi again against Everton!

How good is Divock Origi’s record against the Toffees?! He has another goal and it’s one he couldn’t miss.

Robertson’s corner reaches Henderson at the back post. He sends it back into the box for Diaz who scissor-kicks it across the penalty area and it bounces kindly for Origi to head home inside the six-yard box.

Game. Set. Match.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

84 mins: Nearly 2-0. Salah breaks and finds the onrushing Thiago who tests Pickford with a deflected effort but the England number one is equal to it.

84 mins: A reminder that, as it stands, Liverpool will reduce the gap to Manchester City at the top of the table to one point.

Everton will remain in the relegation zone, two points below Burnley with a game in hand.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

82 mins: Salah and Origi link up neatly down the right again. Salah’s cross is a tame one but Holgate somehow slices it behind himself, only for it to fortunately bounce into Pickford’s arms. Could have been comical.

Club captain Jordan Henderson is on as he replaces Diogo Jota.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

80 mins: Chance for Everton! Dele Alli gets in behind Alexander-Arnold and puts it across for Iwobi but the boot of Robertson gets there in front of him to hook the ball away from two yards out!

Liverpool have not got the job done just yet.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

78 mins: Salomon Rondon is on for Demarai Gray. And he’ll be interested in this.

Everton earn themselves a free-kick on the right-hand side, midway inside the Liverpool half. Mykolenko puts it into a dangerous area and Alisson can only punch into the chest of his own player but fortunately it bounces safely away before Liverpool are awarded a foul.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

77 mins: Origi plays a neat one-two with Salah before going down under a challenge from Keane. Not for me, more a shoulder barge than anything else.

Stuart Attwell agrees with me.
