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 1-0 Everton

75 mins: Dele Alli’s first act is to shove Thiago when the Liverpool man is playing a simple pass on the halfway line. You can almost hear Frank Lampard telling Alli to ‘let him know you’re there’.

Liverpool have kept the ball for a good few minutes now. They know Everton need to open up and try to get something and that will play into Klopp’s side’s hands.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton

72 mins: Everton have been pinned in their own half ever since the Liverpool goal 10 minutes ago... BUT NOT NOW! SO CLOSE FOR EVERTON!

Finally they break out through Gordon. He finds Iwobi who sends it on to Gray. He takes on the shot from the edge of the box and it whistles past the post! Not sure Alisson had that one covered!

Closest Everton have come, that.

70 mins: For all of Everton’s hard work, they are still set to leave Anfield with nothing to show for it.

Diaz, who has been sensational since coming on, ties Coleman in knots before forcing a corner with a shot off the Everton captain’s leg.

66 mins: Inches away from 2-0!

Pickford flaps at an Alexander-Arnold corner before Matip’s header is cleared off the line by Holgate. Salah then tries his luck from 15 yards out and it’s only just over the top.

Anfield is bouncing.

64 mins: Utterly ridiculous from Diaz! The Liverpool crowd are up and newboy Diaz gives them exactly what they want.

He controls a crossfield ball with the most audacious of touches before driving into the box and forcing a corner with a dangerous low cross.

All Liverpool now.

GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Everton (Robertson, 62)

62 mins: THERE IS THE BREAKTHROUGH!

It’s taken more than an hour but finally Liverpool have the goal they have been searching for! Origi links up with Salah and the Egyptian stands up a cross for someone to attack. Robertson accepts the invitation at the back post as he thumps home the header from close range.

Could well be a HUGE moment in both teams’ seasons.

Liverpool 0-0 Everton

62 mins: Can the introduction of fresh legs give Liverpool the edge they need to secure the three points here? Everton are still defending resolutely and offering more on the break now too.
