Divock Origi scored a bizarre winner in the sixth minute of stoppage time as Liverpool beat Everton 1-0 in dramatic fashion on Sunday to maintain its 19-year unbeaten record over its Merseyside rival at Anfield.
Virgil van Dijk mishit a speculative volley high into the air from outside the area, with the ball landing on the crossbar off the fingertips of Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. It bounced a second time onto the bar and dropped down to the waiting Origi, who headed home from a meter out.
The victory kept second-placed Liverpool within two points of Manchester City after 14 games. Everton hasn’t won at Anfield in the league since 1999.
Origi, who came on as a substitute for Mohamed Salah, hadn’t scored for Liverpool since May 2017, having spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg.
