Jubilation and best wishes for Divock Origi as Liverpool players react to win against Everton

Liverpool were 4-0 winners in the Merseyside derby against Everton.

As far as derbies go for Liverpool, it was a stroll - quite literally in the second half. They may have had to work up until their opening goal from Divock Origi just before half time but after it was swiftly followed by Mamadou Sakho's second goal within a week, the outcome was resolved there and then.

The one negative to Liverpool's night was Origi being stretchered off with an ankle injury after he was on the end of a dreadful tackle from Ramiro Funes Mori.

Daniel Sturridge replaced Origi to score the Reds third, and Philippe Coutinho's strike would round off the scoring on a night where Liverpool could have had more. Jurgen Klopp will take that for his first Merseyside derby, but he will surely know that tougher tests are to come from the neighbours.

Nevertheless, it was a night when Liverpool, for the large part enjoyed himself. Mamadou Sakho did plenty of reacting on twitter, including picking up the man of the match prize from the club but he also wished Origi a speedy recovery from his ankle injury.




Despite his injury, Divock Origi was content with finding the net for the first time in a derby, scoring his 10th goal of the season in the process, and thanked fans for their messages of support after he was stretchered off: 



Simon Mignolet had his most hassle free game in a Liverpool shirt as Everton failed to register a shot on target against him. He seemed to enjoy his evening, but is keen for his teammate and fellow Belgian to return to fitness as quickly as possible: 


Nathaniel Clyne put out one statement about the city after the game, which given the display from both sides is hard to dispute, while Daniel Sturridge expressed good 'vibes' like he usually does after a victory - in particular when he's scored:
