Liverpool kept the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, courtesy of a last-gasp 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday.

The game saw a plethora of chances spurned, with Yerra Mina, Andre Gomes, Theo Walcott and Gylfi Sigurdsson all going close for the Toffees.

The derby clash looked to be heading for stalemate when, six minutes into injury time, Jordan Pickford decided to reach up and keep Virgil van Dijk’s sliced in shot in play when it looked set to land out of play top of the net.

Instead, the England number one palmed the ball into the path of sub Divock Origi, who headed home from point-blank range…

That bizarre goal was Origi’s third goal against Everton and came not long after the sub had hit the post from close-range.

The hardly-deserved win, courtesy of that Pickford ricket, sees Liverpool stay within two points of league leaders Manchester City.

Marco Silva’s Everton, on the other hand, stay sixth, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.
