Klopp fined £8,000 for derby celebrations

Allison started off the counter-attack that led to Liverpool's third, as Salah lofted the ball to an onrushing Xherdan Shaqiri, who buried his first-time shot past Hart to seal the points.

Jurgen Klopp ran on the pitch to embrace goalkeeper Alisson as Anfield erupted.

Liverpool will look to keep pace with Man City atop the Premier League standings on Wednesday, facing Burnley.

However, Klopp's passionate celebrations have drawn criticism.

"How people judge it, I have no influence on", Klopp said. I did it against Southampton (last season).

"I'm happy at Liverpool". Things happen in your mind and your heart. "That's what rules are for and if you break rules you have to be fined for it", he told reporters. "I talk for my side but of course you have to be respectful for the other ones".

"I'm always thinking around that nine or 10 mark when you really get that grounded fitness and you get your eye in and get used to what's going on again in the Premier League".

A set-piece presented Everton with the game's first chance with just four minutes gone as Lucas Digne swung in a well-worked free-kick and defender Yerry Mina rose from a group of players but saw his attempt fly well wide. But that's the sort of problems it can cause.

"I have no problem with that, I think it is completely normal". You can not go on to the middle of the pitch, no matter what the circumstances. I didn't want to run.

"My respect to Everton could not be bigger after that game". They are just an outstanding side.

There's no doubt that the Salah, Firmino, Mané axis is still a very potent threat - but there's also no hiding that they are not quite at the level of the second half of last season. We wanted to show that by bringing strikers on. "We are so delighted with what he's done in three years but he can do better".

Klopp has received sympathy from the likes of City manager Pep Guardiola and on Tuesday more came from his opposing manager in the derby, Everton's Marco Silva. "I didn't see any disrespect".

He apologised for his actions but the Football Association announced on Monday afternoon that he had been charged with misconduct. "He is likely to accept the charge, which would result in a fine and a warning as to his future conduct".
