John Barnes believes Liverpool FC defender Joe Gomez has flourished playing alongside Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker. The game finished 1-1, Green was dropped, England came second in their group and they were then thrashed 4-1 by Germany in the first knockout round.

However, the ball came down on Jordan Pickford, who attempted to grasp at the ball, only to tip it on to the crossbar twice for Origi to head in from close range.

James Milner and Naby Keita are options for Klopp if he wants to rotate his midfield while centre-back Joel Matip will be hoping to be involved having fallen out-of-favour this season but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains out with a long-term knee injury.

Everton manager Marco Silva could not hide his frustration with the circumstances of the defeat.

Liverpool will assess the fitness of Sadio Mane and Andrew Robertson after they picked up knocks against Everton as Jurgen Klopp prepares to freshen things up at Burnley.

"It is such a nice story that Divock Origi can score a goal", said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

By losing in the cruelest of ways, Everton remained without a win at Anfield since 1999. Unfortunately it's been me today but move on and I'll go and perform on Wednesday to my best.

Second-placed Liverpool are two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, while Everton are sixth.

But though the final 2-2 result was better than what most people expected before kick-off, the Saints' inability to capitalise on the hot start means they still only have one Premier League win all season. Britain's Press Association reported that a Tottenham supporter was arrested for throwing a banana skin onto the field after Aubameyang scored and celebrated in front of away fans. Either way the striker would be the first attacking option off the bench.

Arsenal achieved the win without playmaker Mesut Ozil, with the club citing "back spasms" as the reason for his latest non-appearance.

The Blues have lost just one of the 27 Premier League meetings with the Cottagers and are unbeaten in the last 17.

What a moment. The victory keeps Liverpool within two points of first-place Manchester City, and it also gives the club bragging rights over its local rival.
