Merseyside is Red once again thanks to Divock Origi – and Reds fans were more than delighted.
It was a tight game that looked to be heading towards a goalless draw, but then Jordan Pickford made a mess of a looping Virgil van Dijk volley and Origi was there to poke over the line.
After a famous victory, these tweets sum up the mood among Reds fans – from praise for Origi, Alisson and Fabinho, to a cheeky dig at Pickford.
Divock Origi may just be the greatest Belgian to grace the Premier League.

Now I've calmed down. Fucking brilliant way to win a derby. Everton were excellent at times. Bout time they came and had a go. Thought Allison, Fabinho and Gini were immense. And that clearance from Gomez 😍 #LFC

No better way to win a Derby than a last minute winner! Best Everton performance at Anfield for over 20 yrs……Alisson proved why LFC paid the money for him, Fabinho did very well also. Gomes excellent & that deal needs sealing in Jan!! #thisplacehasgonebeserk #LIVEVE

This game today showed why we paid so much for Alisson. Immense whenever called upon and very relaxed throughout #LFC

Hands up who thought Origi would be the hero this afternoon? We certainly did not see that coming, but what a moment it was. It’s going to take some time to come down from that!
