Jurgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct after running on to the pitch while celebrating Liverpool's late winner in Sunday's Merseyside derby against Everton, the Football Association has confirmed.

Liverpool claimed a 1-0 win over their local rivals at Anfield thanks to a late Divock Origi goal, which moved them back to within two points of pacesetters Manchester City.

Origi nodded in from close range after Jordan Pickford made a mess of a sliced Virgil van Dijk volley, and Klopp reacted by darting onto the pitch in celebration.

The German ran straight to goalkeeper Alisson and the pair embraced in the middle of the pitch, before Klopp jogged back to the touchline emphatically punching the air.

Klopp said sorry for his actions in his post-match news conference, though Everton boss Marco Silva insisted he never received a face-to-face apology.
