Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Divock Origi has not broken his ankle following the horror tackle from Ramiro Funes Mori in the Merseyside derby.

The 4-0 win over Everton was overshadowed as Divock Origi was stretchered off following a horror challenge from Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori.

Goals from Origi, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho made it a comfortable night for Jurgen Klopp’s men at Anfield.

The Argentine defender was shown a straight red card – the 21st in 48 Premier League Merseyside derbies – and will miss Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United at Wembley, a huge blow for under-fire Everton boss Roberto Martinez, whose other senior centre-half, Phil Jagielka, is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Funes Mori left the field beating the club badge on his chest and former Everton midfielder Peter Reid said: ‘It’s a really poor challenge. You can’t condone anything like that.

‘He should have thought about the badge when he was defending. It is a scandalous challenge and I just hope Divock Origi is okay.’

Funes Mori’s sending off is even more harmful for Everton as Jagielka is out with a damaged hamstring, while John Stones limped off at Anfield on Wednesday night.
