The Reds had to work hard to keep the pressure on Manchester City in the title race with Andy Robertson making the breakthrough in the 62nd before Divock Origi sealed all three points in the closing stages.
Tension boiled over in the closing stages of the first half when Richarlison came down easily after a small encounter with Thiago.

The Brazilian was greeted with huge boos as he lay on the ground feigning a serious injury, before teammate Abdoulaye Doucoure knocked down Fabinho to spark a clash between the two groups of players.
Richarlison and Everton’s approach certainly frustrated their hosts and the choice of Fabinho’s image for his social media post cannot have been a coincidence.
The midfielder shared a photo of himself dribbling with Richarlison falling, clutching his face behind him.
Captioning the image, he wrote: “What a win!” Until the end, guys!

Reds supporters appreciated the post, with the majority of responses centering on Richarlison.
‘Excellent choice for the picture’ wrote one while another said ‘I know you did this to Richarlison on purpose’.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was unimpressed with Richarlison’s antics.
As a commentator for Sky Sports, he responded to the incident involving the striker saying: “Honestly get up”. Get up, carry on.
‘If Doucoure receives a yellow card because his teammate falls to the ground. Stupid de Doucoure trying to stop the game but Richarlison… there’s nothing wrong with him.’
