Klopp said after the match that he had apologised to Marco Silva, the Everton manager, though that claim was shot down by the former Watford coach.
“No, he didn’t apologise to me,” Silva insisted.
Former West Brom captain Jonas Olsson was critical of Klopp’s actions after Origi’s goal, which came following a horrendous error from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The ex-Premier League star said: “If I’d been an Everton player, I’d have knocked him down, I think.
“You can’t do that when a player has made such a mistake – it is so disrespectful.
“I think Klopp is really fun, but I do not think it this time.”
The Merseyside derby victory ensured Liverpool remain just two points behind league leaders Manchester City.
Klopp’s side travel to Burnley tomorrow evening before visiting Bournemouth for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
