Jurgen Klopp won his 100th Premier League match in charge of Liverpool as the Reds dismantled their fierce rivals Everton 5-2 at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
The Merseyside derby was Klopp’s 159th top-flight fixture in charge – and he has now become the second quickest manager in Premier League history to reach a centurion of victories.

Klopp’s men are 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League
Jose Mourinho holds the title as the boss who did it the quickest, having bulldozed his way to 100 wins in record time during his two spells with Chelsea.
However, the Portuguese’s record could yet be beaten by Pep Guardiola, who has led Manchester City to 97 wins in just 129 matches.
Liverpool’s victory over Everton means Klopp is now unbeaten in nine league and cup meetings with the Toffees, winning six of them.
Goals from Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri put Jurgen Klopp’s men 2-0 up but Michael Keane’s neat finish pulled one back for Everton on 21 minutes.
But a excellent touch and lob from Origi and Sadio Mane’s strike made it 4-1 to the Reds. Richarlison scored on the stroke of half time with a header.
There was only one more goal in the second half and that fell to Liverpool – Georginio Wijnaldum firing the ball home following great work on the left from substitute Roberto Firmino.
