SAKHO: KOLO TOURE TOLD ME I WOULD SCORE
Liverpool player, Mamadou Sakho, ran straight to the arms of team mate Kolo Toure after scoring another goal just before half-time in the game against Everton this week.
The Frenchman after nodding home the goal ran to the hosts' bench in order to revel in his strike with his fellow defender.
After the game, the player told Liverpoolfc.com:
"Kolo told me this morning I would score again so that's why when I scored I thought of him and ran to celebrate with him."
He also spoke on the efforts of the supporters at Anfield. The 26-year-old went on to praise the role of the fans in what was a remarkably one-sided Merseyside derby victory for Jürgen Klopp's men.
"It was a very, very good atmosphere, a very good result for us, and I think we deserved it because we played very well.
"The 12th player was with us - the fans. It was a really good night for Liverpool," Sakho said.
The win against The Toffees restored confidence to The Reds and brought up their fourth consecutive victory in all competitions - a run that also includes that famous comeback win over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League.
Sakho advised his team not to get carried away even after earning the decent results, especially with so much still at stake during the remaining games.
"When people start to speak about Liverpool beating Dortmund [etc], we need to stay calm, continue to work, and we will see.
"We need to stay focused for every game because this year is not finished and we need to work.
"We need to enjoy tonight but after [that] we need to stay focused because in football every game is different and we need a positive result in the next game," Sakho added on an endnote.
Kolo Toure was on the sidelines during the encounter but had played the previous match against Bournemouth.
