Everton 1-4 Liverpool
As it be, Liverpool showed off their overwhelming strength compared to Everton in the Merseyside derby. Taking the advantage of playing on the Goodison Park home stadium, Everton subjectively played attacking instead of defending. Thus, their performance in the beginning minutes was pretty good and firm. Liverpool attacked repeatedly to the opponents’ domain as well. The Reds had the best players in the Premier League so that they easily controlled the game and made Everton’s defense in trouble.
Just 9 minutes after the beginning whistle had been resounded, the visiting team had the opening goal. From the perfect assist of Andrew Robertson, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson left footed shot from the center of the box to the bottom left corner, and then that was 1-0 for the Reds. The 31-year-old midfielder is the first one of Liverpool who both scores and assists in a match at Goodison Park since Steven Gerrard’s in 2005.
Captain Henderson opens the scoring for the Reds
In the 19th minute, another goal came to the Kop. Jordan Henderson continued playing impressively after completing his first goal. He assisted Mohamed Salah following a fast break and the 11-number did not miss his chance to double the scoring for the team. Salah shot by his left foot from the right side of the box to the top left corner, knocking out Everton’s goalie once again.
The home team tried to counterattack at the end of the first half, and they also got success with a surprising goal in the 38th minute. Richarlison và Demarai Gray coordinated perfectly. Demarai Gray speeded up to pass Joel Matip and finished with a shot, beating goalkeeper Alisson Becker. The first half ended with a 2-1 score for the visiting team.
Into the second half, Everton continued playing well, making pressure on Alisson. However, they once again let the Red score before finding another chance to equalize the game. In the 64th minute, Liverpool had their third goal thanks to a speed counterattacking. Salah occupied the ball from Seamus Coleman’s confusing act and skillfully finished with his speed and vision, knocking out Everton’s Jordan Pickford.
Andy Robertson also had a wonderful day when earning the second assist in the 78th minute. Diogo Jota scored a shot from a difficult angle on the left to the top left corner of the net to confirm the 4-1 win for the Reds.
