Everton claimed their first win at Anfield since 1999 thanks to Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson as Liverpool slipped to another defeat.
Liverpool suffered a fourth straight Premier League defeat as Everton ended their miserable run at Anfield with a 2-0 victory on Saturday.
In a match that Liverpool went on to dominate after a lacklustre first-half display, Richarlison’s third-minute goal and Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late penalty proved enough for Everton to claim a first away win over their Merseyside rivals since September 1999.
Liverpool’s efforts were not helped by the loss of Jordan Henderson to injury, with Sadio Mane missing two presentable chances that might have made Everton pay for profligate finishing from Seamus Coleman and Richarlison.
The centre of derby drama in recent meetings, Jordan Pickford also played a pivotal role, making a wonderful save from Mohamed Salah, setting the stage for Sigurdsson to condemn Jurgen Klopp’s champions to a fourth successive home defeat.
