Liverpool strikes 2-0 against Everton


Liverpool defeated Merseyside rivals Everton 2-0 on Monday night at Anfield, beginning a much-needed winning streak.

Recent defeats to Wolves and Brighton had lowered the Reds’ spirits, but expert breakaway goals from Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo—who scored his first goal for the team—ensured that Jurgen Klopp triumphed in their touchline duel with Sean Dyche.

In place of Dominic Calvert-Lewin in Everton’s starting lineup was Ellis Simms. A mistake by Joel Matip early on gave the former Sunderland loanee a chance to shoot, but it deflected off Joe Gomez.

Liverpool were more dangerous in the first half than they had in recent weeks, but Gakpo was unable to score the game’s first noteworthy opportunity. The Netherlands international only managed to flick his header wide of the far post after Darwin Nunez crossed in his direction.

Everton was defeated from their own attacking corner as Idrissa Gueue lofted a long-range effort deep into the Anfield crowd, who cheered the opening goal shortly thereafter.

James Tarkowski headed Aleix Iwobi‘s high corner kick back across the box and off the post. Instead of going for goal, Dwight McNeil‘s attempted shot was blocked by Nunez, who soon teamed up with Salah and carried the ball into Everton’s half. Salah was once more the recipient of the Uruguayan’s cross, and the Egyptian took advantage of Jordan Pickford‘s incredibly poor positioning to prod in.

Nunez’s speed was once more a big advantage as the Reds continued to pose a threat. Prior to Gomez’s miss, the 23-year-old had a shot from Fabinho’s knockdown blocked.

Everton defeated Arsenal in style in their debut game under Sean Dyche, but when Liverpool scored their second goal, it became much harder for them to bring anything back to Goodison Park.

Once more, the hosts soon sprung on the break as Andy Robertson sprinted forward and found Salah. Trent Alexander-Arnold received the ball wide, and his low cross found Gakpo uncontested in the box.

After a powerful Gakpo run, Nunez curled wide to prolong his goalless streak. Everton then had a chance to score, but replacement Tom Davies could only head the ball high.

Salah caught Roberto Firmino‘s flick late in the game and nearly made it three, but Pickford blocked Salah’s attempt. Everton is down in 18th place, while Liverpool finished the game and now sits ninth in the Premier League.
