Impressive Liverpool Defeat Everton Right in Their Backyard in Entertaining Premier League Clash

  • Henderson and Diogo Jota were also on the scoresheet for the Reds as Liverpool continue their chase for the Premier League

Liverpool maintain their impressive form in the English Premier League on Wednesday night, December 1, following a 4-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

Sky Sports reports that Jurgen Klopp’s men were rewarded with their early dominance in stunning fashion by captain Jordan Henderson who opened the scoring in the 9th minute.

Henderson put the ball out to Mane and Jota on the left and arrived late at the end of the area to dispatch Robertson's cut-back with a wonderous left-footed finish.

Henderson released Mohamed Salah behind Digne, who was woefully out of position, and the Egyptian streaked into the area before opening up his body and curling another stunning effort beyond Pickford.

The hosts then pulled one back in the 38th minute after Richarlison received the ball in the final third and wasted no time getting his head up and releasing Demarai Gray in behind.

From there on it was all Gray's work as he kept his composure and slot Everton's first goal in five-and-a-half hours of football through the legs of Alisson to make it 2-1.

Just after the hour mark, Liverpool restored their two-goal lead thanks to the opportunism of Mohamed Salah - but it was gift-wrapped from Everton.

It all came from an Everton corner, which is cleared to Gray, who then offloaded the captain Coleman.

The pass back does Coleman no favours and his heavy touch was pounced on by Salah. From there on it was world-class from Salah, as he raced away from Coleman and then slotted his second home past Pickford making it 3-1.
