It is often said that Derby’s do have their own context irrespective of the form one is in but it doesn’t hold true this time around. The town was painted red as Liverpool scored 4 on their enemy territory to defeat Everton, let’s have a look at the match highlights.
The kick-off saw Rafa Benitez getting some boos from their neighbour. However, the men in Blue and White started with full intensity over the men in Reds. The form which Liverpool are in currently it didn’t take them long to break the deadlock. With the skipper leading from the front, Liverpool had a lead just inside 10 minutes courtesy of Henderson beautiful curling goal.
Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah couldn’t be kept quiet for too long. Thus, the Egyptian gave the Reds a two-goal cushion at the brink of 19 minutes. With this, Jurgen Klopp’s men got a little comfortable, which gave an opportunity to Rafa’s men. This resulted in a half-time scoreline of Everton 1-2 Liverpool as Demarai Gray got one back for The Toffees.
The second half was all about the Reds. The former Premier League champions never gave a chance to The Dogs of War. The Egyptian is known for making something out of nothing and so he does it this time around as well. Salah gave Liverpool their 2 goals lead back intact as the no. 11 ran past everyone from the half-line to score a brace for himself. While Diogo Jota sums up the game for the visitors in the Merseyside battle.
Thus, the Reds are just too hot to handle for their oppositions at the moment. Maintaining an average of 3 goals per game this season, Liverpool are on fire.
Liverpool is my Religion and Anfield is my Church. 17th May 1996 the date I had my blood coloured red. The one you love the most you can not live without it and that is football to me.
