Premier League Everton – Liverpool: Salah with a brace! Klopp celebrates Derby victory – football

Liverpool shines red!

Liverpool FC won the 239th Merseyside derby against Everton 4-1 on Wednesday evening – thanks in part to super star Mo Salah!

In the sold-out Goodison Park, the Klopp team doesn’t let anything go away, dominating from the start.

After three unused big chances (one Matip, two Salah) the captain takes it into his own hands: Jordan Henderson gets the ball on the edge of the box, pulls it – 1-0 (9th)!

And also in the following minutes of play, the “Reds” are clearly superior. This is rewarded in the 19th minute: Henderson sends Salah from his own half with a through ball, the striker converts to 2-0.

Liverpool then slows down a bit. Gray takes advantage of this and makes for the 1: 2 connection hit (38th).

The game becomes a bit more muddled by a number of nicknames on both sides until the break.

In the second half, however, things continue to be entertaining, both teams on an equal footing.

Which: The next Liverpool goal falls directly after a corner from Everton. Coleman fails to accept the ball, Salah is there and ties up the brace (64th). The 13th goal of the season in the 14th Premier League game for the Egyptian – unbelievable!

Diogo Jota (79th) then ensures the final 4: 1!

Liverpool, which could not win the last three Merseyside derbies (0-0, 2-2, 0-2), are still in third place after the win (31 points), behind ManCity (32 points) and Chelsea (33 points) .

For the team of Rafael Benitez, who was “Reds” coach from 2004 to 2010, it is the eighth winless game in a row and for the time being in 14th place.

By the way, one person should be particularly happy about this injury-free city derby: Virgil van Dijk! The Liverpool key player suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in the last visit after an (unpunished) foul by Everton keeper Pickford. This time he only had to endure the whistles of the “Toffees” fans …
