Liverpool Slip Up In Title Race As Everton Claim First Merseyside Derby Home Win In 14 Years

Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes suffered a blow following Wednesday night’s 2-0 loss against Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.

Everton have now won a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park for the first time since 17 October 2010.

A goal in each half by Jarrad Branthwaite and Dominic Calvert-Lewin saw Sean Dyche become the second manager to beat a Liverpool side handled by Jurgen Klopp.

The first manager to lead an Everton side to defeat a Reds side handled by Klopp was Carlo Ancelotti.

Defeat to Everton means Liverpool, who are on 74 points, are three points behind leaders Arsenal on the log.

Klopp’s men could drop to third spot of Manchester City defeat Brighton on Thursday.

For the Toffees, they are in 16th position on 33 points and are eight points away from relegation zone.

Everton took the lead in the 27th minute through Branthwaite who fired at goal, and Alisson got a hand to it, but the ball rolled over the line.

Calvert-Lewin then made it 2-0 in the 58th minute as he rose highest to head in a corner kick.

Other results saw Manchester United beat bottom club Sheffield United 4-2 at Old Trafford, Crystal Palace beat Newcastle 2-0, and Wolves lost 1-0 at home to Bournemouth.

    Klopp loses his FINAL MERSEYSIDE DERBY.
    Ever gracious in defeat, he went to give Sean Dyche a hug after the game.
    Liverpool officially wave goodbye to the premier league trophy this season. They will try again next season, with a new coach, as Klopp will be gone by then.
    Crystal Palace are in a rich vein of form, with Eze in particular playing the football of his life. Let’s hope Northgate is not paying attention.
    How about Mateta’s goal celebration? Nowadays after scoring, he does the BIG MAN WAKA and the salute to the crowd at the corner flag. Nice one.
    Coach Glasner is doing a terrific job. Can Crystal Palace challenge for Europe next season?
