Klopp insists Merseyside derby is not Liverpool’s most important game

Follow all the action as Everton gesig Liverpool in the Merseyside derby this evening.

Rafael Benitez’s short-lived tenure at Goodison Park is coming under increasing strain, with the club having now lost five of their last six Premierliga speletjies. The travelling fans began to turn on the Spaniard after a miserable 1-0 at Brentford last weekend and Everton urgently need to produce a meaningful performance in order to alleviate the pressure, with the club currently languishing in 14th. They will benefit from the return of Richarlison up front, who can enliven the Toffees’ blunt attack after serving a suspension.

Intussen, Liverpool are in far higher spirits and could even finish the evening top of the table if they are victorious over their rivals and Manchester City slip-up at Aston Villa. Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored 10 goals in their last three games, with thrashings of Arsenal and Southampton sandwiching a comfortable Champions League victory over Porto. That has left the Reds just two points adrift of league leaders Chelsea, with Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane all in tremendous form. Follow all the latest updates live below:

Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

51 min: Chance! Liverpool come close to a third after winning the ball in the middle of the park. Alexander-Arnold bursts through the middle of the pitch before slotting the ball to Mane in the box. It’s very close to being offside but the flag stays down and Mane belts a right-footed effort at goal only to be denied by Godfrey throwing himself in front of the shot to make the block.

Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

48 min: Everton win a throw on on the right side. It comes to Richarlison in the box and he flicks it over to Rondon who is tackled by Van Dijk. The ball loops into the air as Rondon goes down but Alisson comes out and claims it. There’s a slight appeal to the referee for a penalty but nothing comes of it.

Salah’s brilliant form continues

Mo Salah has been directly involved in at least one goal in each of his last 12 Premier League appearances (11 doelwitte, 7 assists), the third player to achieve that feat after Stan Collymore (12, Maart – Augustus 1995) and Jamie Vardy (15, Augustus – Desember 2015).

Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

Goals from Jordan Henderson, Mo Salah and Demarai Gray mean this match is delicately poised at half-time. The next goal could be a big one, if Everton score it they’re back in the game but a third for Liverpool may just take the match away from the Toffees.

Halftyd: Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

45 min: Three minutes of added time to play at the end of the first half. Both teams will want to get in and regroup. Salah brings the ball to the right side of the Everton box and lays it off to Henderson. He floats a cross in towards Mane who fires a header at the goal but Pickford is there to palm the effort away!

Everton 1 – 2 Liverpool

41 min: We’ve suddenly got a game on at Goodison Park. Liverpool may be a bit at fault for slowing their tempo but Everton have hung in their and took their chance.

Doucoure pokes a pass into Gray who looks to take on Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho. He steps over the ball and goes to ground on the edge of the box. Fabinho raises his hands in bewilderment and the referee pulls out another yellow card, booking Gray for diving.
