World news – Match report: Liverpool are beaten by Everton in the Anfield Merseyside Derby



Liverpool suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday night.

Richarlison gave the Blues the lead in the competition after three minutes when hosts Jordan Henderson lost to an injury in a frustrating first half.

Jürgen Klopp named an unchanged team, the RB Leipzig earlier this week in the Champions League defeated.

Everton quickly came out of the blocks and took advantage of a very early advantage in the encounter.

James Rodriguez played a through pass behind the Liverpool backline, in the end Richarlison could be seen behind Alisson Becker. </ However, Liverpool reacted well and came close to equalizing three times in two minutes.

Roberto Firmino’s sidefoot finish in the area was distracted by Michael Keane in time before Henderson scored his first volley from Jordan Pickford was turned back.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s hissing shot from distance was then knocked over by the Everton stopper as the Reds enjoyed a strong spell.

But Henderson was dealt a blow when Henderson was sent off injured in the 29th minute – after initially attempting to continue playing. Nathaniel Phillips replaced the captain.

Liverpool needed Alisson to remove a Seamus Coleman header from the area after Lucas Digne came on from the left.

Phillips then headed in after an Andy Robertson free kick the last chance the Reds had in the first half into the side netting.

Liverpool started the second round well, and Sadio Mane ended twice early. The No. 10 went just a fraction of the way before being rejected by a Keane challenge in the last ditch.

After a good connection game with Firmino, substitute Xherdan Shaqiri shoved Mohamed Salah into goal, with Pickford fighting the close combat of the Egyptian.

After Everton had survived these chances, he got the second goal from the penalty spot.

After a counterattack, Dominic Calvert-Lewin was thwarted by Alisson, but then classified as overthrown by Alexander-Arnold, as he watched the rebound.

Sigurdsson increased the penalty to give the visitors a two-goal advantage and their first Anfield win since 1999.
