Everton won against Liverpool for the first time since 1999 with their 2-0 win which ends a run of 24 games without a victory at Anfield against their rivals.
They scored their first goal just within three minutes with the help of Richarlison. Everton doubled their lead with a penalty scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson. This result puts Everton level on points with sixth placed Liverpool with a game in hand.
After the match, Jurgen Klopp said the performance was “90 percent positive” even though this is their worst run at home since 1923. Liverpool have failed to score a goal at Anfield for the fourth time in their last five matches.
Klopp told in the press conference: “The first goal, which we have to defend better, gave the direction of the game. It was unnecessary.”
“Everton defended deep and full of passion but there were still moments where we were completely free in the box but we didn’t finish.”, he added.
