Everton eased past Liverpool in a 2-0 victory on Saturday at Anfield. Both Liverpool and Everton arrived at the match from previous defeats in the league.

As it stands, both teams are on 40 points and occupy 6th and 7th places respectively after 25 matches.

Everton started strong and were rewarded, following early goal from Richarlison in the 3rd minute, to take a 1-0 lead into half time.

Everton continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with Gylfi Sigurdsson opening the scoring, 83 minutes in. They managed to see the game out with a clean sheet and a final score of 2-0.

Liverpool brought on Nathaniel Phillips, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi for Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara. Everton brought on Gylfi Sigurdsson, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alex Iwobi, to replace Andre Gomes, James Rodriguez and Richarlison.

There were bookings for Ozan Kabak and Sadio Mane from Liverpool and Andre Gomes for Everton.
