3 Things We Learned From Liverpool’s Derby Win Over Everton

Liverpool thrashed Everton in what was their heaviest defeat since the 5-0 hammering at Goodison Park in 1982. Liverpool went three goals ahead in the first half, and despite a missed penalty, they scored another and held on for the 4-0 win. Here are 3 things that we learned from the match.

1. Derby days defy logic

Ask anyone in the world, and they would never have predicted a 4-0 score line under any circumstances in this fixture. The two teams came into this game just one point and two places apart in the league table, and both teams had injury problems to contend with. It looked as if it would be a close contest between two teams focused on a passing game.

However, Liverpool just looked hungrier of the two sides, and they continued to press Everton who were given no time to settle into the game. Once Liverpool opened the scoring, there was no coming back as Sturridge scored two in close succession to take Liverpool three ahead. Everton came out all guns blazing in the second half but Liverpool weathered the storm and kept the clean sheet to run out 4-0 winners, and hand Everton their heaviest defeat in 21 years.
