Liverpool Thump Everton In Demolition Derby To Consolidate On EPL Summit

Liverpool surged eight points clear at the top of the Premier League as Divock Origi was the scourge of Everton once more in a thrilling 5-2 Merseyside derby win for the European champions at Anfield.

All but one of the goals came before halftime as Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri, who replaced the rested Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, put Liverpool 2-0 up inside 17 minutes.

Michael Keane pulled a goal back for Everton before Origi got his second and Sadio Mane finished off a blistering counter-attack to make it 4-1.

The scoring did not stop there as Richarlison cut the deficit once more, but Georginio Wijnaldum hammered the final nail in the Everton coffin a minute from time as an eighth defeat in 11 league games sees the Toffees slip into the bottom three.

“All the goals were incredible,” said a delighted Jurgen Klopp, who made five changes in total. “Wonderful goals, sensational passes, super pieces of football. I loved it a lot.”

Klopp insisted this fixture remained the “standout” one in Liverpool’s season despite the massive points difference between the sides at either end of the table.

However, the German’s actions spoke louder than words as he could afford the luxury of leaving out Firmino and Salah at the beginning of a hectic month for the Reds in three competitions.

“We needed fresh legs and I had to show my respect to the boys in the squad,” added Klopp. “They proved it. It is much more fun making changes, all of the boys are ready to deliver performances like this.” (Reuters)
