February 20, 2021
The defending champion had to admit defeat 2-0 in the city derby against Everton on Saturday at Anfield Road and thus suffered the fourth championship defeat in a row. Liverpool are sixth in the table, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.
In the Merseyside Derby against Everton, the “Reds” fell behind in the third minute. Richarlison met for the guests. After that, the hosts clearly dictated the game and missed some chances.
Everton presented itself more efficiently. Dominic Calvert-Lewin took a penalty from a counterattack, which was converted by Gylfi Sigurdsson (83).
For the “Blues” it was the first derby win after 20 unsuccessful attempts in the Premier League and the first success in Anfield since 1999. Liverpool only got 2 points from the last 6 home games.
Southampton and Chelsea split in a draw
A few hours earlier, the downward slide from Southampton was at least braked. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s squad wrestled a 1-1 home win from the most recently strong Chelsea and scored for the first time after six league defeats in a row.
