Liverpool FC – Everton FC | Klopp team conceded fourth consecutive defeat in the Merseyside derby

 Liverpool FC - Everton FC |  Klopp team conceded fourth consecutive defeat in the Merseyside derby

It was only two and a half minutes before the doorbell rang for the first time in the Liverpool box. James Rodríguez was headed by Abdoulaye Doucouré.  The  Colombian passed Richarlison about 18 meters from the penalty area with perfect timing, who escaped Ozan Kabak and shot flat to 1-0 into the far corner on the right in the box (3rd).


 The  guests then withdrew collectively and, thanks to their passive approach, left the playground equipment to the LFC over long distances. Liverpool first had to deal with the early shock, but after a few minutes managed to convert the many ball actions into compelling scoring opportunities.

Everton occasionally put pinpricks through which Carlo Ancelotti’s team had good opportunities to make it 2-0. But since both teams missed these chances, it went 0-1 into the dressing room.

Liverpool increased the already high percentage of possession after the break. Everton was still very low in the collective and cleverly condensed in the potentially dangerous positions, which the LFC had its problems with, but due to its tireless game forward, it still developed some opportunities from good final positions.

But mainly because of the lack of necessary precision in the last pass and in the end of the goal, the zero was still on the wrong side from Reds’ point of view.

In the final phase, Everton brought a straight counterattack into a promising shooting position. In the 81st minute, Trent Alexander-Arnold did not reach a teammate with a cross from the right in the penalty area. Tom Davies then played vertically forward – the counter-move rolled.

 The re he failed with his low shot at keeper Alisson, who defended to the side. Calvert-Lewin tried to use the margin, but fell after contact with Alexander-Arnold, who was lying on the ground, which is why the referee decided on a penalty kick.

Joker Gylfi Sigurdsson converted this to the 2-0 final score (83rd).


 The  voices for the game:

Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool FC coach):©

 The  first goal that we had to defend better set the direction of the game – it was unnecessary. ©

 The re were a lot of good football moments so we were good from a creative point of view, but we had to watch the game and we weren’t calm enough.”

Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool FC): “You know what the derby means for the club, the fans and the players. It means a lot and the defeat is particularly painful.”

Carlo Ancelotti (Trainer FC Everton): “After a long time Everton can win at Anfield – that’s a good gift for our fans. ©

 The  performance was good: we were focused, worked hard and when we got the chance we were clinical.”


 The  tweet about the game:

It was only the second time in Premier League history that the Toffees took a tour of Anfield Road to half-time. Previously they succeeded in this in September 1999, when Everton FC beat their city rivals. It was his last win at Anfield up to that game – but that changed that evening.

It was noticeable: Liverpool’s personnel worries were growing


 The  reigning champions were already beset with injury concerns in the run-up to this Merseyside derby. With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, two central defenders have already been out for months, with Joel Matip another central defender has been missing for a few weeks.

Against Everton, captain Jordan Henderson played half-left in the back four. But since he hurt his thigh in a running duel in the 26th minute without physical contact and was replaced a little later, Nathaniel Phillips came into play and took over the Henderson position. Thus, the combination of Philipps and Ozan Kabak resulted in the 18th different Liverpool center-back duo in the current season.


 The  statistics: 23

After 23 compulsory games (eleven wins, twelve draws) without bankruptcy against Everton FC, the Reds received another defeat. Thus ended Liverpool’s longest unbeaten streak against a single club that day.
