The English champions FC Liverpool have suffered their fourth defeat in a row in the Premier League. In the local derby against FC Everton, coach Jürgen Klopp’s troubled team lost 2-0 (1-0) on Saturday. It was also the Reds’ fourth consecutive home defeat – the last time it happened almost 100 years ago in December 1923 – and the first win for Everton at Anfield in over 20 years.
After a few minutes, Everton took the lead through Richarlison (3rd minute). James Rodríguez hung up on the Brazilian.
The former Hoffenheim Gylfi Sigurdsson (83.) made a penalty for the final score after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was fouled by Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The narrow decision on the penalty kick was confirmed by the video referee.

The champions, who won 2-0 against RB Leipzig in the Champions League during the week, revealed similar problems as in previous league games. Although the Klopp-Elf controlled the ball, it was too rarely dangerous and repeatedly showed weaknesses in defense. Liverpool are sixth with 40 points, followed directly by rivals Everton, who are tied for points and coached by Carlo Ancelotti.
