Everton recorded their first Premier League win at Anfield since 1999 as they beat Liverpool 2-0 to go level on points with the champions.

Kloop dishing instructions

Richarlison broke the deadlock after just three minutes, latching on to James Rodriguez’s through-ball before firing past Alisson.

Jordan Henderson’s volley forced a fingertip save from Jordan Pickford before Alisson denied Seamus Coleman’s header. Henderson then limped off to deepen Liverpool’s injury woes in defence.

Liverpool started the second half brightly, with Pickford thwarting Sadio Mane and then Mohamed Salah when through on goal.

Jurgen Klopp’s first derby defeat and a fourth home loss in a row for Liverpool was confirmed seven minutes from time.

Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a penalty after fellow substitute Dominic-Calvert Lewin had been fouled by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Everton celebration

Everton are seventh on 40 points, below Liverpool on goal difference but having played a match fewer.
