Everton triumphs in Merseyside derby, dents Liverpool’s title hopes further.

Sean Dyche was a happy man after the final whistle on April 24 as he saw off Liverpool at Goodison Park in his first ever Merseyside derby.

Everton beat Liverpool 2-0 in what was a relatively convincing victory despite Jurgen Klopp’s men keeping 74% of the ball. Liverpool had no answers for many of the questions Everton asked.

Jarrad Branthwaite stood tall as he slotted the ball past a frantic Alisson who missed the shot as the ball squeezed under him, bounced off the post, and went over the goal line. This was in the 27th minute.

Liverpool had several opportunities to get an equalizer but found none. In the 58th minute, Everton added misery to the local rivals, this time through a Dominic Calvert-Lewin towering header, to put the home side 2-0 up.

The win solidifies Dyche’s men’s place in 16th as they face a relegation battle head on, while the Reds are left wondering if they can remedy this title charge as they sit in second place pending when Man City plays on Thursday, April 25.
