On an epic night for the Red half of the city, goals from Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge (2) and Luis Suarez sank Roberto Martinez’s Toffees to their worst derby defeat in over 30 years.

It could well have been more too, but for some missed chances and Sturridge missing a second-half penalty which would have completed his hat-trick.

Around the ground, the atmosphere was superb — surely the best in several years, as a renewed optimism rang around Anfield.

That optimism and spirit was echoed in tweets before, during and after the match — fans buzzing from beating the local rivals so convincingly.
