Video: Liverpool’s top 10 Merseyside derbies at Goodison Park

Goodison Park has played host to a number of memorable Merseyside derby clashes over the years, with Liverpool regularly getting the better of rivals Everton.

The Reds take to Goodison on Monday night for Jurgen Klopp‘s first away derby, with his only previous experience of the Toffees’ home stadium coming from the movie Creed.

Klopp addressed the weight of expectation across the city before the game, and this is fuelled by the fierce history of the fixture.

Ahead of Liverpool’s trip across Stanley Park, the club released their top 10 of Merseyside derbies at Goodison since the Premier League began in 1992, serving as a reminder of the excellent results enjoyed in the past.

This includes the 3-1 win from September 2001, with Steven Gerrard, still wearing the No. 17 shirt, scoring a powerful effort and goading the Everton supporters in celebration.

December 2005 saw Gerrard set up Peter Crouch on the way to another 3-1 victory, while September 2008 was Fernando Torres’ time to shine, netting twice in a 2-0 triumph.

Onto another derby hero, a pair of Dirk Kuyt penalties cancelled out an own goal from Sami Hyypia in the 2-1 win in 2007.

The only draw included in Liverpool’s top 10 came in the 2013/14 campaign, when Daniel Sturridge‘s late header secured a 3-3 comeback, sending the travelling Kop into raptures.

Taking pride of place at No. 1, Gary McAllister’s remarkable long-range free-kick sealed a 3-2 victory at Goodison in 2001, which remains one of the most memorable Merseyside derbies in recent history.

Klopp will be hoping for his side to net another emphatic result on Monday night, as they look to continue their title challenge moving into 2017.
