“Another derby double!” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Everton

Liverpool came out victorious against their city rivals yet again on Saturday lunch-time as they produced a dramatic display to beat Everton 3-1 at Anfield.

Liverpool 3-1 Everton

Premier League, Anfield
April 01, 2017

Goals: Mane 7′, Coutinho 32′, Origi 60′; Pennington 28′

Liverpool have proven they are the strongest side on Merseyside this season after recording their second victory against Everton in 2016-17.

Sadio Mane was the hero at Goodison Park and he opened the scoring this time around too with a terrific individual run from midfield after just seven minutes.

It sparked confidence in Liverpool and they began to press for a second but it was Everton who responded next with a goal against the run of play in the 28th minute.

The scores weren’t level for long as Philippe Coutinho produced a sensational strike just four minutes later to put Liverpool back front again.

Following an intense first half, the teams came out firing again and there were a number of feisty tackles from Ross Barkley, Ashley Williams and Emre Can.

Mane appeared to suffer a nasty injury following one of these but Divock Origi healed Liverpool’s wound with a terrific goal within just three minutes of his introduction.

The Reds searched for a fourth while Everton prodded the Anfield defence but Liverpool were able to hold on to secure a 3-1 victory.
