Liverpool Dominate Merseyside Derby

Premier League
 
Result: Liverpool 4-0 Everton
 
Date: 20 April 2016
 
Venue: Anfield
 
Liverpool cruised to three points in the Premier League with a 4-0 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday.
 
The visiting goalkeeper was tested in the sixth minute already as Oviedo's sliced clearance fell for Coutinho who released Adam Lallana. He looked set to beat Robles, but the gloveman made a great stop.
 
Sakho proved his worth in the Liverpool defence in the 23rd minute when Romelu Lukaku powered towards the six-yard area only to be tackled with great determination by the Reds defender.
 
Lallana should have put the hosts in front shortly thereafter as Clyne sniped down the right wing before crossing towards him, but he sent his header wide of the post.
 
The game looked set to go into the half goalless, but Divock Origi had other ideas as he netted the opening goal in the 43rd minute to put Liverpool ahead. James Milner found him with a cross and he beat John Stones to the ball.
 
On the stroke of half-time Jurgen Klopp's side were two goals clear. A clearance from Everton came to Milner who drove towards the byline before cutting it back for Mamadou Sakho to head home from close range.
 
The Toffees' chances of getting something out of the game was given a hefty blow five minutes into the second half as they were reduced to 10 men. Jose Mori lunged into Origi and was shown a questionable straight red card.
 
Liverpool took advantage of their superior numbers just past the hour mark to extend their lead to three goals. Stones gave possession away cheaply to Lucas who thread it through for Daniel Sturridge to finish with precision.
 
The victory was capped off with a fourth strike as Coutinho found the back of the Everton net. The Brazilian received the ball on the edge of the area and curled home a low finish.
 
Sturridge nearly made it five in stoppage time but he hit the Everton woodwork with his lobbed effort.
