Premier League: Iwobi Subbed On, Helps Everton Claim First Win Vs Liverpool At Anfield In 22 Years

Premier League: Iwobi Subbed On, Helps Everton Claim First Win Vs Liverpool At Anfield In 22 Years (Updated: Sunday, 21st February 2021, 05:22 PM)


Alex Iwobi was introduced with less than 10 minutes left as Everton secured their first league win at Anfield in 1999 with a 2-0 win against Liverpool in Saturday’s Merseyside derby.

Goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson gave Everton a first win against the reigning Premier League champions since 2010.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have now suffered four straight home defeats for the first time since 1923.

Liverpool was struck with another injury setback as skipper Jordan Henderson went down holding his groin and had to be replaced by Nat Phillips.

Everton capitalized on a fast start in blustering conditions to snatch an early 1-0 lead inside three minutes through Richarlison who ran on to James Rodriguez’s defense-splitting pass before hitting a low shot beyond Alisson.

Everton almost took advantage of the defensive switch immediately when a cross from Lucas Digne picked out Seamus Coleman ghosting in at the far post but Alisson palmed it to safety.

And in the 83rd minute, Everton doubled their lead after Sigurdsson converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Dominic Calvert-Lewin by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The win took Everton to seventh position on 40 points, one place behind Liverpool.
