Liverpool vs Everton in the Premier League

This fixture has provided some memorable moments in Premier League history with famous goals and red cards a regular feature.

Everton 2-3 Liverpool, April 2001

In 1999, Liverpool beat Everton 3-2 at Anfield thanks to a thrilling final 10 minutes, but the result was relatively inconsequential as the Reds finished the season in seventh and Everton down in 14th.

Almost exactly two years on, another five-goal thriller went Liverpool’s way, and proved to be far more important.

Emile Heskey scored after only five minutes, and Markus Babbel restored the lead following Duncan Ferguson’s equaliser. Liverpool’s Igor Biscan received a second yellow card with 13 minutes left and, after David Unsworth equalised for the Toffees, it seemed a home win was the more likely outcome. That was until Gary McAllister’s 94th-minute free-kick made it 3-2, sealing a victory that helped Liverpool end the season by qualifying for the Champions League for the first time since its rebranding from the European Cup in 1992.

Everton 3-3 Liverpool, November 2013

Everton earned themselves a reputation for being ready to battle with Liverpool under David Moyes, but Roberto Martinez’s first derby, in November 2013, saw a more attacking side to the Blues.

With the game tied at 2-2 heading into the final 10 minutes, there was to be frantic and decisive twist at both ends of Goodison Park.

Romelu Lukaku’s towering header initially put Everton in front in the 82nd minute before Daniel Sturridge snatched a point for Liverpool in the closing moments.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton, December 2018

A result that turned on a moment of ecstasy and agony in equal measure as Everton conceded an added-time derby goal for the second time in three seasons.

Sadio Mane secured a 1-0 victory at Goodison Park in 2016 in dramatic fashion, but Everton were to be the architects of their own downfall at Anfield two years later.

After a disciplined and solid display by Marco Silva’s side, a calamitous error from Jordan Pickford was pounced on by derby cult hero Divock Origi to steal the win deep into injury time.

Liverpool 0-2 Everton, February 2021

A huge section of Everton fans had never witnessed a Premier League win at Anfield prior to 2021, with the name Kevin Campbell etched onto the minds of the Toffees faithful.

Campbell’s winner in a 1-0 away victory over Liverpool in 1999 opened up a yawning gap until Everton would win again on the other side of Stanley Park.

The pandemic-impacted 2020/21 season was a strange time for Premier League football and the sight of Carlo Ancelotti on the Everton bench was another surreal chapter.

However, it was to b the nous of the veteran Italian that finally ended Everton’s misery at the home of their city rivals, as Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late penalty secured a 2-0 win.
