Liverpool 3, Everton 1 Anfield, Liverpool (52,920) Liverpool scorers: Mane 8′, Coutinho 31′, Orgi 60′ Everton scorer: Pennington 28′  Simon Mignolet – 6 Had very little to do in the first half, so decided the join in the fun. No Everton player completed more take-ons than Simon Mignolet in the first half. pic.twitter.com/OPL5J3FCBY — Andrew Beasley (@BassTunedToRed) April 1, 2017 Made a couple of good saves in the second period, but Everton were so bad it was difficult for him to have a good game. Nathaniel Clyne – 6 Positionally decent, but nothing of note other than a good cross continue reading

Everton 1, Liverpool 1 - LFC Tactics & Player Ratings

Everton 1, Liverpool 1 Goodison Park, Liverpool (39,598) Liveprool Scorer: Ings 41′ Everton scorer: Lukaku 45′ *Simon Mignolet – 7.5 Made a couple of quality saves in the first half, one in particular from a Steven Naismith header which opposition manager Roberto Martinez described as “as good a save as you’ll see in the league.” Also saved from Lukaku later in the game, but occasionally irked his defenders by not coming to collect things. Emre Can – 5.5 Was at fault for the first goal, and struggled against Ross Barkley. Looks better when he steps out into midfield. Won four out of continue reading

Everton 0, Liverpool 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Everton 0, Liverpool 0 Goodison Park, Liverpool (39,621) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 6.5 Commanded his area well and made a good save towards the end of the game, as a Coleman shot deflected off Sakho on its way to him. Emre Can – 7 Coped well with Lukaku, but could have released the ball earlier on a few occasions. Martin Skrtel – 7 Swept up well and made some good clearing headers. Mamadou Sakho – 6 Good defensively, but uncharacteristically laboured in possession. *Jordon Ibe – 7 One of Liverpool’s brightest attackers, even with the likes of Coutinho, Sturridge and continue reading

Liverpool 1, Everton 1 - LFC Tactics & Player Ratings

Liverpool 1, Everton 1 Anfield, Liverpool (44,511) Liverpool scorers: Gerrard (65′) Everton scorer: Jagielka (90’+1) Tactics A slight change in formation saw Liverpool line up in what was something like 4-1-3-1-1 in attack, and often 4-4-1-1 in defence. Steven Gerrard was always the deepest of the midfielders, with the wide players and Henderson breaking forward into a three when the team had the ball. Lazar Markovic started on the right, with Raheem Sterling on the left, but they alternated positions in the second half. Adam Lallana played a prominent role in the side supporting Balotelli up front, before being moved wider continue reading

LFC Player Ratings & Tactics - Liverpool 4, Everton 0

Liverpool 4, Everton 0 Anfield, Liverpool, 28/01/2014 (Att: 44, 450) Liverpool scorers: Gerrard (21), Sturridge (33, 35), Suárez (50) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 6.5 Made some good stops throughout the game. Rarely catches but punches the ball clear on most occasions. Jon Flanagan – 6.5 A solid performance from the right back, looking more than at home in an important high profile game such as this. Gives as good as he gets in both attack and defence. Martin Skrtel – 6.5 Won most things in the air and performed his usual high number of clearances. Was playing with stitches in his continue reading

Liverpool Tactics & Player Ratings - Everton 3, Liverpool 3

Everton 3, Liverpool 3 Goodison Park, Liverpool (Att: 39,576) Liverpool scorers: Coutinho (5), Suárez (19), Sturridge (89) Player Ratings *Simon Mignolet – 8 Kept Liverpool in the game on numerous occasions with some great saves in one-on-one situations. Would have liked a more solid defence in front of him to help out. Glen Johnson – 5.5 Showed flashes of what he can do when at his best but looked off his game, in the second half especially. Seemed to lose concentration when building attacks, but made the odd good foray into the final third. Martin Skrtel – 5.5 Like Johnson, Skrtel continue reading

Everton v Liverpool - Player Ratings from The Merseyside Derby

Everton 2, Liverpool 2 Goodison Park, Liverpool (Att: 39,613) Liverpool scorers: Baines (og 14mins), Suarez (20mins) This was a Merseyside derby to make the city of Liverpool proud, but maybe one for the officials to forget. Everton and Liverpool fought to the end and Liverpool scored a winning goal at the end – only for it to be wrongly disallowed for an imaginary offside. The game will be remembered for many things, but the thing which will stick in the memory will be the performance of Luis Suarez and his comical celebration in front of David Moyes, who had previously continue reading
