In the red sat the ball in his derby Merseyside! By Mohamed Salah to provide the solution with a penalty in the 75th minute and to add… icing on the cake in stoppage time, Liverpool prevailed 2-0 of Everton at “Anfield”, in the big game for their 9th matchday Premier League!
With this “three point” his team Jurgen Klopp “hit” the top, but, of course, with more matches than Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City. The first host Fulham on Monday night, the second away london derby with Chelsea today (21/10) at 19:30, while the third welcomes AEK’s opponent in the Europa League, Brighton, at 17:00.
In contrast, Everton remained on 7 points and bottom of the standings, just above the relegation zone. The “sweets”, however, gave everything against Liverpool, which was dominant of the match from the start, but he could not send the ball into Pickford’s net, even though he was playing with a player more than 37′ due to Ashley Young’s suspension with a second yellow card.
The solution, finally, was given by Salah a quarter before the completion of the 90′, “writing” 1-0 from 11 steps after Kin’s hand in the large area. Pawson – to one more bad refereeing in England- pointed out the offense, after seeing it at VAR.
From then on, Liverpool had phases, to “lock” the match, but either the final effort of their players was not good or Pickford was saying “no”. The second goal, however, finally came in stoppage time (90’+7′) again with the Egyptian, who, with a terrific placement after an assist by Nunes, made the final 2-0 and even reached the 201 goals in his career in the leagues he has played in, with 146 of them being in England alone.
Chimikas is keystruggled until the 62nd minute, with Núñez taking his place, in an attempt by Klopp to unlock the Everton defence, which he did.
