Report: Reds up to third with derby win

1st April 2017

Goals from Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi earned Liverpool a 3-1 Merseyside derby victory over Everton at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Brilliant individual efforts from Mane and Coutinho in the first half, along with Origi’s powerful strike on the hour mark, saw the Reds move up to third in the Premier League by completing the double over their neighbours this season.

Everton had briefly drawn level through Matthew Pennington following Mane’s early opener, but Coutinho responded immediately to make sure the hosts went in ahead at the interval.

Mane was forced off with an apparent ankle injury soon after half-time – however, Origi, the No.19’s replacement, sealed all three points for Liverpool with a fine finish just minutes after coming on.

The key points…

  • Mane gave Liverpool an early lead.
  • Pennington equalised in the 28th minute.
  • But Coutinho restored the Reds’ advantage almost immediately.
  • Origi, on for the injured Mane, made it 3-1 on the hour.
  • Victory lifted Liverpool into third in the Premier League.

The team news…

Jürgen Klopp made two changes to his starting line-up from the 1-1 draw with Manchester City a fortnight ago, with Lucas Leiva and Dejan Lovren coming in for Adam Lallana and Ragnar Klavan.
