Everton dent Liverpool’s title challenge with 2-nil victory in Merseyside derby


April 25, 2024

Everton secured their first win in a Merseyside derby last night at Goodison Park since 2010 beating Liverpool 2-nil.

The result leaves Liverpool’s Premier League title aspirations in ruins, as it keeps Jurgen Klopp’s men still three points adrift of leaders Arsenal and only one point in front of defending champions Manchester City, who have two games in hand.

The Reds have won just one of their last four league games and have also bowed out of the FA Cup and Europa League in recent weeks.

Elsewhere, Manchester United fought back to ensure a 4-2 victory against relegation-threatened Sheffield United at Old Trafford. A Jean-Philippe Mateta brace saw Crystal Palace beat Newcastle 2-nil to guarantee Premier League football for another season. And Antoine Semenyo scored the only goal as 10-man Bournemouth beat Wolves at Molineux to move into the top half of the Premier League table.
