Liverpool continue derby dominance as Mane and Coutinho down Everton

| 01.04.2017

Liverpool have given their top-four hopes a major boost after a fine 3-1 victory in the Merseyside derby versus Everton.

Watched on by James Bond himself – Daniel Craig – Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho had clearly been handed a licence to thrill.

The duo each bagged stunning first-half efforts, either side of an Everton leveller from Matthew Pennington.

A third goal from Divock Origi on the hour secured the points for the Anfield outfit.

It means Jurgen Klopp’s side take another three points towards a Champions League spot, safe in the knowledge that at least one of Arsenal or Manchester City must drop points on Sunday.

Here’s how it went down on Twitter…

And after bagging the winner in the reverse clash at Goodison Park, Mane took just eight minutes to punish Everton once more…

The Senegalese star went off injured in the second-half however…

Philippe Coutinho also shone, but it was a quiet day for Romelu Lukaku. For one very good reason…

And what it all means is that Klopp has become the first Liverpool manager to win his first three Merseyside derbies, while Everton must wait at least another season to land a first win at Anfield since 1999.
