Here Isagoal.com evaluates the talking points as Liverpool trounced Rafael Benitez’s men 1-4 at the Goodison Park.
Liverpool affirm dominance
The Reds used the match to reinstate their superiority over their Merseyside counterpart Everton in this match.
It was a convincing outing for the Reds who scored four times against the Toffees just like they did trounce Southampton at Anfield last weekend with four goals.
And they showed no mercy with the way they were ruthless in front of goal. It ensured that Gray’s brilliant goal was only but consolation in the Everton/Liverpool game.
Salah is back on the score sheet
The Liverpool hitman found the back of the net in a scintillating fashion as he scored in each half to brighten his sides’ advantage.
He’s been very effective going forward as he combined well with Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota in the final third.
And it was only a matter of time for him to hit the back of the goal in the Merseyside derby as was widely expected of him in the highly entertaining contest.
He stole the ball in Everton custody, race through the opposition area before finishing superbly to complete his brace in style.
The Egyptian star would be key to his sides season agenda as they look forward to the next game in the English topflight.
