"I would pick both" - Salah on choosing to win the Premier League and UCL

Liverpool secured a comprehensive Merseyside derby win against Everton on Wednesday evening, firing four impressive goals past the Toffees at Goodison Park as Rafael Benitez suffered a tough night against his old club.

Jordan Henderson got the scoring under way with a firm first-time finish from the edge of the area inside the first 10 minutes, before going on to produce a stellar performance. Mohamed Salah doubled the visitors’ lead at the end of a thrilling counter-attack, but Demarai Gray would pull one back for Everton later in the first half, slotting a calm finish under Alisson.

Salah sealed his brace after the break, however, pouncing on a terrible error by Seamus Coleman to run through on goal and tuck a low shot past Jordan Pickford – who, despite the eventual scoreline, impressed with numerous top saves throughout the game. Diogo Jota would round out the scoring as the final 10 minutes approached, turning his man with an inventive first touch before slamming a finish high into the Everton net. The result kept Jurgen Klopp’s third-placed Liverpool one point behind second Manchester City and two points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea – with City and the Blues both also winning on Wednesday night.

Liverpool run riot in Merseyside derby on torturous night for Everton and Rafael Benitez

The nightmare scenario happened for the home supporters and it was far more searing than they could’ve ever envisioned. There were 21 minutes on the clock when Rafael Benitez had his name sung at Goodison Park as Everton manager for the first time, but the 2,902 voices belonged to Liverpool’s gloating section.

The scoreboard read to the title contenders then. The Spaniard would be serenaded by more chants when his team had two more goals smashed past them to compound their overwhelming misery of an eight match winless run.

Everton 1 - 4 Liverpool

There’s no changes at the top of the Premier League table as Chelsea (33), Manchester City (32) and Liverpool (31) all won tonight. That means just two points separate the top three teams.

Everton meanwhile continue to struggle. They’ve picked up just two points from from a possible 24 in the league. They’re still 14th in the table but will get drawn into a relegation battle unless they can pick up some points soon.
