"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.

79 mins: Oh my! James Milner sends the ball out to Andy Robertson on the left wing. He passes it into the box to Diogo Jota who leans on Allan before shifting the ball around the Everton midfielder to turn towards goal. He gets into space and blasts a left-footed strike past Jordan Pickford to seal the points for Liverpool!

Everton 1 - 3 Liverpool

78 mins: It looks like the former. Liverpool are passing the ball around comfortably despite the attempted press from Everton. A poor pass gives the home side the ball and it’s sent quickly up to Richarlison. He plays a blind first time pass across the front of the box hoping to play Gordon in behind Van Dijk but the Liverpool centre-back intercepts the pass and the attack breaks down.

67 mins: It’s going to be a difficult task for Everton now. Whilst there was only one goal between the teams they had a chance of getting something from the game but Liverpool won’t throw this lead away now.

GOAL! Everton 1 - 3 Liverpool (Salah, 64’)⚽️

64 mins: Andros Townsend hits the free kick and rattles his shot into the Liverpool wall winning a corner for Everton. Liverpool clear the set piece and the ball comes to Demarai Gray. He passes it back at an awkward height to Seamus Coleman who can’t bring the ball under control and he loses possession to a high pressing Mo Salah. Salah drives up the pitch, takes the ball into the box and slots it coolly under Jordan Pickford to restore Liverpool’s two goal lead.

Everton 1 - 2 Liverpool

62 mins: Good work from Michael Keane as he gets in front of Joel Matip to win the ball from an Andy Robertson corner. He heads it behind for a repeat set piece but Jordan Pickford comes out to meet the second cross and punches it out of the box.

Everton then fly up the pitch and look to play Anthony Gordon in through the middle of the box. Robertson comes across and sticks out a leg, there doesn’t seem to be an awful lot of contact but Gordon goes down just outside the area and Robertson is shown a yellow card.

59 mins: Everton sweep forward on the mini counter-attack. Doucoure sends the ball out to Gray on the right wing and he whips an early cross into the box. Richarlison seems to be the target but Alisson comes out and catches the ball right in front of the Brazilian’s head.

Salomon Rondon is replaced with Anthony Gordan for the Toffees.
