Liverpool v Everton player ratings: One to forget for Salah, Firmino and Mane, while Keane and Richarlison impress

It's now Liverpool's worst home league run since 1923 after 2-0 defeat

Everton deepened Liverpool's Premier League troubles by winning at Anfield for the first time since 1999, a 2-0 triumph that consigned the champions to a fourth successive home defeat.

It's Liverpool's worst home league run since 1923 and leaves Jurgen Klopp's side 16 points behind leader Manchester City and with Everton only behind on goal difference with a game in hand.

Everton's intention was clear from the start to get the ball forward and put the inexperienced Liverpool central defensive partnership of Jordan Henderson and Ozan Kabak under pressure.

It paid off after just two minutes and 25 seconds as Kabak's weak headed clearance fell to James Rodriguez, who slipped in a pass behind the on-loan Schalke centre-back. Richarlison ran on to fire an angled drive across goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Hopes of a comeback were thwarted by Trent Alexander-Arnold bringing down substitute Calvert-Lewin and Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring from a penalty in the 83rd minute.
