The Premier League is the most competitive tournament in Europe, where the most exciting matches are played every week and with the rhythm that only the English league can offer. This Sunday in the Derby of Merseyside, Liverpool and Everton were facing plagued by ex Barça players.
The game was exciting from the beginning to the end, with a first part much more even than the second, where there were occasions for both teams but none could score. The second half was one color. The Reds dominated, but their players showed little success when it came to defining. The trident that last season led to Liverpool until the Champions League final is currently far from its best. Mohamed Salah was very active, but he is always missing a hundredth of a second to decide and score as he did the previous season. Jürgen Klopp replaced him in the 75 ‘to give entry to Daniel Sturridge. Also, Mané, who had several occasions, was inaccurate in his shots and Firmino replaced by the one who ended up being a hero of the game, was the victim of the good performance of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
When everyone thought they would split points in Anfield. With the time already fulfilled, Liverpool hung a foul in the area, Virgil Van Dijk ended in a faulty way, to Liverpool’s sky. Then the ball fell on the crossbar of the goal defended by Pickford, who missed the clearance. The strange effect of the ball made it return to the field where was Origi to take advantage and give the goal of victory to his team.
An incredible goal.1-0, party in Anfield and the ‘red’ team obtained the three points, with which they are maintained in the fight for the Premier League. The Klopp’s are two points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. A very cruel outcome for Everton, that played a great game.
