Liverpool maintain a strong 32 Premier League run without defeat as they put Everton coach Marco Silva’s job along the line after a 5-2 victory at Anfield that landed the Toffees into the relegation zone.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who had to deal with the absence of suspended goalkeeper Alisson and injured Fabinho, still felt able to rest key attacking duo Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino from his starting line-up and win in comfort.
Sadio Mane aided the Everton trashing with two early goals of a total four first half Liverpool lead for Divock Origi and the recalled Xherdan Shaqiri.
Michael Keane strike one comfort for shambolic Everton but Liverpool wasted no time in taking back control when Origi controlled Dejan Lovren’s pass for a stunning third and Mane got the goal he deserved when he crowned a sweeping counter-attack from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s inviting delivery.
Richarlison saw a deserving leak of Liverpool’s own vulnerable defending to establish a 4-2 on the stroke of half-time but the truth remains that Everton were never looking to beat the Premier League title hungry Reds.
Second half saw both Liverpool and Everton missing opportunities to increase the match goal in the second half, with Sadio Mane and Everton substitute Moise Kean culprits. Finally, Jurgen Klopp side wrapped up the Silva humiliation with Georginio Wijnaldum’s low shot for the fifth in the final minute of normal time.
The Everton coach Silva, 42, is suffering a slow, lingering demise as Everton coach and this could fasten his sack from Goodison Park.
While, Liverpool maintain a strong determination to end a long Premier League title drought.
