Everton ended their Anfield curse yesterday, giving Liverpool a 2-0 loss to win a Merseyside derby away from home for the first time in 22 years.
Richarlison put the visitors ahead just four minutes into the game, and Gylfi Sigurdsson came off the bench to double his lead from the point in the last stretch.
Jordan Pickford was available to deny Liverpool with several good saves, and coach Carlo Ancelotti will dream of seeing Everton in Europe next season.

Well done guys @Everton ! The town is blue 💙💙
