Liverpool, in free fall: already out of Europe

Richarlison opened the scoring for Everton, taking advantage of a great pass from James Rodríguez. Sigurdsson, from a penalty, closed the contest.


Four consecutive league defeats at Anfield for the first time since 1923. The last of them, to top it off, in a city derby against Everton (0-2). The first triumph of the 'toffees' in rival territory since 1999 has ended a 22-year streak without winning there and maintains the fall of Liverpool, which has no brake on its bad run of results and that forces Klopp's to reformulate its objectives for the remainder of the season: the fight for a long time is not to defend the title -16 points from Manchester City with one more game-, but to enter the Champions League positions, already three points behind. distance and tied with Everton.

What Richarlison opened in the second minute of the game, taking advantage of a great pass from James Rodríguez, was closed by Sigurdsson with a penalty in the second half, a maximum penalty caused by Calvert-Lewin, just off the field. Ancelotti's men knew how to defend themselves in their field since they took advantage on the scoreboard, thanks to an excellent work from their defenders, as well as Pickford, the savior on several occasions of Salah, Wijnaldum and Henderson.

Minutes later, the Liverpool captain was the last to join the injured list. Henderson had to retire in the first half and joins Van Dijk, Gomez, Matip, all of them central, as well as Fabinho, Milner or Jota. From that moment on, the 'red' rear consisted of Kabak and Phillips, the 18th center-back pair this season for Jürgen Klopp.

Fulham clinging to salvation

Fulham beat bottom-side Sheffield United 1-0 and clings to Newcastle's permanence in the Premier League, with three points above but one game less.

Scott Parker's team is in good shape and extended it against Sheffield, who only have eleven points in the twenty-five games they have played.

Fulham was enough with a goal from Ademola Lookman at game time to leave Craven Cottage with the victory and raise their streak of games to four without losing.

Two draws and two wins lift the outlook for Fulham, who cling to salvation as their rival sinks.
