FIRST HALF – Liverpool 1-0 Everton live: Mohamed Salah score and more updates ahead



Half time: Liverpool 1 Everton 0

Not a massive amount to say about that really. Liverpool had more of the ball, Everton did well for most of it. The goal the only moment of much note: Tarkowski hit the woodwork, Liverpool with a classic counter attack. If not a goalie error from Pickford, certainly a questionable decision, and Salah helped himself. Dyce will wonder nobody fouled to stop that break.

Chris Bascombe: “Sean Dyche would have been encouraged by Everton’s resolve until the moment James Tarkowski headed against the post. But Liverpool have shown more quality and played at the kind of tempo associated with a Klopp team,especially when Nunez is in full stride. Everton will have to show more adventure in the second half.”

Hardly any injury time but a rather soft foul from Everton gives Liverpool a nicely placed freekick. Lofted deep by Liverpool. Everton clear it by hook or by crook and that’s the end of the half.

“Going down, going down, going down,” suggest the home supporters. Tarkowski, who was within an inch of scoring a rare goal but now finds himself on the trailing side, vents his frustration on the person of Jordan Henderson. Ref gives him a final warning.


GOAL! Liverpool 1 Everton 0 (Salah 35)

… and Liverpool have gone straight up the other end and scored. It’s a superb, flowing move that sees Darwin N haring down the left flank, getting his head up and picking out Mo Salah who guides it with real class and authority past Pickford.

Pickford had certainly committed to the bit there. He was pretty much on the edge of the penalty area when Salah applied the finish. I think he thought Salah was going to send it onward to Gakpo, who was also running on. He reckoned without Salah, erm, going for goal. In fairness to Jordan Pickford, Liverpool did have like four players in a line and the nearest Everton defender about half a mile away so I guess he had to do something.

Heartbreak for Everton as they hit the woodwork from a set piece. Iwobi took a corner from the left, Tarkowski’s header thumped across the post…..

Everton have a corner, it’s likewise half cleared,  Idrissa Gueye catches the ball just lovely with a volley but it’s always (Three Feet) high and rising. RIP Trugoy.

Liverpool take that freekick, it’s half cleared to Bajcetic. He tries his luck from range but Pickford is equal to i
