Liverpool Trounce Everton 4-0 in Merseyside DerbyLatest News, Sports Thursday, April 21st, 2016
Liverpool added to the growing pressure on Everton manager Roberto Martinez with a 4-0 victory which was as embarrassing for the visitors as it was comfortable for the hosts in the 226th Merseyside derby.
Defender Ramiro Funes Mori also added to the Spaniard’s woes ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United with this fixture’s 21st red card in the last 47 Premier League encounters.
That was compounded by fellow centre-back John Stones limping off injured after the third goal went in. That was Daniel Sturridge’s 50th goal for the club and followed two headers from Divock Origi and Mamadou Sakho just before half-time.
Philippe Coutinho’s 76th-minute strike sent visiting fans heading for the exits and every ‘Ole’ which rang around Anfield towards the end was a dagger to the heart of Martinez and those who remained in the away end.
Sturridge, only on because Origi was carried off on a stretcher with a serious-looking ankle injury as a result of Funes Mori’s stamp.
