Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
That win means Liverpool are just one point behind league leaders Manchester City again. Their attention now turns to their Champions League semi-final first leg against Villarreal on Wednesday. Everton stay in the relegation zone, two points from safety with a game in hand over Burnley. It's another tough test for them next time out as they host Chelsea.
Liverpool pile the pressure on Everton with a 2-0 win in the Merseyside derby. There wasn't much to shout about in the first half, though Doucoure came closest when he dragged a shot wide. Liverpool upped the pressure after the break and Robertson broke the deadlock with a close-range header. Gray almost pulled Everton level but fired his shot just wide of the top corner. Origi came off the bench to wrap it up when he thumped a header over Pickford into the roof of the net.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: LIVERPOOL 2-0 EVERTON.
90' + 3' Everton are making a late push for a consolation goal, but Mykolenko runs into Van Dijk when he cuts inside from the left. Liverpool break on the counter, but Robertson can't get it out of his feet to have a shot from the edge of the box.
Richarlison
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Richarlison is bundled over by Henderson, and in his frustration, he kicks the midfielder's leg out from under him. It's an unnecessary foul and he's also shown a yellow card.
D. Alli
Yellow Card
89' Alli is trying to block Henderson's switch of play and ends up catching him on the shin. He picks up a late booking.
87' Everton aren't giving up yet and Richarlison is chasing down another long ball from Doucoure. He's asking too much of the Brazilian though and Liverpool end up with a throw-in.
L. Díaz
Assist
85' It would've been a brilliant goal from Diaz if he'd managed to get it on target, but it ended up being a good set-up for Origi instead.
D. Origi
Goal
85' ORIGI SCORES! Robertson's corner is over everyone, but Henderson recycles it on the far side. Diaz goes for the spectacular with a bicycle kick, and it bounces back across goal. Origi is waiting at the far post and he heads it over the scrambling Pickford and into the roof of the net. 2-0 Liverpool!
84' GOOD SAVE! Henderson lifts it over the top for Salah, who squares it to the edge of the box from the right. Thiago runs onto it, hitting it first time, and a deflection off Holgate makes it awkward for Pickford, but he does well to push it wide.
J. Henderson
Diogo Jota
82' Final change for Liverpool now and it's Jota that's going off for Henderson.
81' Salah plays another clever one-two with Origi on the edge of the box before fizzing a dangerous cross into the six-yard box. Holgate slices at it and luckily for him, it bounces straight to Pickford.
79' Everton are really upping the pressure now and Alli takes it around Alexander-Arnold before pulling it back to Iwobi from the byline. Alisson is beaten, but Robertson gets there ahead of the forward to hook it away.
S. Rondón
D. Gray
77' Second change for Everton as they continue to look for an equaliser. Gray is taken off, with Rondon on for him.
77' Origi makes a great run through the middle before playing a one-two with Salah to try and open up space in the box. He runs straight into Keane, going to ground, but the referee waves the claims away.
75' Everton have only won once against Liverpool in the Premier League when they've conceded first, with that victory coming in December 1992 (2-1) - they're winless in the last 31 games against the Reds when conceding first.
D. Alli
Allan
73' Everton are making their first change now, and it sees Alli coming on in place of Allan.
72' CLOSE! Gordon does brilliantly to hold off Matip before laying it off to Iwobi. He squares it to Gray just outside the D, and he rifles an effort towards the top corner, but it's just wide.
70' Diaz wrongfoots Coleman as he cuts inside from the left again, and he decides to go for goal himself. He's trying to pick out the near post, but it's blocked for a corner, which comes to nothing.
68' Everton just can't get out at the moment and Alexander-Arnold is starting to get a lot of joy down the right. He clips another good cross into the middle, but Origi flicks his header wide.
Allan
Yellow Card
66' Allan wasn't happy with something following that Liverpool attack, and he's booked for dissent after protesting to the referee.
66' OFF THE LINE! Pickford comes out a long way to punch Alexander-Arnold#s cross away, but it goes straight back to the defender. He picks out Matip with his second attempt, but Allan blocks his effort on the line. It reaches Salah on the edge of the box, but he fires over.
64' It's a lovely first touch from Diaz and he knocks it past Coleman before putting a teasing cross into the near post. There's a bit of a scramble from everyone to reach it and eventually it's put out for a corner.
Mohamed Salah
Assist
62' Salah has a quick glance up after laying it off to Origi and picks out Robertson's run with a great cross.
A. Robertson
Goal
62' ROBERTSON SCORES! Salah plays a one-two with Origi down the right to get away from Gordon before he curls a lovely cross into the far post. None of the Everton players spot Robertson's run, and he nods his header down into the ground and past Pickford. 1-0 Liverpool!
L. Díaz
S. Mané
60' Mane is the other player making way, with Diaz on in his place.
D. Origi
N. Keïta
60' Liverpool are making a double change here as they continue to search for a breakthrough. Keita is the first to go off, with Origi on for him.
59' Alexander-Arnold's cross is flicked on by Keita before Coleman scuffs it away. He only gets it as far as Robertson, who drills a low shot on goal, but Coleman sticks out a leg to block it.
T. Alexander-Arnold
Yellow Card
58' Gordon breaks forward from a Liverpool corner and Alexander-Arnold sprints from the centre circle across to him. He slides in, but Gordon has already knocked the ball past him, and he's booked for the late tackle.
56' GREAT CHANCE! Iwobi lifts it over Matip to pick out Gordon down the left of the box, and he has a go from a tight angle. He hits a low shot across goal but it rolls wide of the far post.
54' Iwobi bursts forward again, and this time, he has Gordon ahead of him in support. He gets a nudge in the back from Matip and he goes down under the pressure, but the referee only points for a goal-kick.
52' Allan sends a hopeful clearance upfield and Iwobi sprints onto it before going up against Matip. In the end, the defender wins the duel by taking it off his toe as he tries to set himself for a shot.
50' It's all Liverpool at the start of the second half and they're pushing forward again here. Fabinho switches it out to Salah, who plays a clever reverse pass into Alexander-Arnold, but his chipped cross is straight into Pickford's gloves.
48' Robertson's corner is cleared by Holgate at the near post, but he only gets it as far as Keita just outside the box. He lets it bounce before firing a shot on goal, but it sails high and wide of the top corner.
46' Liverpool get us back underway for the second half!
Everton have done well to stifle Liverpool's attacking threat, and Klopp was a frustrated figure on the touchline. The Reds have dominated everywhere else on the pitch, but couldn't test Pickford. Everton's game plan is working to perfection so far, and Lampard will be hoping they can keep this up to collect a much-needed point.
It's goalless at the break between Liverpool and Everton. Neither side has managed a shot on target so far in the game, though they've created a couple of good chances. Everton arguably had the best one when Richarlison slid in Doucoure, but the midfielder dragged it wide. At the other end, Salah and Mane both fired over with shots from range, while Jota volleyed one wide.
45' + 5' HALF-TIME: LIVERPOOL 0-0 EVERTON.
45' + 4' Mane gets the better of Coleman down the left before clipping a cross into Keita at the near post. It's just too high for him and Holgate helps it back to Pickford.
S. Mané
Yellow Card
45' + 1' In the middle of all of that, Mane was also booked for his reaction to the challenge on Fabinho.
A. Doucouré
Yellow Card
45' Doucoure tried to tug back Fabinho, but the Brazilian shrugged him off before Doucoure tripped him, and he's shown a yellow card.
45' Richarlison has been on the ground for quite a while, but the referee allowed Liverpool to continue play. When Doucoure clips Fabinho with a late challenge, both sets of players swarm around the referee with protests.
44' CHANCE! Matip switches it out to Salah, and he plays a one-two with Keita so he can get into the box. He takes the shot first time when it comes back to him, but his effort curls high over the bar.
42' After clearing Alexander-Arnold's corner, Richarlison starts to push forward before going to ground. The medical team are on to see him, and he's able to carry on after treatment.
40' Salah weaves his way in from the right before lifting a good cross to Jota. He gets the ball caught under his feet, allowing Mykolenko to get across, but he ends up giving away a corner.
38' Liverpool have scored first in 12 of their previous 14 home games against Everton in the Premier League, although the Toffees did so in this fixture last season.
36' Salah gets the better of Mykolenko this time, and he pulls it back to Fabinho on the edge of the box before continuing his run into the area. Everton have flooded bodies back though, and Keane blocks the return pass.
34' GREAT CHANCE! Richarlison nicks the ball off Thiago before driving forward down the right. He threads it through to Doucoure, who has a go from the right of the box, but he ends up dragging his effort wide of the far post.
32' CHANCE! Robertson knocks it past Coleman before whipping his cross back to Jota. He takes the short first time but ends up volleying it wide of the near post.
30' Liverpool are starting to find their rhythm now and they've won another corner. Alexander-Arnold's cross bounces around in the box, but Allan gets to it just ahead of Van Dijk to stop him from having a tap-in.
28' Robertson swings the resulting free-kick into the box and it's just too high for Van Dijk. Holgate is behind him and manages to flick it away from the crowd at the far post at the expense of a corner, which comes to nothing.
27' Tempers are just starting to boil over here after a coming together between Jota and Coleman. The defender tugged him back and Jota tried to push him off, and the referee pulls them both over for a word.
A. Gordon
Yellow Card
25' Gordon has gone down in the box after trying to skip past Keita. Everton fans and players are asking for a penalty, but instead, Gordon is booked for diving.
23' Richarlison wins the first corner of the game for Everton and Gordon swings it in. It's over Keane at the near post, and Van Dijk is behind him to clear the danger.
21' CHANCE! After patiently passing it around in front of Everton, Mane finds a pocket of space after turning past Allan. He hits the shot on the half-turn, but it loops over the bar and into the stands.
19' Robertson pulls it back for Thiago and he loops a very deep cross towards Salah at the far post. Pickford reads it well and comes off his line to collect it.
17' Doucoure slides a good pass down the left for Gordon this time, and he's in a foot race against Alexander-Arnold. The forward gets to it first before toppling over, but the free-kick he's asking for isn't given.
15' It's a lovely throughball from Iwobi to Gray, and he manages to lose Van Dijk by checking back. He drags it around three Liverpool defenders before hitting a shot from the edge of the box, but it's blocked by Matip.
13' Salah leaves Gordon on the floor after a quick drop of the shoulder, but there's no way past Mykolenko. He manages to shrug off the defender but gives away a free-kick in the process.
11' Everton have lost 10 of their last 11 Premier League away games (D1), including each of the last six in a row. It's their longest run of consecutive away defeats since a run of eight between April and October 1994.
9' Fabinho plays a one-two with Salah down the right, and the space opens up for him. He takes a heavy touch when he tries to control the return pass though and Holgate gets across to hook it clear.
7' Keita's switch of play is cut out by Gray, and he spins away from Thiago before drilling a throughball into the box. Richarlison, who looked to be offside anyway, can't reach it on the stretch, and Alisson collects it.
5' Gray steps up to take the free-kick, but he hits it straight against the wall. Iwobi tries to keep the attack alive but ends up losing out to Fabinho.
4' Alexander-Arnold is hurried into a clearance by Gordon and he brings it down before driving at Liverpool's defence. He skips past Fabinho before being tripped by Thiago, and the visitors have a free-kick through the middle.
2' It's all Liverpool in the opening minutes here and it's spread out to Alexander-Arnold on the right. He slides it through for Salah, but he ends up tugging Gordon back so he can cut inside.
1' Allan gets the game underway for Everton!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
Liverpool (76) and Everton (29) are separated by 47 points in the Premier League table, the largest ever gap between the two sides when facing one another in league competition.
Frank Lampard makes three changes after their late draw against Leicester City last time out, with Holgate and Doucoure coming in. Ben Godfrey was supposed to start, but after picking up an injury in the warm-up, Keane replaces him. Delph starts on the bench, while Yerry Mina is rested after his return from injury last time out.
Jurgen Klopp makes just two changes to the side that beat Manchester United on Tuesday, bringing Jota and Keita into the team. They replace Henderson and Diaz, who both drop to the bench.
EVERTON SUBS: Jonjoe Kenny, Anwar El Ghazi, Asmir Begovic, Fabian Delph, Dele Alli, Isaac Price, Salomon Rondon, Jarrad Branthwaite.
EVERTON STARTING XI (4-3-3): Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Vitalii Mykolenko; Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, Alex Iwobi; Anthony Gordon, Richarlison, Demarai Gray.
LIVERPOOL SUBS: Divock Origi, Ibrahima Konate, Caoimhin Kelleher, Joe Gomez, Luis Diaz, Curtis Jones, Jordan Henderson, Kostas Tsimikas, James Milner.
LIVERPOOL STARTING XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Naby Keita; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane.
Liverpool have the chance to close the gap at the top of the table to one point again with a win here, after Manchester City's 5-1 victory over Watford yesterday. The Reds are yet to lose a league game in 2022, going unbeaten in their last 13 matches in the Premier League (W11 D2). Everton have dropped into the relegation zone due to Burnley's win earlier, and only a victory here will lift them back out. They've picked up four points from their last two outings after winning just one of the seven games before that (L6).
