Soccer: Liverpool dominate the Merseyside derby


Liverpool FC clearly won the Merseyside derby at Everton FC and beat local rivals 4-1 on Wednesday evening. The “Reds” remain third in the Premier League because Chelsea and Manchester City have also won their games. Chelsea defended their first place with a 2-1 win at Watford FC. The table runner-up ManCity won 2-1 at Aston Villa.

Liverpool celebrated the victory mainly thanks to the outstanding double goalscorer Mohammed Salah (19th, 64th). Jordan Henderson (9th) and Diogo Jota (79th) also met at Goodison Park for Jürgen Klopp’s team. The interim connection goal for Everton, who is trained by the former Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez, scored Demarai Gray (38th). The troubled “toffees” were booed by their own fans after the final whistle.

Chelsea won at Watford after the game was interrupted after 13 minutes due to a medical emergency. When the score was 0-0, a spectator had suffered a cardiac arrest. He was taken to a hospital and stabilized. After half an hour the game was continued. Mason Mount (29th) and Hakim Ziyech (72nd) scored for the “Blues”. Emmanuel Dennis (43.) achieved the interim equalization for the hosts, where ÖFB team goal Daniel Bachmann was in goal.

City wins, draw for Southampton

ManCity struggled to win against Aston Villa, which had strengthened under new coach Steven Gerrard. Ruben Dias (27th) and Bernardo Silva (43rd) scored the goals for the “Citizens” away at Villa Park, where Ilkay Gündogan and Kevin de Bruyne, who was not quite fit after a CoV infection, were not in the squad. The intermediate equalizer for Villa was achieved by Ollie Watkins (47th).

There was also an emergency among the spectators at the match between Southampton and Leicester City. The two teams returned from the dressing rooms about 15 minutes later after the half-time break. The officials confirmed that the paramedics had been deployed in the stands. Details were not known for the time being. Southampton, coach Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team, had led 2-1 at the break. After more than 90 minutes there was a 2-2, which did not help the “Saints” with the goal of leaving the lower part of the table.
