Liverpool 0: 2 Everton. Ancelotti’s effect is evident.
Another match was held under the auspices of the English Premier League. The central controversy of the tour took place at Anfield. In the “Merseyside” derby, Liverpool hosted Everton.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team scored two unanswered goals for Jürgen Klopp. This means that Everton won at Anfield for the first time since 1999.
Richarlison and Sigurdsson showed themselves with the goals scored in this historic match. Liverpool and Everton have 40-40 points at the moment, but Ancelotti’s team has played one game less, which shows their advantage. It is noteworthy that the “Reds” lost the fourth match in a row in the Premier League. In three of them, they lost at “Anfield”.
The current champions of England are 16 points behind the current leader of the draw – Manchester City, and the “Cityzens” have a +1 match in the reserve.
Have Liverpool ever lost 4 home games in a row?
The 68-match unbeaten streak at Anfield has now turned into a 4-match losing streak.
“Liverpool” lost 4 home games in a row in the Premier League and also scored only 1 goal in these 4 matches – with a penalty against “Man. City”. The rest of the losses were distributed as follows:
0-1 with Burnley, 0-1 with Brighton, 1-4 with City and 0-2 with Everton.
Interestingly, “Liverpool” lost 4 matches in a row at home for the first time since December 1923.
In addition, the team became the first reigning champion since the 1928/29 season to lose four times in a row within its own walls. Then “Everton” “managed” it.
The incredible difference – how many points did Liverpool have at this stage of the season last year?
The current season is incredibly different for Liverpool.
For comparison, in the same period of the previous season, i.e. after 25 rounds, “Liverpool” had an incredible 73 points, and the team was 22 (!!) points ahead of the nearest follower “Man. City”. However, “City” had less than one match; it must be said.
As we can see, this season “Liverpool” took no more, no less than 33 points after 25 rounds, which was reflected in the tournament table – if last year the team was practically the champion, now it is fighting to get into the Champions League zone and so far, it is not so successful, For it is in the sixth place.
