The Match Recap:
With Diogo Jota sidelined due to injury and Cody Gakpo withdrawing from the squad for personal reasons, Liverpool’s attacking options were depleted. In contrast, Everton welcomed Ben Godfrey and James Garner into their lineup following a confidence-boosting victory over Nottingham Forest.

Buoyed by their recent success and fueled by a passionate home crowd, Everton started the match brightly. Abdoulaye Doucoure squandered an early chance before a penalty awarded against Alisson Becker was overturned due to an offside in the build-up.

However, Everton persisted, with Calvert-Lewin and Godfrey both missing headed opportunities before Branthwaite seized upon defensive chaos in the Liverpool box to open the scoring.

Despite Liverpool’s efforts to respond before halftime, their finishing lacked precision, with Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz failing to capitalize on promising chances.

The Reds appeared poised for a second-half resurgence, but Everton swiftly regained control, with Dwight McNeil and Calvert-Lewin both threatening Alisson’s goal.

Calvert-Lewin extended Everton’s lead with a well-placed header, effectively extinguishing any hope of a Liverpool comeback.

As the match wore on, Liverpool’s attacking impetus waned, and Everton comfortably saw out the game to secure a vital victory that all but secures their Premier League status for another season.
