The Last Four Meetings Between Liverpool & Everton

The 2023-24 Premier League season is currently on hiatus to make way for international fixtures to take place but is set to return on October 21 — and is doing so with a bang. Liverpool are hosting local rivals Everton at Anfield in the 12:30 kick-off before Chelsea take on London counterparts Arsenal at Stamford Bridge at 17:30.

It’s the Merseyside derby we are going to focus on in this article, however. There are 12 places separating Jurgen Klopp’s men from Sean Dyches’ side in the Premier League table, as the Reds are fourth and the Toffees are 16th. The Blue side of the city rarely celebrates a win on derby day either, so it’s no surprise the hosts are the heavy favourites in the Liverpool v Everton odds


So, as we count down the days to the first Merseyside derby of the season, let’s quickly recap the last four meetings between these two great sides. 


Liverpool 2-0 Everton

There may have been some tension amongst Liverpool fans prior to kick-off when these sides last met in February, as the Reds had lost three of their last four league matches while Everton had just recorded a monumental win over Arsenal. 


The Toffees came within a whisker of going in front when James Tarkowski outjumped Joel Matip to head an effort toward Allison’s goal. But the ball struck the post, and in a crazy state of affairs, Liverpool broke up the other end and Mohamed Salah rounded off the counterattack to make it 1-0. 


After lighting up the World Cup, Cody Gakpo largely failed to impress in his first few games as a Liverpool player. However, he quickly won over the Anfield faithful when he latched onto Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross at the back post to score his first goal for the club and make it 2-0.


Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Despite the match ending goalless at Goodison Park, both sides had a flurry of chances to try and nab a win — with Everton registering 14 goal attempts and Liverpool racking up 23. A frantic first half saw Tom Davies hit the post before the visitors went up the other end and struck the woodwork twice themselves. 


Nathan Patterson’s effort was deflected wide by Virgil van Dijk in the second half, while Jordan Pickford denied Roberto Firmino twice. Allison was also called into action a couple of times, but the biggest moment of the match came when boyhood Liverpool fan Conor Coady appeared to give Everton the lead — only for VAR to rule it out for offside. 


The post was rattled again when Salah’s effort was tipped onto it by Man of the Match Pickford, and the game ended goalless — meaning Everton went winless in their first six games for the first time in Premier League history while, Liverpool remained goalless on the road. 


Liverpool 2-0 Everton 

Another 2-0 win for the Reds, Liverpool were going toe-to-toe with Manchester City for the Premier League title when the sides met for this Merseyside derby in April 2022 — and Everton would have loved nothing more than to a be a thorn in the side of their city rivals. 


The Toffees did manage to frustrate Klopp’s men for the first hour of the game at Anfield, but Andy Robertson ultimately found the breakthrough when he headed home Salah’s cross. It wasn’t until the 85th minute that Liverpool managed to kill the tie completely, however. This time it was cult hero Divock Origi with the header to confirm Liverpool’s 12th successive league victory. 


Everton 1-4 Liverpool 

Earlier in the 2021-22 season, Liverpool delivered Everton their biggest Merseyside derby defeat at Goodison Park in 39 years. The 4-1 defeat also marked the Toffees’ worst run in the Premier League for 22 years.


Jordan Henderson and Salah fired the Reds two goals in front within the first 20 minutes, but Demarai Gray pulled one back to make it 2-1 at the break. Any hope of Everton salvaging something from the game was dashed when Salah restored Liverpool’s two-goal lead and Diogo Jota ended the rut to make it 4-1.
