    Carlo Ancelotti hailed for ‘tactical victory’ over Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as Everton claim win at Anfield for first time since 1999

    Carlo Ancelotti was hailed for a ‘tactical victory’ over rival Jurgen Klopp as Everton claimed a monumental 2-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield.

    An early Richarlison goal and Gylfi Sigurdsson’s second-half penalty ended a wretched 22-year wait for victory at their rivals’ home.

    It meant so much to the Everton players at the end, who will party like it’s 1999

    But Liverpool’s title-winning party from last season is coming to a dour end

    The result also brings up an embarrassing stat for the champions, who have lost four league home matches for the first time since 1923.

    It puts Everton level on points with Liverpool and Ancelotti’s men have played a match less.

    Sloppy Liverpool created many chances but were thwarted by the likes of Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane.

    They’ll also be sweating on the fitness of Jordan Henderson, who hobbled off in the first half holding both his hamstrings and groin on a night where just about everything that could have gone wrong for Liverpool did.

    Liverpool have plenty of problems so an injury to the club captain is the last thing they need

    But full marks must go to Everton, who set up perfectly with talkSPORT’s Sam Matterface labelling it a ‘tactical victory’ for Ancelotti.

    Ancelotti will be full of praise for his players though, particularly Pickford, who made a number of great saves, including a Henderson volley in the first half and a close range effort to deny Mohamed Salah in the second.

    Pickford’s opposite number Alisson kept out a point-blank header from Seamus Coleman but could do nothing about Richarlison’s opener.

    The Brazilian got goalside of Ozan Kabak as he latched onto James Rodriguez’s incisive pass before confidently drilling the ball home.

    THE RECORD

    Liverpool wins: 93

    Everton wins: 67


    Liverpool upped the ante after the break but couldn’t break through. Keane and Mason Holgate made brilliant last-ditch clearances to deny the lively Sadio Mane.

    Everton then got their second as Sigurdsson stroked the ball in from 12 yards out. The awarding of the spot-kick was controversial with Alexander-Arnold penalised for bringing down Dominic Calvert-Lewin, despite not knowing much about it.

    Referee Chris Kavanagh was advised to look at the incident again on his pitchside monitor but barely glanced at the screen as he stuck to his guns, something that didn’t sit well with Steve McMahon.

    He said on commentary for talkSPORT: “He’s taken no notice at the monitor at all, but that’s what it’s there for. VAR is failing in so many ways!”

    There was clear contact but Alexander-Arnold had his back to Calvert-Lewin and couldn’t have done anything to get out the way
