Liverpool earn emphatic victory over 10-man Everton

The Reds powered past their opponents to heap pressure on under-fire Roberto Martinez.


EVERTON WILL GO into their Wembley date with Man United on the back of a Merseyside derby hiding at Anfield that means Roberto Martinez’s men have now gone seven league games without victory.

After a one-sided first half, Liverpool struck twice in four minutes shortly before half-time as James Milner crossed for first Origi and then centre-back Mamadou Sakho to head home.

It was Belgian striker Origi’s fifth goal in five appearances, but he was stretchered off five minutes into the second half with a suspected ankle sprain following an ugly foul by Everton centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori, who was sent off.

Daniel Sturridge came on for Origi and found the net eight minutes later, tucking away Lucas Leiva’s pass, before Philippe Coutinho bent in a low shot from the edge of the box to complete the scoring in the 76th minute.

Liverpool climb to seventh place following tonight’s win.
