Salah Double Secures Liverpool 2-0 Win Against 10-Man Everton In Derby


Following Ashley Young’s dismissal for the visiting team in the first half, Mohamed Salah once again came to Liverpool’s aid as he scored two goals in the closing minutes of the match to lead the Reds to a 2-0 Premier League triumph over a resolute 10-man Everton at Anfield on Saturday.

In the 75th minute, after Michael Keane was given a penalty for a handball, Salah scored from the penalty spot to break the tie. Deep into stoppage time, he extended Liverpool’s lead with his 201st league goal.

Up until Salah’s early goal, Liverpool’s afternoon had been disappointing as they had failed to penetrate a stubborn Everton defense that had held firm after Young was sent off for a second yellow in the 37th minute.

In the opening Premier League match of the weekend, Juergen Klopp’s team moved up to the top of the rankings provisionally with 20 points, while Everton is now in 16th place.

“It’s a derby, and it will not decide how you end up on the table at the end of the season, but it has an impact like all the other games, but it’s much more tense, there’s a lot more emotion in, so that’s why the relief in this moment is really big,” Liverpool manager Klopp told BeIN Sports.

In his past 13 Premier League games at Anfield, Salah has either scored or assisted in all of them; only Alan Shearer (18) and Thierry Henry (17) have had more home runs than him.

“Consistency is the most difficult thing in football,” Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk said of Salah on TNT. “To do it each and every game … big players step up when we need them and we’re very pleased for him and very pleased for our football club.”

After his team’s first league victory in three games, Klopp was visibly ecstatic and pumped his fist to the applauding Liverpool supporters.

Despite Young’s second yellow card for an ill-advised tackle on Luis Diaz, Sean Dyche’s team, who have only triumphed once in their previous 29 meetings with Liverpool, did a commendable job of holding their adversaries at bay for the majority of the match.

In the fierce Merseyside derby, Young’s dismissal was the 23rd red card in Premier League history.

“Sending off happens,” Dyche said. “I think the first (yellow) is touch and go, the second yellow is a yellow, that’s the way it goes. And then second half, we wanted to change the shape and I thought that went really well, we wanted to take the sting out of the game.

“And then of course, the penalty changes it. The penalties, I don’t like the modern rule but I’m aware of it, it hits your arm it’s a penalty. I preferred it when it had to be a deliberate act.”

Everton became even more irate when Ibrahima Konate, the center defender for Liverpool, continued to play after avoiding a second yellow card for bringing down Beto during the second half.

“We got lucky with that one!” Klopp admitted.

Liverpool controlled the game but were mostly limited to long-range attempts, one of which was a scorching effort by Mohamed Salah that went inches over in the first half. A few minutes before halftime, Trent Alexander-Arnold also fired a missile that spun narrowly over the bar.

When Keane’s extended arm stopped Diaz’s cross, they took the lead. Salah hammered the penalty into the corner, giving Pickford no opportunity.

Substitute Darwin Nunez then broke clear and sent a perfectly timed pass to Salah, who calmly tapped home to make the game secure.

Andy Robertson, a defender for Liverpool, was absent because he is scheduled to have surgery on the shoulder he injured last week while playing for Scotland.
