David Moyes couldn’t do it, Roberto Martinez couldn’t do it, Romelu Lukaku couldn’t do it not even Wayne Rooney could do it.

But after 22 years of Premier League hurt, Everton have finally finally won at Anfield.

In a season of the surreal, with Liverpool’s title defence faltering, goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson that mean Carlo Ancelotti is the first boss to take three points back across Stanley Park since 1999.

And with the nerves jangling for both teams ahead of kick off, the swirling wind just seemed to be blowing in Everton’s direction, as fans favourite Richarlison fired them ahead.

Ozan Kabak’s error was recycled into James Rodriguez and he posted the Brazilian through to smash past Alisson.

And that early breakthrough did spark a reaction from the Reds as Jordan Pickford produced two superb stops from Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

But Everton were in no mood to go quietly before the break, as Seamus Coleman drew a world class save from Alisson.

A furious Klopp sent his players out early after the break as they swarmed on Everton before the hour with Sadio Mane inches away from a leveller.

But as much as Liverpool looked to hammer down the door, Coleman, Pickford and the Everton back line refused to budge as the minutes ticked down.

And with eight minutes to go on the clock, substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin tumbled inside the box and fellow sub Sigurdsson tucked home the most important penalty of his career.

Full Time on a historic night at Anfield it’s Liverpool 0 Everton 2
