Liverpool Vs. Everton: Reds Win Merseyside Derby On Sadio Mane’s Late Goal

Sadio Mane’s dramatic injury-time winner earned Liverpool a 1-0 victory over Everton on Monday at Goodison Park.

The Reds looked set to have to settle for a point in a typically high-tempo, hard-fought Merseyside derby they dominated large parts of, but Mane reacted quickest when Daniel Sturridge’s low shot hit the post and converted from close range in the 94th minute.

The goal was no more than Jurgen Klopp’s side deserved, with Roberto Firmino twice being denied after half-time before Mane’s late intervention.

A second straight road win lifts Liverpool back up to second in the Premier League standings.

The key points:

  • Liverpool shade a first half featuring few clear-cut chances, with Divock Origi going closest for the Reds.
  • Klopp’s team control the second period from start to finish but look set to be frustrated – until, that is, Mane strikes deep into stoppage time.
  • Sturridge and Emre Can make their comebacks from injury as late substitutes.
