Liverpool were comfortable winners at Goodison Park in the 239th Merseyside derby, beating Rafael Benitez's side 4-1 on Wednesday evening.
Goals from Jordan Henderson, Mohamed Salah (2) and Diogo Jota helped Jurgen Klopp's side to a comprehensive victory as Everton struggled to deal with the Reds' attacking advances.
Everton were unbeaten in the three previous league matches with Liverpool heading into tonight's game but were very much second-best in the latest instalment of this historic fixture.

The Blues' record in derby matches has been particularly poor in the modern era, having won only four times since 2000.
Liverpool's latest win over their local rivals has seen Klopp's side get revenge for the Toffees' Anfield triumph of last season.
But it is also of great significance for another reason.
The Reds have now won more Merseyside Derbies at Goodison Park than Everton (41-40) in all competitions, in what can only be described as a damning statistic for the Blues.
Tonight was the first time Liverpool have won at the home of the Blues since Sadio Mane's late winner during the 2016/17 season, following a run of four successive draws.
Liverpool's first-ever victory secured at Goodison Park arrived in September 1898 on their fourth official visit.
