Everton win at Anfield 22 years later
MADRID, 20 (EUROPA PRESS)
Chelsea drew (1-1) against Southampton on matchday 25 of the Premier League after starting below the scoreboard, thus maintaining their unbeaten record since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel and before visiting Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League, while Liverpool stretched its crisis with the defeat (0-2) against Everton.
The ‘blue’ team added the point with Mount’s penalty goal, a gift from Southampton who at least knew how to break a losing streak of six consecutive losses in the league. Minamino overtook the ‘Saints’ after half an hour and despite Chelsea’s draw, it was the locals who were closest to victory at St. Mary’s.
Tuchel’s team leaves its fourth position up in the air but remains undefeated since the German coach arrived at the end of January. Chelsea will play the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 at the Metropolitano on Tuesday against Atlético de Madrid that lost this Saturday (0-1) to Levante.
In addition, the English day left a new defeat for Liverpool at Anfield, the fourth in a row when they came from 68 games without losing. Jürgen Klopp’s men fell in the Merseyside derby in a brilliant performance by Everton to win at their neighbor’s house as they had not done since 1999. Richarlison and Sigurdsson, at the start and end of the match, were key as well as Pickford’s saves.
For Everton it is a further step in their ambition to hunt down European positions, with 40 points, the same as Liverpool that, already fired from its options to defend the Premier, begins to find it difficult to be in the ‘Top 4’ for access to Champions.
