Match Report

And just like that, a 14-year wait comes to an end.

Everton hadn't won any of their previous 12 home league games against Liverpool ahead of Wednesday evening, yet, in what turned out a special night at the Grand Old Lady, the Blues downed their neighbours 2-0 with goals from Jarrad Branthwaite and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, subsequently moving eight points clear of the Premier League relegation zone with just four games to play.

For the clash, Everton made two changes as James Garner and Ben Godfrey returned to the starting XI, with Andre Gomes and Ashley Young dropping to the bench.

Goal hero Calvert-Lewin also maintained his place spearheading the Everton attack after overcoming the slight knock he sustained against Forest.
