The Merseyside Derby never goes off without incident, red cards, sideline scraps and great goals.
This fixture has it all and we are expecting more of the same on Monday night in what Sky Sports are calling #MerseyMonday. Liverpool go into the game 19/20 favourites while Everton find themselves as the 14/5 underdogs.
Earlier this week we asked if you can name ever player who has scored in a Merseyside Derby and to get you in the mood today we are looking the top 5 goals scored in the fixture. Fest your eyes on these 5 crackers from derbies gone by.
Phil Jagielka, September 2014
This right foot thunder bastard came from the unlikeliest of sources. Not only was it a thing of beauty, Jagielka’s late equaliser in 2012 stunned the Kop and earned Everton a point.
Steven Gerrard, March 2012
Gerrard scored a hat trick in this Derby. The first of his three required a mixture of quick thinking and deftness of touch. With Tim Howard off his line Gerrard lifted the ball over the Everton keeper with his left foot. Delightful.
We will be running our 2 Up You Win offer on and all Premier League and La Liga matches across the weekend.
Luis Suarez, November 2013
Suarez’s free kick might be a surprise inclusion for some but this goal late in 2013 is here based on the precision and cunning employed by the Uruguayan make the goal worthy of a top 5 spot.
Dan Gosling, February 2009
119th minute, game on a knife edge and ITV drop the live coverage to go on an ad break. Dan Gosling’s goal will forever be remember for the ITV mess up but it was a very well taken goal under huge pressure.
Gary McAllister, April 2001
This audacious effort from McAllister outfoxed the defence and keeper who all expected a lofted ball to be played in the box. The Scotsman had different ideas and this late goal gave Liverpool their first win at Goodison Park in 10 seasons.
