Video: The top 5 goals scored in the Merseyside Derby

Fest your eyes on these 5 crackers from derbies gone by!

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.

Back a team to win and if they go 2 goals up at any point in the match we’ll pay you out as a winner immediately

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.
