Liverpool stormed to a stunning 5-2 win over Merseyside rivals Everton to maintain their eight-point lead in the Premier League.

Even without Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho, Liverpool made light work of Everton to win yet another Merseyside derby. It allowed them to maintain their commanding lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Divock Origi (twice), Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mane all scored in the first-half for the Reds.

Although Michael Keane and Richarlison were both on target as well to give Everton a fighting chance at Anfield. However, they never really stood any chance of grabbing even a point in the end.

After some big misses from both teams in the second half, Georginio Wijnaldum struck late to seal a memorable victory for Liverpool.

Now we give you the five main talking points of the 234th Merseyside derby.
