Liverpool kept themselves in the hunt for a top-four spot at the end of the season as they saw off the challenge of Everton in a hotly-contested Merseyside derby at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Sadio Mane’s wonderful solo goal opened the scoring after just eight minutes only for defender Matthew Pennington – playing his first game of the season – to equalise just before the half hour.
