Liverpool v Everton - "The Derby"

Notable Games

The clubs first met in the Liverpool Senior Cup final which Liverpool won 1-0 in 1893. However this was an amateur match and is not counted in either club's records as an official Merseyside derby.

The first ever League meeting was in the 1894/95 season when Everton won 3-0 at Goodison Park, it was only at Liverpool's sixth attempt that they beat Everton with a 3-1 win in 1897/98 at Anfield.

The FA Cup 5th Round tie, on the 11 March 1967 at Goodison Park, was watched by 64,318 fans, and a further 40,169 at Anfield on giant screen, making a total of 104,487. Everton won 1-0, with Alan Ball scoring the winner.

The 1966 Charity Shield saw Everton play Liverpool at Goodison Park with the latter winning 1-0. Before kick off, the League Championship which had been won by Liverpool was paraded around the pitch along with the FA Cup which Everton had won. Liverpool's Roger Hunt and Everton's Ray Wilson both World Cup winners carried the Jules Rimet Trophy around the field for a lap of honour.

The first meeting between the two sides at Wembley Stadium came in the final of the 1984 League Cup with Liverpool eventually winning a replay (at Maine Road, Manchester) after the first tie at Wembley was drawn.

Later that year the clubs met again at Wembley Stadium in the FA Charity Shield. Everton emerged as the victors thanks to a Bruce Grobbelaar own goal.

The 1986 and 1989 FA Cup finals are still the only Merseyside derby finals in the competition to date with Liverpool victorious on both occasions, 3-1 and 3-2 (AET) respectively.

On 23 April 1977 the two sides met in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Maine Road, Manchester. Although Liverpool took the lead twice, Everton fought back twice, and appeared to have scored a winner when, with three minutes to go, Bryan Hamilton turned in a cross from Ronnie Goodlass, only to see the goal chalked off by referee Clive Thomas.

6 November 1982 saw Liverpool defeat Everton 5-0 at Goodison Park with Ian Rush scoring 4 of the goals.

March 1988 Liverpool were unbeaten in 29 league games from the start of the season (then a joint record) when a Wayne Clarke goal helped Everton win 1-0 at Goodison.

On 20 February 1991, an epic 4-4 FA Cup replay saw Everton come from behind 4 times. It is generally regarded as one of the greatest Merseyside derbies ever. Liverpool's manager Kenny Dalglish subsequently resigned, with Everton winning the second replay the following week.

The first derby of the new millennium at Goodison, April 21, 2000 ended controversially. With the score 0-0, in the dying seconds Liverpool goalie Sander Westerveldt went to clear the ball upfield, but it hit Everton's Don Hutchinson in the back and rebounded over the goal-line. Referee Graham Poll disallowed the goal, claiming that he had already blown for time, although TV replays showed this was not the case. Ten years later, in his autobiography, the referee admitted that he should have given the goal, and apologised to Everton fans.

On 18 April 2001 Liverpool won an epic 3-2 league derby at Goodison Park. Liverpool went 1-0 up after 5 minutes through Emile Heskey but Duncan Ferguson made it level just before half time. In the 57th minute Markus Babbel put Liverpool back in the lead. Robbie Fowler then missed a penalty before a David Unsworth penalty squared it up again. Liverpool then had Igor Biscan sent off. As the match appeared to be heading for a draw in the 93rd minute Gary McAllister measured a 44-yard free kick into the net to win the game. Following this crucial goal Liverpool remained unbeaten for their remaining 9 games and qualified for Champions League by 1 point, and won the FA Cup and UEFA Cup enroute.

The 2006 Goodison Park derby saw Everton beating Liverpool 3-0, scoring three goals for the first time in a league derby since 1966, and the first time at Goodison since 1904 with goals from Tim Cahill and a double from (then) club record signing Andy Johnson. This was only Everton's second win over Liverpool in seven years and took them to the top of the Premier League.

In October 2007, Liverpool won a controversial game 2-1 at Goodison, the first goal coming from a hotly disputed penalty which saw Tony Hibbert sent off. And Everton had a good shout for a penalty when Jamie Carragher fouled Joleon Lescott late on in the game. Referee Mark Clattenburg has not been in charge of any Everton game since that date.

In the February 2009 FA Cup 4th round replay, Liverpool and Everton were drawing 0-0 again and the game went into extra time. Everton's teenage substitute Dan Gosling managed to break the deadlock with a dramatic winner in the 118th minute. The Toffees managed to reach their first final in 15 years.
