Jurgen Klopp made Merseyside derby history on Saturday as Liverpool's 3-1 win over Everton at Anfield made him the first Reds manager to win his first three league clashes against their city rivals.

Everton remains without a win at Anfield in the 21st century, and Liverpool was quick to assert its dominance as Sadio Mane struck in the eighth minute.

Philippe Coutinho struck a wondrous individual effort shortly after Matthew Pennington had drawn the Toffees level.

Divock Origi made the points and record safe in the second half, with Klopp having won 4-0 and 1-0 in his first two derbies.

Victory cements the Reds' position in the top four and also extends its unbeaten run over Everton to 13 games, matching its previous best sequence without losing to its neighbours set in the 1970s.
