No action for Iwobi as Liverpool hammers Everton



Super Eagles ace Alex Iwobi was an unused substitute as visiting Liverpool hammered Everton on Wednesday night. The visitors began the goal feast as early as the 9th minute through Henderson.  It was an encounter in which Ballon d’ Or Nominee Mohamed Salah grabbed a brace in a 4-1 demolition of the Toffees interestingly were not tough enough in the night. Everton have young star Demarai Gray to thank for their only consolation goal scored in the 38th minute of the match.

With Everton having taken four points off the then-reigning Premier League champions last term, and inflicted a season-altering injury to talisman Virgil van Dijk on Liverpool’s last trip across Stanley Park, the visitors used the 239th meeting with their rivals to ruthlessly exorcise some demons.

Captain Jordan Henderson curled Liverpool into the lead  before Salah put the visitors two up inside 19 minutes at a stunned Goodison, where a number of the home faithful sought an early exit.
