Gary Nevilles Prediction on Liverpool’s game against everton on Sunday evening was spot on after the win at Anfield.
The Reds beat their local rivals in a vibrant Merseyside derby where Frank Lampard’s men now sit on the relegation zone. But the Toffees were resilient enough to frustrate Jurgen Klopp.
However, it wasn’t long after the second half began when Andy Robertson broke the deadlock. Divock Origi contributed to its cult status Liverpool by doubling the lead to end the game.
The result brings the Reds back to a point Manchester City in their hunt for it First League Title to bring back memories of fighting at the top when Brendan Rodgers was in charge. Back in 2014, the two titans were back at the top only for Liverpool to stumble Chelsea as Demba Ba took advantage of Steven Gerrard’s slip.
Neville alluded to the incident with his predictions – although he noted that times have changed very drastically since then. He tweeted: “Liverpool v Chelsea shadows match so far. (Chelsea’s Jose Manager/Stevie G – Demba Ba Goal).
“Liverpool frustrated and their opponents with the intent to annoy. But this Liverpool is better and that everton are not Jose Chelsea!”

It’s certainly true that Klopp has turned Liverpool into a fully oiled winning machine while Neville has made his prediction. The Reds coach said: “There are two halves to a football game, thank God. In the first half we didn’t pass quickly enough, accelerated at the right moments and left them behind. At half-time I told the players it was easy to improve. We didn’t really show up so they stepped up.
“We had a lot of things to improve and we did. It’s really difficult to deal with more than 80 percent possession and the opponent’s threat to counterattack. I’m very happy because not every week is about flying. It’s about getting results. We had to work hard for it, but all is well.
“There aren’t many points that we can drop, the next one is always around the corner. That’s the situation we’re in. We have eight games to play and if things go well we can put in a ninth , but.” you have to win games when you’re not at your best.”
