Sam Allardyce says Everton 'mastered' Liverpool during the Merseyside derby

Everton Liverpool 07/12/2017

It was his first goal in a match between two of English football's greatest rivals.

Cuco Martina, a right-footer playing at left-back in the absence of the injured Leighton Baines, never looked comfortable and having got himself in tangle Salah checked back onto his stronger left foot to curl a now trademark shot over Jordan Pickford and into the far top corner of the goal.

Liverpool fans have often see leads slip from their fingers with a memorable 4-3 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth a stand-out example of the Reds throwing away advantages.

Although the tactic of getting men behind the ball and hitting it long early, a tried and tested move from the Allardyce playbook, was no surprise the Everton manager would have been furious at how his players executed it.

The Reds coach shared his disappointment with talkSPORT after seeing his side concede a late penalty following a clumsy challenge by Dejan Lovren on Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Lovren was still protesting with officials after the final whistle while Klopp argued with a Sky Sports television interviewer.

'Carra and Steven Gerrard both spoke to me in the build-up and their message was clear: 'If you do something here, ' they said, 'you'll always be remembered.

On Luis Suarez teeing up the third goal for that hat trick: "Luis put one on a plate for me".

The German, who defended his decision to take off Salah with 22 minutes remaining, refused to accept it had been a penalty and said his side had been the only ones trying to win.

"We knew it would be hard and we would need to be patient". Then you open the door for them like this.

Klopp said Lovren had not even made a challenge. Calvert-Lewin is smart but it is nothing.

The change did little to alter the pattern of play with Salah heading wide soon after the restart before, with Klopp wary of his heavy workload, he was replaced by Firmino.

Referee Craig Pawson pointed to the spot, much to the dismay of the home dug-out, but Allardyce fully supported what the majority of spectators believed was the correct decision.

'It was a brilliant goal that they scored. But I can't honestly say they had too many clear-cut chances after that.
