Liverpool recorded their first of two wins in the league against fierce rivals Everton. By no means a fiery affair, the Blues saw themselves a man down after a controversial red card against midfielder Jack Rodwell in the 23rd minute.

Taking advantage of the additional man, the Reds found themselves ahead in the second half before finishing the game off just eleven minutes later. Kenny Dalglish's inspired substitutions injected pace into the game (Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy for Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing) which led to Andy Carroll scoring in the 71st minute.

Liverpool should have taken the lead right before the half, but Dirk Kuyt missed from the penalty spot—the first of many for this season.
