Mohamed Salah and Liverpool break records to put more pressure on Rafa Benitez as Everton fans leave Goodison Park early during Merseyside humility


Everton fans left Goodison Park as a 4-1 record for Liverpool and Mohamed Salah left Rafael Benitez’s future in tatters.

Liverpool mocked their rivals with songs about manager Benitez ahead of the game and ended the game at the same mansion as his side hit a convincing three points.

Liverpool crushed their opponents in the opening stages, eventually finding the breakthrough with curler Jordan Henderson in the ninth minute.

10 minutes later it was two minutes when Salah grabbed a pass from Henderson before guiding an unstoppable shot around Jordan Pickford and into the top corner.

A number of fans started leaving Goodison Park when the second goal came in, but Demarai Gray reduced the deficit before half-time.

However, a second-half comeback was not expected, with Salah hanging on to a Seamus Coleman mistake to put the game to bed, before a wonderful turn and finish from Diogo Jota added a bit of shine.

Benitez looked absolutely devastated at the final whistle

Full-time Benitez’s face painted a picture of himself with the Spaniard clearly realizing he is on borrowed time as a betting favorite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job.

His injured team showed brilliant moments after a 2-0 loss, fueled by summer rookies Gray and Andros Townsend, but Coleman’s mistake settled the tie.

The match started with Liverpool fans ironically chanting Benitez’s name and ended with a chorus of ‘Rafa at the wheel’.

The fact that their signing was aimed at a sea of ​​empty blue seats tells its own story, however, with Everton winless in eight and desperate to get out of their misery.
