Everton coach Duncan Ferguson was visibly emotional as the Toffees secured their first win at Anfield since 1999.

The visitors won 2-0 at the home of rivals Liverpool thanks to goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

It was their first victory over the Reds since 2010, though they had to wait even longer for success at Anfield.

They ended a 22-year wait by beating the reigning Premier League champions with Ferguson on the verge of tears as he celebrated.

Ferguson spent ten years at Goodison Park across two spells, though was at Newcastle United when the Toffees last won at Anfield.

But Everton are still a club close to the former striker’s heart and Saturday’s win appeared to mean a lot.

He was straight on the pitch following the final whistle, handing out kisses to the victorious players.

Everton scored early and late to secure the win at Anfield with Brazilian forward Richarlison putting the visitors ahead after just three minutes.

They had to wait until the final ten minutes to secure the win with Sigurdsson slotting home from the spot after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was fouled.

It was also the fourth straight defeat at home for Liverpool, who romped to their maiden Premier League title last season.

It means the Reds have equalled the club league record of consecutive home defeats, set from November to December 1923.

They have now lost four successive Premier League fixtures at Anfield, directly following a 68-match league home unbeaten run.
