Liverpool keep U23 title hopes alive with victory over Everton

Liverpool enjoyed a comfortable 3-1 win in the mini derby against Everton U23 yesterday.

The victory keeps the Reds in contention for the Prem 2 title.

Dominic Solanke opened the scoring from the spot for the Reds, who doubled their advantage shortly after when Lewis Gibson inadvertently put through his own net.

Nathaniel Phillips then effectively confirmed a hard-fought victory in the second half as he turned the ball home from close range following a scramble at a corner, though there was still time for Bassala Sambou to net a consolation on the break.

Neil Critchley's team must now beat Chelsea at home in their final league fixture of the season and hope that Arsenal falter against West Ham United in order to clinch the crown.
