Liverpool U18s scored the 4th of seven goals in the dying minutes to win this local top-of-the-table clash and inflict the first defeat of the season on Everton's U18s.
Everton lead the way in the U18s Premier League and sit four points clear of their local rivals, who have a game in hand on their neighbours.
High scorer Ellis Simms is absent for the Blues tonight after playing in the Checkatrade Trophy game at Oldham on Tuesday. Ryan Astely is also missing.
The home side was ahead inside 2 mins, Duncan heading past Tyrer. Despite a dominant spell for the Reds, Everton hold on and get back into the game eventually through Adedoyin. And they came close to taking the lead when Phillips hits the post.
But 2 goals after the break seemingly put the game beyond the young Everton side. Yet this game still had three more goals in it: Adedoyin would score again for Everton, heading in Pawel Zuk's right-wing cross. And captain Kieran Phillips would tie the game again at 3-3 when he capitalized on a sloppy back-pass.
So all square until almost full-time when the Blues came up wanting on another set-piece and saw their unbeaten record torn asunder in the dying minutes as Liverpool made it 4-3, the final scoreline.
Everton U18s: Tryer, Zuk, Warren, Joe Anderson, McKeown, Iversen, Hunt (85' Stanley), Carroll (90+1' Thompson), Adedoyin, Phillips, Hughes (80' Quirk).
Subs not Used: MacIntyre, Warnock.

Ya could say that Everton wouldve went down if not for a dodgy goal allowed at Bolton one cold evening, or for Farrellys goal against Coventry or for Han Segers taking an awful long time to dive for Graham Stuart's shot.
Still every run must come to an end right, so here's hoping we can turn the tide at Anfield this season.

We would lose a jigsaw completing competition to that lot!
Just out of curiosity, when is the last time we beat them at any level?

I think we should savour that or any win against them because they dont come along too often these days.

I'm not disagreeing that Neville was fouled, but many a ref might've allowed it. As I say, it's and buts, we'll never know, but I do know a couple of Wanderer supporters that have that goal up there with our Clive Thomas's FA Cup Semi final shocking decision.
it's all about opinions.
