Video: Everton U18 5-0 Liverpool U18
The first-teams might be experiencing very different fortunes at the moment, but Everton at least got the chance to get one over neighbours Liverpool in this under-18s clash.
The local rivals’ academy sides met at Everton’s Finch Farm training complex for a mini-Merseyside derby – and the Toffees emerged as comprehensive winners.
Goals from Harry Charsley, Jack Bainbridge, Calum Dyson (two) and Liam Walsh secured victory for Everton.
In scenes that were more reminiscent of the senior teams, Liverpool didn’t seem to be particularly effective at defending crosses.
