Alexander-Arnold hit on of the passes of the season in build-up to third goal v Everton

Liverpool made light work of their Stanley Park neighbours last night, battering Everton 5-2 in the first Merseyside derby of the season.
Divock Origi was a man possessed in the first half, returning to haunt his favourite Blues with two sublime goals.

The first was courtesy of an inch-perfect Sadio Mane pass that saw Origi easily round a floundering Jordan Pickford before cooly slotting home into an unguarded net.

Ultimately, Origi would miss out on a well-deserved hat trick but there can be no denying it was one of his finest performances in a Liverpool shirt.

However, he wasn’t the only Reds player having a party in that first half.

Xherdan Shaqiri showed exactly what he is capable of and even managed to grab his first goal in nearly a year.

It was an incredible team move to set the little Swiss in though, and Liverpool fans were left purring after Trent Alexander Arnold produced another missile of a diagonal in the build-up.

Alexander-Arnold’s passing range is simply unfair at times, and, when he pinged a drive cross-field to set Mane away, Anfield could only gasp and applaud.
