It was never going to be an open-ended game because of the early beginning and the fact that it was a Merseyside derby just after the international break.

Mohamed Salah did not let the strain get to him; he converted with ease before ensuring the outcome in stoppage time with a pair of goals that won the game.
The key events included a red card, a penalty, a clean sheet, and two goals, and each had larger significance than simply this particular game alone.
Although he was uncharacteristically sloppy and only had 42 touches (the fewest of any starter for the Reds), players of his calibre stepped up when called upon, and he did exactly that for both goals.
It maintained his remarkable performance at Anfield and for the year, which is evidence of his extraordinary consistency.
First player in the Premier League to contribute to 30+ goals in 2023 (19 goals, 12 assists). Only Gerrard has more (9), contributing to 8 goals in 10 league outings versus Everton.
Whenever things don’t go his way, he truly is competing in his own league. Liverpool has received enough red cards this year, so it was a refreshing change to be on the receiving end of one.
