Top 10 (Everton-Liverpool) Merseyside Derby goals – Part 2

Ahead of Saturday’s Merseyside derby we have looked back through our video archive to bring you our 10 favourite goals from previous encounters between Everton and Liverpool. In part one we bought you some classic goals from Cahill, Ferguson, Kanchelsis, Cottee and Dacourt. Part two features some of the greatest strikes in the history of the derby. From Sheedy and his two finger salute at the Kop to Carsley scoring at Goodison, there are some brilliant goals.


5. Alan Harper (Goodison Park 1983-84)

Everton were just beginning to re-emerge as a force in English football when Liverpool arrived at Goodison defending a long unbeaten run in the derby. Everton were trailing to an Ian Rush goal, when substitute Alan Harper popped up to equaliser with just five minutes remaining.

4. Lee Carsley (Goodison Park 2004-05)

Everton were enjoying a fabulous season which would ultimately end in Champions League qualification and for the first time in 18 years Everton finishing ahead of Liverpool in the table. When the Reds arrived at Goodison they were still huge favourites, but Carsley struck midway through the second half to give the Blues a historic victory.

3. Dan Gosling (Goodison Park 2008-09)

This FA Cup tie was the third meeting between the sides in just three weeks. The previous two games had both ended 1-1, but with this game heading towards a penalty shoot-out, Dan Gosling produced a calm and composed finish to send Goodison wild and Everton on their way to the FA Cup Final.

2. Kevin Sheedy (Anfield 1986-87)

This was one of six meetings between the teams during the 1986-87 season. Everton failed to win any of the matches, but emerged as Champions for the second time in three years. This match at Anfield ended in a 3-1 defeat, but Kevin Sheedy’s free kick and subsequent celebration is part of Everton folklore.

1. Graeme Sharp (Anfield 1984-85)

The greatest derby goal of them all. This strike from Graeme Sharp is incredible and finally gave the Blues the belief that they could go on and beat Liverpool to the Division One title.
