“It was, for sure, the best performance we’ve shown since I’m at Liverpool at Goodison. We had some good games here, but we were never as good as tonight. We were never as calm as tonight, we were never as convinced as tonight and that’s why we won the game and I am really happy about that.”

Everton boss Rafael Benitez said that the individual mistakes have the game on Wednesday. The Spaniard further said that after conceding two early goals, his response was good but it wasn’t enough to earn a positive result against Liverpool. He said on the club’s website:

“I think anyone who saw the game could see we made too many mistakes. When you make too many mistakes against a top side, you pay for that. After mistakes for their first two goals, the reaction of the team was very good. The fans were pushing us and when we scored, you could see the atmosphere was really good. But after another mistake, we conceded, and it changed the game. The third goal changed everything because mentally it is very difficult to react after another mistake.”

Everton will welcome Arsenal in their next game in the Premier League on Monday night and Liverpool will travel to Molineux Stadium to encounter Wolverhampton Wanderers.
