Everton players rejoice after beating Huddersfield Town

Everton, shaking off their past lethargy in a row, handed a victory to new coach Sam Allardyce, beating Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Goodison Park.

The goals were scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 47th minute and Dominic Clavert-Lewin in the 73rd, to wrap up a second successive victory.

Five-star Liverpool overwhelmed Brighton Hove Albion with five goals, with Emre Can,  Roberto Firmino and Coutinho, the stars. The hosts had a consolatory goal, making the scoreline 5-1.

Emre Can opened scoring in the 30th minute.

Then Firmino scored in the 31st minute and added the third goal in the the 48th minute as  Liverpool cruised into the fourth place on the table, overtaking Arsenal who will play later today, against second place Manchester United at the Emirates.

Glenn Murray for the hosts pulled a goal back to threaten a fightback.

But it never materialised, as Jurgen Klopp’s men turned on the style in the closing stages, according to a match report by goal.com.

Murray could have scored again, too, but Liverpool added an extra gloss to proceedings with two late goals, both inspired by Philippe Coutinho, as the Reds moved above Arsenal and into the top four.
