Liverpool 0-2 Everton 1985-86

Lineker and Ratcliffe score the goals as Everton record a famous 2-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield.



  1. This was a great day for me as an 18 yr old…being at anfield..supporting my team..and to see us win at such a great stadium..the atmosphere was electric with both sets of fans singing and screaming..truly great days and to be honest the beginning of the end of real football…the 90s just saw money take over and the 2000s on … was finished…i actually stopped going the following season..everton clinched the title back from the reds…but prices went up to 11 or 12 quid…and i couldnt afford it….so i stopped going…started in 75 ish as a little boy…all over by 87…sad really…why…WHY…did money have to take it away from me 😪

  2. You can tell the stadium is over-crowded, look at the density of people in the stadium. At least 20-25% more of todays highest possible attendance. What was the attendance if anyone knows?

  4. As a Blue I must say that this Derby victory over the Reds was an even more satisfying win- even although we had we won at Anfield the season before, it was still only by 1-0 and we had thoroughly outplayed them. I do not think the score at Anfield in this match or in the one the year before tallied up with the performance as on both occasions we should probably have won by 3 or 4 nil. COYB!

  5. You almost forget how good Southall was. Three saves in the space of about 5 seconds from Rush at one point in the second half, then just picks his cap up and gets on with it. Ten years later, he was still doing the business for us in the FA Cup Final win. What a legend.

  6. Everton were the current champions and these were the two best teams in the land imo. Liverpool went on an incredible run after this match and I think they remained unbeaten for the rest of the season – culminating in the illustrious 'Double' win of Division one Champions and FA Cup winners. I was on the Kop that day with my dad and our season tickets cost £67 each lol.
