Liverpool’s reserves knock Everton out of FA Cup

Liverpool’s reserves knock Everton out of FA Cup

Liverpool (UK) (Reuters) A stunning strike from 18-year-old Curtis Jones gave Liverpool a 1-0 win over Everton in their FA Cup third-round tie at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp made nine changes to his side, giving starts to three teenagers, while his Italian counterpart Carlo Ancelotti opted for a largely full-strength Everton line-up.

Everton had the better chances, with Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian foiling goalbound efforts from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Mason Holgate and Richarlison in the first half.

But the youthful Liverpool side played the more enterprising football.

Jones, a local-born academy product, delivered the killer-blow in the 71st minute with a superb curling effort into the top corner.

The defeat left Everton without a win against their rivals since October 2010.
