Positive tactics and awful defending combined to create a goalfest at Goodison Park.
This is Roberto Martinez’s first-choice XI at the moment, with Leon Osman only on the bench.
Brendan Rodgers switched to a cautious 4-3-3 system, with doubts over Daniel Sturridge’s fitness meaning Luis Suarez played alone upfront. Joe Allen came into the midfield, with Jordan Henderson moving right. Jon Flanagan made a rare start at left-back.
This was quite a contest – and while the defending was often terrible, there were also some interesting tactical decisions from both coaches.
