On this day (April 3) 1999, Liverpool beat Everton 3-2 at Anfield with a Robbie Fowler brace and a late strike Patrik Berger.
The Reds, managed by the late, great, Gerard Houllier, had to come from a goal behind after their cross park rivals took the lead in the opening minute through Olivier Dacourt.
Fowler, who is lauded as a ‘God’ by Kopites, drew the hosts level from the penalty spot, sparking a controversial and iconic celebration, before putting Liverpool in front just six minutes later.
Czech Republic international midfielder, Berger, all-but secured the three points late on but there was still time for a nervy finish when Francis Jeffers gave Walter Smith’s visitors a lifeline.
It wasn’t to be however as Liverpool kept the bragging rights and the points on their way to a lowly seventh-place finish, with the blue half of Merseyside floundering in fourteenth.
Some memorable Reds from this fixture include Vegard Heggem, Rigobert Song and a still wet behind the ears Steven Gerrard.
Thankfully for the credentials of football in Liverpool, both sides have improved drastically since this campaign over two decades ago – although currently, it’s Everton who have the upper hand, albeit for the first time in many years.
