Liverpool fans mock Everton with Rafa Benitez chant to familiar tune in derby demolition

Liverpool fans piled the misery on their Merseyside counterparts during the Reds rampant 4-1 victory over local rivals Everton at Goodison Park.

The Toffees are currently managed by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, though his tenure appears to be unravelling just four months into his reign.

After Jurgen Klopp ‘s side bagged their fourth of the evening late on, a chorus of “Rafa’s at the wheel” could be heard ring out around Goodison Park, clearly coming from the delighted away end.

The chant continued as the home faithful were part of a mass exodus, having seen enough as Everton’s wait for a home victory over their most fierce rivals goes on, dating back to a 2-0 victory in 2010.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Will Rafa Benitez last the season as Everton manager? Comment below

Reds skipper Jordan Henderson opened the scoring in the ninth minute, bending his left-footed effort beyond the despairing dive of England colleague Jordan Pickford.

Mohamed Salah doubled the visitors lead just ten minutes later with a trademark composed finish with his lethal left foot, though 20 minutes later the hosts had something to cling on to.

Demarai Gray slotted his finish through the legs of Alisson to restore some hope, but the class of Klopp’s men eventually shone through after the interval.

Another chance was calmly dispatched by Salah after a terrible mistake from Toffees skipper Seamus Coleman, before Diogo Jota sealed the win with just over ten minutes left on the clock.

While the result will undoubtedly hurt for obvious reasons such as local pride being at stake, it also prolongs Everton’s recent run of miserable form.

The Toffees failed to halt their decline after a woeful run of form has seen them pick up just two points from a possible 24, their last win coming as far back as late-September against newly-promoted Norwich City.

Pressure is already building on Benitez, a figure many of the Everton fanbase did not want appointed in the first place due to his ties with rivals Liverpool after six years at Anfield as manager.

Ugly scenes followed the full-time whistle, with fans sitting nearby the directors box taking issue with chairman Bill Kenwright and other members of the board as they left their seats.

Some fans even made their way on to the pitch to remonstrate with Everton’s misfiring performers, captain Coleman taking the brunt of their anger.

The majority however had already left, some as early as 19 minutes in following Salah’s first, which in itself is perhaps a more damning indictment of Benitez’s struggling start to life in the blue half of Merseyside.
