Everton's Joseph Yobo had a 212th Merseyside derby to forget as his own goal and a defensive mistake handed Liverpool a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

The Nigeria centre-back inadvertently diverted Javier Mascherano's 30-yard shot past Tim Howard in the 12th minute.

And despite Everton enjoying the majority of play after the interval Yobo's missed clearance led to the crucial second goal from Dirk Kuyt with 10 minutes remaining.
