Everton ended a run of three Merseyside league derby defeats with a 2-0 victory at Goodison Park.

Goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta gave the Toffees a deserved victory in a typically fiery encounter.

Liverpool, watched by new owner John Henry, were second-best for most of the game and remain rooted in the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.
