So a convincing win for Liverpool, a crushing defeat for Everton and defeats for Watford and Crystal Palace to boot.

There is ANOTHER Premier League game tomorrow night so I shall see you there. 

'Tough to take'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Everton

Everton midfielder Gareth Barry: "It's a derby defeat which are always tough to take, especially so convincing. There's always another game and we are lucky that it's a big one. We have to focus on the game on Saturday.

"We didn't lay a glove on them in the second half. I felt my groin at the end of the first half. Fingers crossed I can get through but you never know. It's a huge game for the club at the weekend and we have got some more injuries. Sometimes these things happen for a reason."

'You need luck'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Liverpool

More from Jurgen Klopp: "4-0 against Everton, if you told me before the game I would take it but now it is spoiled by the injury."The situation with Divock Origi is not good. The first reaction was maybe it's broken but it's not broken. The ankle is twisted so we have to see. The season is only four weeks. I am happy that it is not broken. 

"When you want to have success you need luck with injuries. Seeing him on the floor is not too nice so I couldn't enjoy the second half too much."

'Origi ankle is not broken'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "I would like to say yes, I am delighted, but the injury to Divock Origi has cost me some joy. The first half was a derby, it was wild from Everton, not patient enough. We could have played better but scored two goals.

"The second half the game changed completely, they had no chance any more. It's really great I would like to say but I cannot ignore this situation.

"I can't say too much about Origi but they say it is disgusting, awful pictures. But it's not broken, it is a twisted ankle, he is on crutches walking around so we will have to see. 

"Beating Everton is a special thing."

'The game was a non event'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Everton

Everton boss Roberto Martinez, speaking to BBC Sport: "The red card leaves you in a position where the game from then on is a non event. It is a really hurtful experience. 

"At the moment we are facing strong adversity but we have to switch attention to the big game at the weekend." 

On the sending off: "Not controlling the emotion. He got caught with the emotion of the derby a bit. You can see why he has been given the red card and now we won't have him for the weekend. 

"I think the game is so big at Wembley that it is a game they don't need lifting. We have to regroup and in typical Everton fashion we have to give the fans what they deserve. The showing we gave today was horrible for them to see and for us to experience."

'Victims of our own success'

West Ham 3-1 Watford

West Ham United

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "We wanted to prove to Watford that we are a much better team than the game between us at their ground [which we lost]. 

"We can say they had half of their mind on the weekend and they rested players which we expected. But their line-up still had internationals.

"We are victims of our success as the bar is always more and more up. We are coping with that well. This game was a big one because I told the players 'the season is good or very good anyway but after this game are we going to look up and try to catch those teams'. Still we have to look down as Liverpool are in good form."

If that had ended 10-0 to Liverpool, the Toffees wouldn't have had much cause for complaint.....

At the start of the season I bet Everton would have been chuffed to be one place behind Chelsea with 4 games to go.

'Disastrous - an embarrassment'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Everton

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "It was a disaster. A horrible showing that started with the best intentions but ended up with the inability to get the basics right. We forgot to defend the box and gave them a soft two-goal lead. We got emotional with the red card and from then on Gareth Barry was injured and John Stones was ill, it was a chain reaction. A disaster. An impossible experience.

"It is a challenge [Funes Mori] that he should avoid. He got carreid away with the emotion of a derby, he got carried away. Probably a red card, I can understand it or maybe a yellow. The top and bottom is that we didn't cope with the emotions of the occasion. A feeling of embarrassment.

"It is a huge game for us on Saturday in the FA Cup which is the only good thing. We will be hurting for a long, long time but we need to react quickly for the game on Saturday. We are strong enough to react but we are short at centre-back now."

Roberto Martinez has been out to face the cameras. He's very honest...

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Daniel Sturridge will do well to claim that one! Very dubious...

'No Plan B'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Former Everton midfielder Peter Reid on BBC Radio 5 live: "I don't like criticising managers as we have all been there but Everton boss Roberto Martinez doesn't seem to have a Plan B. He goes 4-2-3-1 but you've got to have something else. People work you out."

Sturridge claiming a brace

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder James Milner: "Every derby is a big game for everyone at the club, to give the fans the bragging rights. It was a big victory. We created chances and kept pushing forwards but we knew that we had anotehr gear.It's always been a quiet strength of mine to get assists and it's smoething that I work on.

Daniel Sturridge: "It's goals, not goal, innit? You know it! Phil Coutinho's shot hit me so it's my goal, of course. No doubt. 

"For me it is important to contribute as much as I can with goals and assists. When I came on I wanted to be on the scoresheet. It is frustrating not to play, for any player. We are in fantastic form."

'Practically all of the players are fit'

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Watford

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores: "The application was very good from us. We conceded really early and then it was very tough to play against a tough team like West Ham as they had confidence early.

"In the second half, we reacted really well but not good enough to reduce three goals.

"I don't completely agree with the decisions of the referee always. 

"We have used a lot of players recently and the plan was to try to conserve and be fit for the weekend. Practically all of the players will be fit for the weekend."

Jon, are things OK at home?

I'm an Evertonian. Still, my wife's a Villa fan so it could be worse I suppose. Small comforts.

Re: Has Martinez lost the Everton dressing room? Definitely not, the team is playing exactly in the Martinez mould, nice on the eye and clueless in defence.

It's the Merseyside derby and Liverpool are basically trying to get Joe Allen or Lucas to score a fifth. It's like a school game. They'll have Mignolet up front soon...

CLOSE!

Nathaniel Clyne shovels a chip over the top after a good ball through. The ground erupts to greet a shot from Lucas which is well wide - Jurgen Klopp has a laugh plastered right across his face.

Now the world can see what us Evertonians have known for 18 months: Martinez is useless and has squandered our best squad for a generation.

Scott, Chester.

Liverpool are leading the 'shots on goal' stat by a whopping 33 shots to (ahem) 3. Battering.

'You'll Never Walk Alone' rings out at Anfield on an utterly comfortable night for the home fans and players. A bizarre game after that Everton red card. 

'We have to keep chasing the pack'

West Ham 3-1 Watford

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble: "All-in-all that is a really good three points for us. We were in control and then Watford brought on Troy Deeney and he made a little bit of difference.

"It is an important win as we were on a bit of of a hiding to nothing." 

Asked about challenging for European places, he added: "We just have to win our games. We were unlucky against Leicester with the late penalty. We have to keep chasing the pack and keep looking in front in the chase for European places."

Tom Cross: Will an FA Cup semi final ever have been played between teams whose fans are so desperate to see their managers sacked?

Ben Ashton: This really is utter humiliation for Everton. Liverpool playing very well but Martinez must want the ground to swallow him.

Ben Fides: Martinez seems to have been wearing a cloak of competency that's spectacularly fallen off this season! Good players, poor team.

Man Utd 2-0 Palace

As Liverpool dance their way to a stylish win, Manchester United are seeing out a comfortable win of their own. United are just a point off the top four as it stands.

Martinez needs to go, he has taken the club backwards in the last two years. His 'know how' has run out when it comes to getting the results Everton should be getting.

Tom, London

This is abysmal from Everton. It's Wigan all over again. Thank God we have enough points. Martinez has to go or change his philosophy. Rubbish.

Ole stuff at Anfield. this will hurt every Everton fan inside Anfield and beyond. No signs of fight or passion to be honest. No organisation. No chance.

GOAL - Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Philippe Coutinho (76 mins)

Help yourself, it's a buffet at the Everton defence. Philippe Coutinho picks up his paper plate, swerves the quiche and then bends in a belting drive from 25 yards into the bottom corner. 

Daniel Sturridge is trying to claim that he got a touch to that. If he did it was unintentional...

'Total shambles'

Liverpool 4-0 Everton

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton winger on BBC Radio 5 live

"Everton's defence are just running around chasing the ball. It is like kids. James McCarthy has to try and get hold of the back four. 

"It is such a poor night for Everton. A total shambles from Everton tonight. This could be five or six and James Milner has been outstanding."

MISSED PENALTY

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Troy Deeney steps up - Adrian pushes it away! Poor penalty. 

PENALTY TO WATFORD

Referees clamping down on holding? Angelo Ogbonna has his arms around a defender and the penalty is given...

Liverpool 3-0 Everton

This is embarrassing for Everton. In their biggest game of the season they've got a left-back at right-back, two midfielders in defence and they are just chasing the ball around. 

When Joe Allen can have six touches inside the penalty area without being tackled you know you've got problems.

Joe Allen again! Shot blocked. Does anyone else fancy a go...?

Please, please, bring back Moyes to Goodison! We were verging on top 4 before he left!

Mori walking off the pitch beating his badge like he knows what this game is about. No one accepts that behaviour, show some respect - what a disgrace.

From Mo, Manchester

No wonder Derby Day intensity is disappearing. Crunch someone like that and show passion afterwards and you're a criminal.
