Everton 1-0 Liverpool. 28th October 1978.
Afterwards, this game was to be known simply as “the Andy King Derby”. For Everton, it was a cathartic end to a terrible run of results against their local rivals…
Liverpool strutted into this match on top of the league and unbeaten in the derby since November 1971. Andy King changed all this; brilliantly ending the red dominance and seven years of hurt with a scorching 20-yard volley beyond a helpless Ray Clemence.
The 1-0 victory and King’s fantastic goal were greeted with wild celebrations, with an officious policeman bundling our hero away before he could talk to an eager reporter. Sadly, instead of sparking a challenge for the title, Everton hovered in second place before dropping to fourth in the league.
