Hello and welcome to our LIVE text commentary of the 226th Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton from Anfield. The Stanley Park neighbours face off once again, but this time with plenty of distractions in the air. Everton have Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United to consider, while the red half of Merseyside are preparing for a Europa League last four encounter. As always in these feisty derby affairs, the fans will soon remind the players of the occasion this evening. I'm Pete Hall (@PeteHall86) and I will be bringing you the action, as it happens, live!

The pressure on Roberto Martinez is at its most intense. This was an absolute hammering, and the scoreline does not give a true reflection of Liverpool's domination. Ramiro Funes Mori was given his marching orders when the Reds were already in control. Against 10-men, Liverpool strolled to success at a canter, with goals from Daniel Sturridge and Phillippe Coutinho compounding Everton's misery. Huge semi-final for Martinez to come on Saturday. Thanks for joining us. Full report and reaction to follow on site. Goodbye.

FT: Liverpool 4-0 Everton.
Sturridge has another effort at goal, but Robles easily gets down to save.

SAVE! Sturridge with the most delicate of chips from way out, but Robles back-pedals and tips the ball over.
Lucas never scores, and you can see why. Awful effort from distance!

CLOSE! Lallana does really well to thread the ball through for Coutinho who elects to chip Robles, but just gets too much on it.

Seven minutes of added time here for the injury to Origi.
Everton just chasing shadows. The final whistle will not end their misery. Ibe breaks into the box, but is harshly penalised for a foul.
Still Liverpool treating this as a training exercise. Don't be surprised if they net a fifth.
33 attempts from Liverpool tonight. As comfortable a victory as it gets. So, so easy.
Moreno has a couple of efforts at goal, which both fly over. Target practice for the Reds.
Will he last the week?
Liverpool still on the attack. 13 shots on target to Everton's zero. Baines heads bravely clear.
Liverpool really rubbing it in. Fans are 'ole-ing' everything. Must be so tough to take for the travelling Evertonians.

Final change for Liverpool with Jordon Ibe replacing the excellent Milner. Another fine contribution.
Liverpool come again, with Coutinho having another goal at goal, but this time it is too close to Robles.

Nightmare for Everton. Allen lays the ball across for Coutinho, who shifts the ball out of his feet and smashes it low into the bottom corner.

GOAL! Liverpool 4-0 Everton. Now it is four. Painful for Everton. Brilliant finish from Coutinho.
Liverpool all over Everton here. Toffees are content to run the clock down. Very much damage limitation.
Clyne fires over. No let up from Liverpool here. They smell blood.
