v Chelsea

Saturday 30 August K.O. 17:30

March - 2005

March - 2005

March proved to be a very different month to both January and February.

With just two games scheduled to be played, the Blues were unable to add to their already impressive points total.

A 1-0 home reverse to Blackburn meant that David Moyes' men had lost their last three home games, and gave the pursuing Liverpool a psychological advantage for the Anfield derby, set to follow later in the month.

The Blackburn game was an unattractive one, an observation not aided by the early withdrawal of Mikel Arteta - forced off through injury.

Creativity was lacking, and as a consequence the Toffees were unable to reply to the game's solitary goal, scored by Blackburn's Jon stead.

It was a full fortnight later when Everton crossed Stanley Park to Anfield, hoping for a repeat of the Goodison derby which had heralded such memorable scenes earlier in the season.

Bu it was not to be as first half strikes from Steven Gerrard and Luis Garcia gave Liverpool the initiative, with the Blues unable to salvage the game, despite a late Tim Cahill strike.

The game swung in Liverpool's favour just before the half hour, when a free kick was converted by Gerrard moments before Garcia nodded home after Nigel Martyn had saved.

Everton were now under pressure and somewhat fortunate to stay only two down.

The game changed again as Milan Baros was dismissed for a dangerous tackle on Alan Stubbs, and the Toffees pushed forward.

Tim Cahill scored with eight minutes to go, but there was no way past Jerzy Dudek for the equaliser.

The result meant the Reds had restored parity in the Merseyside bragging rights, and ensured Everton had nothing to show from a miserable March.
