Classic Derbies: Kan Stuns Kop

Winger makes himself an Everton hero in November 1995.

Inspiring victory at the home of your fiercest rivals is the stuff cult heroes are made of – step forward Andrei Kanchelskis.

The winger’s fearless style was always going to make him a favourite at Goodison Park, so a brace – his first ever goals for the club in his first ever derby – made him a terrace icon very early in his Everton career.

Having started the 1994/95 season slowly, the Blues went into the fixture off the back of a much-needed 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers, in which the performances of wingers Kanchelskis and Anders Limpar hinted at better times ahead.

And so it proved as the Russian maestro hit a second half brace to render the Kop mute and hand the Blues a first derby win away from Goodison since October 1987.

His first goal was a powerful header while his second – a fierce drive at the end of a jinking run – was vintage Kanchelskis.

Robbie Fowler grabbed a late consolation but Joe Royle’s excellent record against the Reds was underway.

In his two and a half years as Everton manager, Royle’s sides were never beaten in a derby. The Toffees went on to finish sixth.

Danny LogueA great player, one of my all time favorites. I forgot we finished 6th, maybe we were better than I remember us being in the nineties. A note to the current squad - the Dogs of War won the FA cup in '95. We may have a stronger squad now, but those lads brought us silverware home. No pressure.

Mikel ArreguiIt was the first derby I could see on tv!!! Though not live, I had to wait impatiently withouth having a look at the teletext not to know the score till they finally aired it a few days later. It was great, it made my love for Everton grow even more. Great memories :)
