AJ's double sinks Liverpool as Blues romp home in September 2006.

It was a day Andrew Johnson would never forget – and one which Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina couldn’t forget quickly enough.

Evertonians had started the 2006/07 season with high hopes – the acquisition of striker Johnson bolstering hopes of another impressive campaign under manager David Moyes.

So when Liverpool arrived in September, there was an air of expectancy at Goodison.

Yet what unfolded that day must have surprised even the most ardent of Blues fans as Moyes’ side romped to a historic 3-0 victory.

At the time it was Liverpool's first defeat in 18 games and only their second in 14 derbies. It was also Everton’s most impressive winning margin in a derby since a 4-0 triumph at Anfield in 1964.

It was Australian midfielder Tim Cahill who set the ball rolling, steering past Pepe Reina on 24 minutes.

Johnson made it two before the break and the striker, who had become Everton's record signing just three months earlier, put the icing on the cake deep into second-half injury time when he capitalised on a jaw-dropping howler from Reina to nod home.

Callum Hughesi would love a 3-0 win on saturday thank you
