LIVERPOOL: Two goals from setpieces gave Luton Town their first-ever Premier League victory as they beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park yesterday, lifting the promoted Hatters out of the bottom three and piling on the misery for the Merseysiders.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 24th minute when Ashley Young’s attempt to clear a corner was blocked into the net by Tom Lockyer, and they netted a second from another setpiece when Carlton Morris steered home a freekick with a sumptuous half-volley eight minutes later.

Everton reduced the deficit in the 41st minute with their first league goal at home this season as Dominic Calvert-Lewin bundled the ball home after a goal-mouth scramble, and it was allowed to stand after a long VAR check for offside.

Everton piled on the pressure late on but could not breach the Luton defence again, and the visitors held on for a win that lifts them to 17th in the table on four points, one place behind Everton on goal difference.
