Seamus Coleman from Killybegs was part of the Everton team that went down 3-0 against Liverpool in Tuesday night’s Merseyside derby.

The 23-year-old played right midfield for the team managed by David Moyes but could do little to prevent the side managed by Kenny Dalglish winning 3-0, with captain Steven Gerrard scoring a hat-trick on his 400th appearance for the Anfield club.

Gerrard opened the scoring with a lofted finish, doubled the lead with a powerful strike and sealed the win by sweeping home from a Luis Suarez pass.

Coleman made only his second start in 10 weeks - having picked up a thigh strain against Tamworth in the FA Cup third round in January - and was replaced by Royston Drenthe on 61 minutes. Everton hope to get back on track on Saturday when they welcome Sunderland to Goodison Park in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
