Liverpool's hopes of taking a morale-boosting victory into the FA Cup final were dashed thanks to a 1-0 home loss to Fulham on Tuesday, improving Everton's chances of finishing above its Merseyside rival in the Premier League for the first time since 2005.
Everton drew 1-1 with Stoke in the night's other match, putting David Moyes' team three points above Liverpool with two rounds remaining.
Martin Skrtel's own goal in the fifth minute means Liverpool have won only five of 18 matches at Anfield this season, a ground once seen as a fortress in the 18-time champions' heyday.
Everton was denied victory at Britannia Stadium when Cameron Jerome scored in the 69th for Stoke, canceling out Peter Crouch's own goal a minute before halftime.
