RESULTS: Premier League March Madness Final Four




 

Everton has its first Merseyside Derby since 2010 thanks to the voters of ProSoccerTalk.

The Toffees' 21-match run without a win over Liverpool "ended" Thursday in Premier League March Madness, the fusion of two of our favorite sporting competitions.

We hinted at this win on Wednesday given the exits of all the Premier League giants besides Liverpool, as supporters of Manchester United, Man City, Arsenal, Spurs, and Chelsea might leap at the chance to take the Reds off any throne.

But to say we saw this margin? The Toffees didn't just beat their rivals; Carlo Ancelotti's men stomped the Reds into online oblivion.

So who will Everton meet in the final after knocking off Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool?

The winner of Sheffield United and Wolves came in nail-biting fashion, the two sides nearly as evenly-matched as their 1-1 draw at the Molineux on Dec 1.

Wolves led for much of the day but saw their lead slip to 50.4-49.6 with minutes left in voting.

At 6:30 p.m. ET, it was dead-even. 50-50.

So we extended voting to extra time, and Nuno Espirito Santo must've deployed a ridiculous substitute because Wolves ran away with the thing to the tune of 59.6-40.4. #Swing.
