Everton 2-2 Liverpool: 'Toffees lucky but show grit in draw'

Everton 2-2 Liverpool: 'Toffees lucky but show grit in draw'”

Everton had a major let off moments later when Virgil Van Dijk was on the receiving end of a unsafe late lunge from Jordan Pickford as a free-kick was swung into the box.

Henderson snapped afterwards: "It must be offside because the VAR that everyone wants said it was offside".

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's nine goals have been a major part of Everton's flying start to the season, but the newly-capped England worldwide missed a huge chance to put the home side in front as he failed to connect with Lucas Digne's low cross five minutes into the second-half.

Liverpool were smashed 7-2 by Aston Villa in their last game before the global break, but started like a side keen to make amends.

The incident was replayed and McManaman, who was on commentary for the game, told viewers: "I have to turn away".

Everton, meanwhile, were top of the table after having won all four of their games in the top flight under Carlo Ancelotti this season.

Pickford escaped a red card and Liverpool missed out on a certain penalty after van Dijk was flagged offside in the build-up so the resulting tackle had to be ignored.

To add to Liverpool's disappointment, they suffered an injury to key defender Virgil van Dijk which forced the Dutchman out of the game in the 11th minute.

This is because Liverpool are the best side they have played this term but Everton also showed grit when in the past they may have collapsed.

Everton then drew level in the 19th minute when Michael Keane headed home an equaliser for the home side.

Plenty of us who thought Calvert-Lewin would struggle to score enough goals to make it into the top echelon are now gorging on humble pie, as he scored his 10th goal for Everton in all competitions this season to secure this point.

Yet another glorious cross into the box this time found Richarlison, but the Brazilian forward could only direct his header onto the outside of the post.

The Reds were able to get another goal, thanks to Mohamed Salah's brilliantly struck half-volley in the second half.

Liverpool FC took the lead in the third minute at Goodison Park when Sadio Mane fired Andy Robertson's low cross into the roof of the net.

Jordan Henderson thought he had secured the three points with a late victor, but it was ruled out for offside.

It was a fitting end to a tight and, at times, controversial Merseyside derby.
