Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Player ratings as Iwobi’s side frustrate Salah’s Red
Everton produce a battling display to frustrate Liverpool in 242nd Merseyside derby which saw the Reds drop further points at the start of the new Premier League season.
After conceding first in eight of their last nine games, Liverpool were far from their best in the first half – and were fortunate not to extend that statistic when Tom Davies hit the post.
Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz both struck the woodwork within the same phase of play shortly before the interval, with Jordan Pickford getting his fingertips onto Nunez’s looping shot.
Everton thought they had taken the lead on 69 minutes when Coady tapped home Neal Maupay’s cross-shot but VAR ruled out the goal after a lengthy delay.
The excellent Pickford touched Mohamed Salah’s stoppage-time effort onto the post but Jurgen Klopp had to settle for a point which leaves Liverpool in fifth place ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures.
Everton rise to 14th and have now failed to win any of their first six matches of a Premier League season for only a third time, also doing so in 1994/95 and 2010/11 – but the outlook is a lot more positive following their latest draw, their fourth in succession.
