Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Reds held to draw on boring derby day

Yannick Bolasie of Everton scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park

Liverpool and Everton shared the spoils after running to a 0-0 stalemate in Saturday's Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, where a second-string Reds lineup nearly succumbed late after dominating most of the Premier League clash.

Cenk Tosun's header narrowly missed the inside of the post and sliding team-mate Seamus Coleman, before Dominic Calvert-Lewin curled over in the final few minutes of Saturday's early Premier league match.

Toffees stopper Jordan Pickford will have done some good to his chances of earning the No. 1 jersey in Russian Federation following a string of saves, pulling off four in total to keep Everton level.

Speaking after the game Klopp revealed he was happy with a point, and admitted his side and been lucky not to concede in the closing stages.

The Reds dominated the opening exchanges of the second half but failed to trouble Pickford, while Wayne Rooney was replaced by Idrissa Gueye after 56 minutes.

The success of "Cleveland" and "Houston" misfire "Golden State"
Asked what he wanted to see, Kerr answered: "Just trying, cutting hard, driving, maybe boxing out once in a while. Only seven teams have beaten them twice - Houston, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Denver, Utah, Portland and Indiana.

Should Jose Mourinho's side win their derby and stop Manchester City claiming the title later on Saturday, they will open up a four-point gap to Jurgen Klopp's side and retain a game in hand.

When asked about his verdict on the result, the Reds shot-stopper expressed,"I thought we did really well first, the start of the second half as well". Despite the late Everton pressure they didn't force the keeper into anything. All game, none of us could understand why they couldn't come down this side.

And let's not forget that the Everton player is the same age as Manchester City's David Silva who plays with an exuberance of somebody much younger. Still, I would say it was a deserved result.

His opposite number, the immensely popular Jürgen Klopp, meanwhile, may have to go into the game without star man Mohamed Salah, who sustained a groin injury on Wednesday night.

For Liverpool James Milner was peppering the goal area with crosses and shots - with Klavan behind him he had plenty of freedom to get himself forward. "Clean sheet, good defending, but last 20 minutes, we need to play and we didn't do that".
