One of the best goalless draws. Four efforts against the post, exceptional saves from both goalkeepers, and impressive cameos across the pitch. Goodison Park applauds it’s side off after a performance full of heart and courage.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Everton in Saturday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
Both sides had chances to nick the three points in a typically frenetic clash between the city rivals, with Conor Coady seeing a second-half goal disallowed by VAR for offside and Mohamed Salah striking the foot of the post in the 96th minute.
Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Tom Davies also hit the woodwork in the first half, while Alisson Becker and Jordan Pickford each made crucial saves to preserve their respective clean sheets as the 241st derby ended all square.
After the match Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said”if you cannot win the derby, don’t lose it. We could have won it today but we could have lost it in a few moments as well. If you count the amount of chances we had and the amount of chances they had we would probably have been the deserved winner.”
