Everton vs Liverpool: Merseyside derby ends goalless draw

Everton held Liverpool to a goalless draw during their frustrating journey to the blue half of Merseyside, hindering their early-season progress in the Premier League

When Tom Davies hit the upright in the first half, the Toffees came agonisingly close to opening the scoring 

Late in the second, Frank Lampard's team also believed they had scored, but a VAR review disallowed a Conor Coady goal for offside 

Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz both hit the woodwork for the Reds in rapid succession throughout the first 45 minutes, proving that this was not a one-sided game

In the fifth minute of added time, Mohamed Salah followed suit as Liverpool came agonisingly close to winning 

As a result, even if neither team would prefer the outcome, both may feel they earned their point 

Liverpool's shaky start to the season, during which they have already lost a lot of ground to the early leaders, was prolonged by a stalemate 

Everton also had to decide whether to accept a fourth straight league draw, which would drop them to the bottom of the Premier League standings 

It was a genuine derby, Klopp added, "very intense and full of absolutely beautiful moments."

Additionally, Klopp added, "I think we hit the post three times and there were a few unbelievable saves from Pickford. Wow, what can you do?”
