It was far from a great showing by manager Marco Silva’s side in the Merseyside derby on Sunday, but Everton can certainly feel aggrieved at losing out to rivals Liverpool when it came to the points.
The hosts at Anfield had the better possession and overall chances across the 90 minutes, but we restricted them to only three shots on target – the same number we had in the game – and had it not been for a Jordan Pickford clanger and a bizarre goal six minutes into stoppage-time from Divock Origi we would’ve been talking about a well-earned point, especially as for periods of the game we were on top and the side looking to go for the win.
As it is the 232nd meeting leaves us looking for victory once more, but there are plenty of positives to take when you remove the emotion and anger as Jurgen Klopp’s completely ungentlemanly conduct takes the headlines.
Whoscored weren’t great with their player ratings given our efforts (in my humble) and only digne got into the 7’s with his star man rating from the day.
Bernard, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Idrissa Gueye, and Seamus Coleman completed the top five on the day but it is a game we should’ve got more from but I guess fans should look on the bright side.
