Liverpool, Everton draw blanks in Merseyside derby

They couldn't make the breakthrough, though, and after surviving a very late push by Everton both sides head home with a point after one of the more forgettable Merseyside Derbies in recent seasons. I am absolutely OK, it's not the best day in my life but let's carry on. Manager Liverpool FC, Jurgen Klopp seemed quite confident about his team sans its stars, against the Toffeemen.

But Juergen Klopp's side still had the better of the game with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford pulling off impressive first-half saves from Dominic Solanke, James Milner and Virgil Van Dyke.

"It's good to get a save like this but the most important thing for us [was] to get a clean sheet because the back four was new with Clyney coming back in after a long time and Klavan is not [usually] a left-back". The fact that he made five changes to his starting XI showed where his priorities were.

Everton stay ninth and are now nearly certain to miss out on a place in the top seven, meanwhile, as their winless streak against Liverpool - stretching back to October 2010 - was extended by a further match. The Englishman was making his first start of the season after recovering from injury.

Without star man Salah, the Reds struggled to break down a dogged Everton defence and were hanging on at the end as the Toffees twice went close to a late victor.

His lawyers put out several statements saying they were filing injunctions in hopes of keeping him out of jail. He is facing accusations of corruption and money laundering.

In the 23rd minute, Yannick Bolasie nearly gave Everton the lead as he cut in from the left only to see his curler tipped behind by Loris Karius in goal for Liverpool.

Calvert-Lewin blasted off target one minute later as the spoils were shared, doing little for either side - although Liverpool will be delighted to avoid any injuries ahead of a massive game against City on Tuesday. "In the game, you just try and help the team", Karius told Sky Sports in his post-match interview.

Liverpool fans were not celebrating either, but at least they are likely to get another chance to do so come Tuesday.

Karius, who faces constant speculation that Liverpool will replace him in the summer, said he did not feel under pressure to keep his place.
