    ‘CLOSE TO WINNING’

    Following the draw, Toffees boss Ancelotti said: “Honestly, we were really close to winning but it was a tough game, difficult game.

    “We performed really well. We were focused, we sacrificed. We had opportunities to score at the end.

    “Liverpool played a good game, they had more possession but defensively we were really good.

    “Offensively we tried to build from the back. They pressed really high and it was difficult to find a solution from the back so we decided to play more long ball.”

    ‘A STEP CLOSER’

    Van Dijk told Sky Sports: “It was very intense. Both sides created small opportunities, they had the big one against the post.

    “Everyone is just happy to be back, we didn’t lose and it is another point towards our goal.

    “It was tough. No one knew what to expect, it was good to be back out there.

    “It’s a step closer. We will try and improve.”

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin:

    On the chance he had late in the game: “It was just instinct.

    “We had a few chances but it wasn’t our day today.

    “Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don’t.”

    On the performance and match sharpness: “I thought we defended very well.

    “It wasn’t as sharp as you’d expect. some players are a little bit rusty and my timing was a little bit off.

    “We’ll take the point but i thought there was a big chance there for us today.

    “A draw was a fair result.”

    A fairly entertaining clash sees the points shared here at Goodison.

    It was a game of few opportunities but Tom Davies had the chance of the game when he smashed a shot into the base of the post on 79 minutes.

    You sense both teams will happy with the result which leaves Liverpool top and the Toffees move up to 12th leapfrogging Newcastle who thrashed Sheffield United earlier in the day.

    Liverpool could win the title in their next game against Crystal Palace if Man City don’t win and if not, they could win it at the Etihad when they face them in the following game.

    85. BOOKING – ORIGI!

    Cynical foul on Coleman after he intercepted a pass and tried to launch a counter attack.

    Hauled the Irishman down and Mike Dean brandishes the yellow.

    EVERTON 0 – 0 LIVERPOOL

    81. CHANCE!

    Richarlison broke into the penalty box down the left hand side and with three Blue shirts lining up in the middle he inexplicably shot from a tight angle.

    Easy save for Alisson at his near post.

    Awful decision from Richarlison. Would have been a certain goal if he’d passed.

    EVERTON 0 – 0 LIVERPOOL

    80. CHANCE!

    Calvert Lewin this time.

    A corner swings all the way over, flicks off a head in the middle and a flying Calvert-Lewin gets his head on it at the far post but it goes wide from close range.

    Everton really going for the winner here!

    EVERTON 0 – 0 LIVERPOOL

    79. CHANCE!

    TOM DAVIES HITS THE POST FOR EVERTON!

    Richarlison down the left played it across to Calvert-Lewin, he flicked it towards the bottom corner, Alisson made a great save but only parried to Davies on the right corner of the six-yard-box.

    And the midfielder’s right foot shot swept across the goal and cannoned back off the base of the post.

    71. Joel Matip is down injured.

    It looks like a heel problem. He’s currently getting treatment.

    Oh. Wait. No. Scrap that. He’s up again but Dejan Lovren looks like he is getting ready to come on.
