The merseyside derby played out a tepid goalless draw on their return to Premier League action at Goodison Park, delaying the visitors’ victory mood. The Reds went into the game needing just six points to clinch their first Premier League title in 20 over years but were derailed the absence of Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson, registering only one point with five to fight for.
Luck was not really on their side or else, the host who had most of the late minutes chances posed for victory with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies and Richarlison all going close in a matter of minutes. This has complicated the Red’s title race (not minding their 23 points clear-off) the closest rival Manchester City, and they hope that Pep Guardiola’s side drop points against Burnley come Monday Night.
