Saturday’s much talked about Merseyside derby is over. Liverpool and Everton got just a point each after a keenly contested 1-1 draw at Anfield.
The much talked about possible return of Daniel Sturridge was not to be as the English man wasn’t even listed on the substitutes bench but was spotted in the stands. Mario Balotelli led Liverpool’s attact while Romelu Lukaku was Everton’s target man.
The first goal came after 65 minutes through a well taken free-kick by Steven Gerrard. Balotelli had won the set-piece after being fouled by Leighton Baines just outside the Toffee’s penalty area. Gerrard stood up to the challenge and slotted the ball into the right top corner of the post despite Tim Howard’s touch.
At the end of the regular 90minutes,Liverpool must have thought the game was won but were stunned in the 1st minute of injury time when Phil Jagielka’s screamer beat Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet to setup a draw which Everton will definitely be pleased.
