Merseyside derby passes without a card - bore draw fails to spark

All game, none of us could understand why they couldn't come down this side. I am absolutely OK, it's not the best day in my life but let's carry on.

Everton have scored just four goals in their last nine top-flight Merseyside derbies, failing to score in five of those games.

Liverpool are now on their longest unbeaten run over Everton, not tasting defeat in 17 games in all competitions against the Toffees, winning eight and drawing nine.

Everton could only manage to pick up a 0-0 draw with Liverpool yesterday.

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.

The first half was a quiet affair at Goodison, as Liverpool looked to counter the hostile atmosphere with sustained possession and a steady build up in their attacking play.

During the last 10 minutes Everton had 12 touches in Liverpool's penalty area, five more than they had in the first 80 minutes.

Liverpool keeper Loris Karius also had to be at his best to deal with a curling shot from the otherwise ineffectual Yannick Bolasie although Everton seldom showed the forward momentum to threaten his goal.

He wasted another golden opportunity in the closing minutes from Theo Walcott's delivery, with Coleman agonisingly close to tapping in at the back post.

"We have now a problem to find players for Saturday, and everyone's telling us it's the most important game of the year, and that's quite hard", said Klopp.

One of the most historic derbies in the English football, the Merseyside derby has ended in a 0-0 draw as both teams struggled to create chances to win the game.

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

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