Liverpool and Everton share spoils in entertaining Merseyside derby amid further VAR controversy

October 17, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Liverpool and Everton shared the spoils on Saturday in a tense but thrilling Merseyside derby, as Carlo Ancelotti's side twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw.

However, the main talking point came soon after Mane had opened the scoring, as Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford looked set to receive a red card for a late challenge on Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk, but was saved as the whistle had already gone for a narrow offside decision.

Both goalkeepers, Liverpool back-up Adrian and Everton's No. 1 Pickford, have been much-maligned in recent times for a string of poor performances and going into the match many felt an error from either one of them could decide this Merseyside derby.

That certainly looked to be case just moments after Mane had given Liverpool the lead, as Pickford hacked Van Dijk down in the penalty area.

Liverpool looked to be heading for all three points, before Calvert-Lewin towered in the box to head Lucas Digne's cross past the outstretched arm of Adrian to earn Everton a point and retain its place at the top of the Premier League.
