Premier League table-toppers Everton equalized the score minutes before half time through Michael Keane’s header.
Liverpool regained the lead by their Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah who struck in a clinical finish to make the score 2-1 for the Reds.
Everton equalized the score by their on-fire striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, 10 minutes before the final whistle.
Liverpool’s captain Jordan Henderson scored a late goal but the referee disallowed it after checking VAR, which caused much controversy at the end of the game.
“It was the best away derby we played since I am at Liverpool – top football, (we) conceded goals because of the specific strength of Everton.” Klopp said after the game.
