Surely that’s Pickford’s last chance. He should have got a red and the VAR saved him after he should have stopped Henderson’s weak effort.

Everton getting the benefit of ref decisions in a derby? This is is crazy season.

Yeah, the reds got some tough calls against them today. That's the way it goes sometimes I guess. Virgil's injury looks to be a bad one too, he could be out for the season. Not a good day for us.

Apart from those two incidents, he did make some very good saves though.

Apart from the VAR mess, it was a cracking game.

I fancied us to get back in it after Van Dijk went off. Matip goes missing and Gomez is all over the place.

Thiago man of the match. Great business there.

Good game. Pickford should have gone.What a great job Ancelotti has done.He has completely turned Everton around.

On a side note I have noticed that Zichi hasn’t been on this site recently. I understand he is a huge Liverpool fan as well.I hope he is OK.

Good to see you back. Jurgen give you a call, did he?

I thought Richarlison had broken Thiago's leg. Shocking challenge. But Liverpool as usual the perennial victims. You're current champions and World Club champions so try looking on the bright side of life. Liverpool fans the new Man Ltd fans maybe...?

Maybe Klopp can convince the league to create it's own Liverpool-biased VAR? LAR..? Alright LAR.. The rest of the league has to put up with the ludicrous offside geometrics so why not Liverpool as well. And Liverpool play to those hairline diagonal lines and have been the biggest goal-hangers under the offside rules.

I thought Gerrard had returned to the derby in a blue shirt for a second.

Virgil van Dijk is a pillar of strength for club and country. Wishing the ace defender a speedy recovery and a quick return to the starting line-ups.
