Everton And Liverpool Draw Merseyside Derby

English Premier League
 
Result: Everton 1-1 Liverpool
 
Date: 4 October 2015
 
Venue: Goodison Park
 
The Merseyside derby ended all square on Sunday as Everton drew 1-1 with Liverpool in their English Premier League clash.
 
The Reds were under tremendous pressure in the first half as Simon Mignolet was required to make two top saves to keep the sides level on the scoreboard.
 
In the 28th minute a free kick from Ross Barkley found Steven Naismith whose free header was brilliantly stopped by Mignolet before the goalkeeper pulled off another great save two minutes later to deny McCarthy.
 
The deadlock was broken in the 41st minute as Brendan Rodgers' side took the lead. James Milner's corner kick found Danny Ings unmarked in the six-yard box and he simply headed past a rooted Tim Howard.
 
However, on the stroke of half-time the Toffees were back on level terms. Deulofeu's deep cross into the area was not properly cleared by Emre Can, allowing Romelu Lukaku to pounce and volley into the back of the net.
 
Everton came close to taking the lead for the first time in the 66th minute. Barkley got the ball just inside the Liverpool half and marauded towards goal before shooting narrowly wide of Mignolet's goal.
 
The visitors were fortunate not to be reduced to 10 men in the 77th minute when Lucas produced a professional foul to stop McCarthy, as the Brazilian was already on a yellow card.
