Slow start for Liverpool

The Merseyside derby ended with a goalless draw.


Surprisingly, Mohamed Salah was left on the bench for the game against Everton on Sunday. The Egyptian is not in a good condition to start yet and Klopp decided to left him out.


Both teams were unable to produce any attacking danger during the first half and they went in the dressing rooms goalless.



Roberto Firmino wasn't at his best at this derby, as he couldn't manage to create something meaningful and he was subbed in the 65th minute of the second half by Divock Origi.


In the 61st minute, Dominic Calvert-Lewin cut Liverpool's defence with a great through ball to Richarlison, but the Brazilian couldn't convert this chance into a goal.



Everton came to life just 10 minutes before the full-time. Richarlison delivered a teasing cross into the box, but Calvert-Lewin's shot was parried by Alisson Becker, who couldn't hold onto it.


Tom Davies saw the huge opportunity to score, but his shot hit the post.


After the draw Liverpool need just 5 points to be crowned champions of the Premier League for the first time in 30 years.
