Liverpool dropped further points at the start of the new Premier League season as Conor Coady was denied a fairytale winner by VAR during a frantic 0-0 draw at Everton.
After conceding first in eight of their last nine games, Liverpool were far from their best in the first half – and were fortunate not to extend that statistic when Tom Davies hit the post.
Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz both struck the woodwork within the same phase of play shortly before the interval, with Jordan Pickford getting his fingertips onto Nunez’s looping shot.
Everton thought they had taken the lead on 69 minutes when Conor Coady tapped home Neal Maupay’s cross-shot but VAR ruled out the goal after a lengthy delay.
The excellent Pickford touched Mohamed Salah’s stoppage-time effort onto the post but Jurgen Klopp had to settle for a point which leaves Liverpool in fifth place ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures. Winless Everton rise to 14th after a fourth consecutive draw.
