Liverpool’s Goodison Park The Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton ended goallessly.
Everton’s Tom Davies missed a first-half penalty for Everton.
Frank Lampard’s side thought they had scored late in the second, but VAR ruled it offside.
The Reds’ Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz each hit the post in the first half.
When Mohamed Salah scored in the fifth extra minute, Liverpool was so close to winning that it hurt like hell.
Both teams could feel they deserved a point, even though neither wanted it.
Liverpool’s patchy start has cost them ground on the early leaders.
Everton’s fourth straight league draw leaves them in the Premier League’s bottom half.
Liverpool’s performance was better than the result
Liverpool’s failure to win at Goodison Park may have colored perceptions of their performance, but a 0-0 should not mask the fact that this was one of their better showings in a mixed start to the season.
Everton’s Jordan Pickford was named man of the match after stopping all three of Liverpool’s shots on goal.
They limited the hosts to three shots on goal and would argue that Conor Coady’s offside goal was their defensive line doing its job.
Jurgen Klopp will use these positives in upcoming games.
Is Liverpool’s title challenge already over?
Liverpool has lost four of their first six games this season.
Klopp’s side won against Bournemouth and Newcastle, but a draw here will set them back.
With Erling Haaland making Man City untouchable, it’s hard to imagine Liverpool challenging for the title this season.
Maybe the Reds should focus on making the Champions League in May.
Another strange Salah showing
Mohamed Salah had another strange performance, missing a game-winning chance in stoppage time.
The Egyptian isn’t bad, but he spends too much time on the touchline early in the season.
If this is part of Klopp’s new tactical framework, it wastes one of his biggest attacking threats.
The Premier League record-holder for goals in a 38-game season is barely getting near the box, which must be addressed quickly.
