Pickford's knee-high lunge at Van Dijk came seconds after the center back was adjudged to have been narrowly offside as a cross came over to him.

Despite Everton being top of the table heading into the game, it was Liverpool FC who took the lead in the third minute thanks to Sadio Mane's shot into the roof of the next.

Everton was eventually reduced to 10 men late in the game, as Richarlison was shown a deserved red card for a reckless challenge on Thiago.

Premier League leaders Everton twice came from behind to level in an absorbing contest at Goodison Park.

Adrian was held responsible by many for Liverpool's exit from the Champions League last season and he was again shaky when the Reds suffered a shock 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa this month.

The incident raised further questions about the temperament of Pickford, the England worldwide who has been at fault for some goals conceded by Everton in recent games.

Good afternoon! Welcome to the live blog for the Merseyside derby, it's been a while but Everton are quietly fancying themselves today.

"I've seen the disallowed goal at the end and in the picture, I saw it wasn't offside". While it was questionable goalkeeping from Adrian, van Dijk's presence may also have been missed. After receiving treatment, van Dijk was forced off with a knee injury following the high tackle and had to be replaced by Gomez. A towering header from Michael Keane!

Yet another glorious cross into the box this time found Richarlison, but the Brazilian forward could only direct his header onto the outside of the post.

Liverpool were humiliated 7-2 by Aston Villa just before the global break but they quickly set about putting things right when Mane scored in the third minute, firing home a low cross from Andy Robertson.

With a man advantage following Richarlison's dismissal in the 90th minute, Liverpool pressed to find the victor and thought it had secured all three points at the death. However, after a lengthy VAR consultation, Mane was deemed to be offside by the finest of margins.
