Everton 2-2 Liverpool: VAR denied Reds late winner


Liverpool played out a dramatic 2-2 draw with bitter rivals Everton in an eventful Merseyside derby

VAR denies Liverpool late winner against Everton, ruled out Jordan Henderson's strike.

An engrossing Merseyside derby, shadowed by a comically poor decision, kept Carlo Ancelotti’s side at the summit and three points clear of their nemesis.

10 years to the day since Everton ’s last won against Liverpool with the team looking better than they ever have during this decade but it all ended in a draw, realizing four consecutive full time draws at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

3 minute into the game Andy Robertson had driven past Seamus Coleman and cut back for Sadio Mane to lift the ball into the top left.

But the Toffees bounced back to level up with the help of James Rodriguez' conner kick which was headed past Adrian by Michael Keane in the 19th minute.

Virgil van Dijk was immediately replaced by Joe Gomez in the 11th minute after limping off the pitch.

The final minutes of the game saw the Reds denied a goal tapped in by Jordan Henderson. It followed Calvert-Lewin's header that cancelled Mohamed Salah's 72 minute 2-1 lead.

VAR decision ruled Sadio Mane offside after stepping out the offside position to recieve a pass from Thiago before delivering it low to skipper Henderson for the finish.
