Luis Suarez was the man of the match as Liverpool and Everton shared the points after a thrilling 90 minutes in the 219th Merseyside derby. The Uruguayan striker nearly provided the winner during stoppage time but it was controversially denied. Suarez bagged the opening goal with a shot that came off Leighton Baines and then he provided the second just four minutes later. But Everton fought back and made it all square befor half time through Leon Osman and Steven Naismith. The one point apiece leaves Everton in fifth place while Liverpool can be proud of a four-match unbeaten run.
Luis Suarez made the derby even more exciting in the 14th minute as he bagged the opening goal and then turned for the dugouts to celebrate, pointing in Moyes's direction before throwing himself into the air in a swallow dive and landing on the touchline in front of the Everton manager. The manager stormed out of his seat and a number of items were thrown on to the field in the minutes after the goal, but that was just the beginning of the thriller. Luis Suarez made it 2-0 just four minutes later as he headed home on a Steven Gerrrard trademark pinpoint cross.
Everton seemed down and out but that wasn't the case. The Toffees fought back immediately and Leon Osman pulled one back as he fired home from the edge of the area after goalkeeper Brad Jones punched the ball following a corner kick. Kevin Mirallas created panic time and again on the left flank and nearly got fellow Belgian Fellaini on the score sheet. The equaliser came shortly after the half-hour mark thanks to another run from Mirallas, whose cross hit Fellaini who then squared for Naismith who bagged his first ever goal for the club.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers sent in Raheem Sterling at half time and the 17-year old stepped into the spotlight right away but he missed a huge chance one-on-one with goalkeeper Tim Howard. Everton also created a pair of chances through Fellaini and Jelavic but Liverpool came the closest during stoppage time when Suarez pushed the ball into the back of he net following a free kick but the linesman ruled it out. The replays have shown that there was no offside on that particular play.
Bet365 have Everton at 150/1 to win the Premier League this season while Liverpool are priced at 200/1.
