Wayne Rooney jumps for delight after driving home the equaliser from the spot

 The Liverpool defender needlessly shoved Dominic Calvert-Lewin to the ground and ref Craig Pawson had no choice but to point to the spot.

And Rooney made no mistake as he lashed his 77th minute spot-kick past Simon Mignolet to ensure Everton took a point from the game.

It was a result they had never looked like getting after setting up in one of the most defensive modes seen from a team in blue in a Mersey derby.

Sam Allardyce sent his side out with little ambition to do anything but not concede – and the game turned into example of attack versus defence.

Liverpool were allowed to attack at will, and for long period they struggled to make their dominance show as Everton stuck gamely to the task.

But three minutes before the break Mo Salah broke the deadlock with a brilliant individual goal to show again whey he could be the buy of the season.
