MORE VAR CONTROVERSY IN MERSEYSIDE THRILLER
A thunderous Merseyside derby saw Everton and Liverpool share the points in a 2-2 draw but VAR once again reared its head as Liverpool were denied a late winner by the thinnest of margins. Sadio Mane put Liverpool ahead in the 3rd minute but the Reds lost the services of Virgil van Dijk soon afterwards following a reckless challenge by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford. Michael Keane evened matters in the 19th minute with a firm header but Mohamed Salah’s 72nd minute strike restored Liverpool’s advantage. The prolific Dominic Calvert-Lewin brought Everton level with nine minutes remaining before Richarlison contrived to get himself sent off in the last minute for a wild lunge on Thiago Alcantara.
