After conceding first in eight of their last nine games, Liverpool was far from their best in the first half – and was fortunate not to extend that statistic when Tom Davies hit the post.
Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz both struck the woodwork within the same phase of play shortly before the interval, with Jordan Pickford getting his fingertips onto Nunez’s looping shot.
Everton thought they had taken the lead on 69 minutes when Conor Coady tapped home Neal Maupay’s cross-shot but VAR ruled out the goal after a lengthy delay.
The excellent Pickford touched Mohamed Salah’s stoppage-time effort onto the post but Jurgen Klopp had to settle for a point that leaves Liverpool in fifth place ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures. Winless Everton rise to 14th after a fourth consecutive draw.
