The Toffees found themselves 1-0 down after just two-minutes after Liverpool’s Sadio Mane fired the Red half of Liverpool into an early lead.

Liverpool can perhaps consider themselves extreamly unlucky not to have already been awarded a penalty after keeper Jordan Picked clattered into Virgil Van Djik just moments later.

However, a VAR inspection ruled Liverpool’s captain as marginally offside which resulted in play continuing without a penalty.

At the turn of the 20-minute mark, Everton’s Keane rose highest from a James Rodriguez corner to power the ball past Adrian and in turn, claw his side all square at 1-1.

Game on.
