3 talking points as Liverpool share the spoils with Everton

Liverpool are now without a win in two Premier League fixtures after Everton came back from behind twice to level to draw 2-2.

Everton continued their barren run against Liverpool without picking up all three points for a tenth year in a row. The Toffees had to come from behind twice against the Reds to settle for a 2-2 draw at the Goodison Park in a match that was no short of drama. A red card for the hosts gave the Reds an advantage in the final minutes, but VAR controversy against Jordan Henderson eluded them of a win.

Sadio Mane gave the defending champions a lead in next to no time, but had his goal cancelled out, thanks to a header by Michael Keane. Mohamed Salah then scored in the second half to give Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead but the Egyptian’s 100th goal for the club was again nullified by a superb header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who ensured a point for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

Here is a look at the three talking points from the fixture.

Adrian was under the scanner when Liverpool conceded seven at Aston Villa a fortnight ago and once again has his name taken for the wrong reasons. The former West Ham goalkeeper let in two goals, both of which could have been stopped had it been for quicker reactions and better reflexes.

James Rodriguez delivered the scoring corner for the first goal very close to the keeper, who should have come to pick it up. At the second instance, Adrian simply dived too late and had not even finished his leap after the ball had touched the back of the net. Alisson Becker will come back to the Reds’ aid, yet, the Spaniard is surely not a reliable backup.
