Everton may still be without a victory in a Merseyside derby for a decade - but they will happily take this point against Liverpool after an afternoon of chaos and controversy at Goodison Park.

Liverpool still carried the greater threat and will believe they should have been given that late goal - but Everton will be happy with a point.

There was much to be positive and optimistic about for Everton here - more of which later - but there is no doubt luck was on their side this time and the helping hand of the video assistant referee and its operator David Coote was at their shoulder.

Liverpool will feel luck denied them victory but Everton will gratefully accept their slice and believe this represented another step in their learning process and development under their decorated Italian manager.

This is because Liverpool are the best side they have played this term but Everton also showed grit when in the past they may have collapsed.

Honours were even although there was plenty of acrimony and debate afterwards - with Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti clearly happier than their counterparts, who were also furious after a late challenge by Richarlison injured Thiago Alcantara and brought the Brazilian striker a red card.

Ancelotti would have preferred Everton to win but they undoubtedly have something about them this season and while it is stretching the imagination to still see them topping the table as the Premier League season reaches the sharp end, they are unrecognisable from the shambolic final few games of last term.
