The 10-year wait for victory in a Merseyside derby goes on for Everton but they can have no complaints.

Jordan Henderson, Jürgen Klopp and everyone involved in the 237th Merseyside derby thought the Liverpool captain had grabbed a 92nd-minute winner when Jordan Pickford failed to keep out his routine shot.

Not for the first time in the 237th Merseyside derby, VAR proved Everton’s salvation.

Indeed, Carlo Ancelotti’s Premier League leaders will just be grateful to still be unbeaten this season after escaping another stoppage-time loss to Liverpool thanks to VAR.

In the 92nd Henderson thought he had condemned Everton to another stoppage-time derby defeat when he side-footed past the weak left hand of Pickford.

VAR spared Everton a penalty on that occasion, and defeat later on when Sadio Mané was penalised for offside in the buildup to Henderson’s strike.

Pickford should not have been on the pitch to make his latest unconvincing contribution having forced Virgil van Dijk out of the game with a horrendous sixth-minute foul.
