Jordan Pickford saves from Mo Salah

Goalless draw in Merseyside derby leaves Reds a point behind Manchester City

Everton stopped Liverpool from reclaiming top spot in the Premier League with a hard-fought goalless draw at Goodison Park.

Liverpool had the best chance in the first half but Mohamed Salah was stopped by Jordan Pickford when through on goal.

After the break Salah again had a chance, but a last-ditch challenge from Michael Keane denied him.

In similar fashion, Fabinho seemed destined to score from a Virgil van Dijk knockdown, but Lucas Digne intercepted just in time.

Everton came closest when substitute Richarlison's low cross was narrowly missed by Bernard.

A fourth draw in six PL matches leaves Liverpool second on 70 points, one behind Manchester City.

Everton are 10th on 37 points.
