Jordan Pickford's outstanding stop for Everton against Liverpool has been voted the September Castrol Save of the Month.

Pickford showed sensational agility to tip Darwin Nunez's shot against the crossbar and out during the first half of the match at Goodison Park.

It was a stunning save that also helped his team keep a first clean sheet of the season as they held their Merseyside rivals to a 0-0 draw.

"The save itself was from a shot after a through ball from Liverpool and I was out of position," Pickford told Everton's official website.

"I've had to adjust quite a lot to make that save and to tip it on to the crossbar was good but I think my movement before that, from a goalkeeper's perspective, to readjust and get back into position was the key to being able to make the save.

"It was just before half-time, so it was a big moment in the game because you don't want to be going in at half-time 1-0 down."

Pickford, who won last season's Castrol Save of the Season award, topped a shortlist that also included another intervention of his to deny Mohamed Salah in the same fixture.

He won after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts.
