Everton vs Liverpool: Salah's 100th Goal, van Dijk's Injury, Richarlison and Thiago's face-off and MORE! Here are the highlights from thrilling Merseyside derby

Nothing could separate Everton and Liverpool after a thrilling Merseyside derby at Goodison Park in which the Reds were pegged back twice by their hosts.


Sadio Mane got Liverpool off to the perfect start with his third-minute strike, but Liverpool's bright start was brought to an abrupt end with an injury to Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutch defender was clattered into by Jordan Pickford following a corner, but a lengthy VAR check found he was offside in the build-up, ruling out the chance of a penalty or red card being awarded.

And Michael Keane pulled the hosts level just eight minutes later, rising well to head beyond Adrian from a James Rodriguez corner.

Salah restored Liverpool's lead in the second half with his 100th strike for the club only for the in-form Calvert-Lewin's 10th goal of the season to peg the Reds back once more.

And there was late drama as Richarlison was sent off for a shocking challenge on Thiago before Liverpool captain Henderson thought he won it for the visitors with an added-time strike.

But the Reds were sunk by the finest of margins as VAR ruled Mane was offside in the build-up to the late winner.
