With Liverpool having at least half an eye on Tuesday's Champions League clash against Manchester City, the Toffees knew what a good chance it was for a first victory over their neighbours in 17 games.
Liverpool team: Karius, van Dijk, Klavan, Lovren, Clyne, Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Danny Ings, Mane, Solanke.
But Jurgen Klopp's side controlled the game until Everton finally created some sustained pressure in the last 15 minutes, with Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin both missing chances. Hitting the thumbs up button is a vote to move the player up the list-or to help keep them on top.
"I don't feel like I am on trial". It's easy to judge it, it was not Danny Ings" best game... that was the most importantly physical, the highest level he could play for ages and together with Dom [Solanke], they didn't play together often so it's not that they know exactly "when I go left, you go right' or whatever, that's all hard. I was just happy to get a fingertip on it.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others posted their condolences . "It is sort of every parent's worst nightmare", Henry said. Postmedia News has confirmed the identities of several others on the bus who died, including head coach Darcy Haugan.

Actually, I have to be happy and take the result - no problem with that.
Wayne Rooney's withdrawal from midfield appeared to improve Everton's attacking play in the second half, but Allardyce cops some blame for a limp and uninspired display from the hosts.
"I make the decisions and I thought we did the right thing to make those changes to give us a better chance", he said.
There have been countless times this season where the former England global has been off the pace and not fit enough to keep up with the rigours of the modern day game - and the Liverpool game was just another example of that.
