Liverpool and Everton faced each other at Goodison Park this Sunday in Premier League’s Matchday 30. It was quite frankly a technically weak match, that ended up in a goalless draw. Liverpool players looked pretty out of form, and made such basic mistakes, allowing the Blue rivals to threaten Alisson Becker’s goal a few times, including a finish at the post.

The Reds are one step closer to the Premier League title though, as they must win 5 points of the remaining 27 to win the long-waited domestic League title.

In the first half, lots of expectations, mainly from the Liverpool side, who only lost points in two games out of 29 in the Premier League. However, what was seen in the Goodison Park ground was an unrecognizable team.

Jurgen Klopp lined-up the Reds without Gini Wijnaldum, Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino didn’t have their brightest performances either.

Everton gave Fabinho such a hard time, especially through his countryman, Richarlison, who was constantly getting counter-attacks for the home side, but thanks to his lack of clinical edge, Liverpool could go half-time with the clean sheet.

After the break, Liverpool came back slightly better, but still looking reckless, with a floppy midfield, and a non-efficient gegenpressing in the final-three. On 72, Joel Matip had to be subbed off due to injury, and Klopp introduced Dejan Lovren, boosting Everton’s hopes to end a 10-year-winning-feast over their Red rivals.

On 84, Calvert Lewin forced Alisson to make a miracle save, as Davies hit the bost in the rebounded ball.

Liverpool’s most dangerous attempt was on 90+2, as Fabinho took a free-kick and forced Jordan Pickford to palm it away in a corner for the Reds.

Alright, Liverpool looked pretty rusty against Everton, and it doesn’t need to bother, but it’s worrying to see Man City running past their opponents just as if they didn’t have a three-month forced break as the Reds display bad Football.

But they might guarantee the Premier League this upcoming week. All they have to do is either to win both games or to expect Man City to drop points against Burnley or Chelsea.
