The Merseyside derby ended in controversy.

Draw (2-2) between Everton and Liverpool in this Saturday’s derby at Goodison Park for the fifth round of the Premier League.

Sadio Mané brought the reds ahead in the third minute, with Michael Keane leveling at 19 ‘. In the second half, Salah put the visiting team in the lead again, at 72 ‘, and Calvert-Lewin fixed the final result, at 81’.

However, the match would end in controversy: Richarlison was sent off after a tough entry and, already in the period of discounts, Henderson scored, but the move was canceled after the referee’s appointment, which detected Sadio Mané’s irregular position. A move that promises to make a lot of ink flow and that motivated protests from Liverpool players.

André Gomes started the host side, with Diogo Jota entering the second half.

Everton maintains the leadership of the Premier League, with 13 points won in five games played. Liverpool have 10 points.
