Gary Lineker responds to Liverpool FC's 2-2 draw at Everton

Liverpool Training Session- Thiago Alcantara

Reds captain Jordan Henderson revealed that Pickford, who was not even booked for the challenge, had sought him out at the final whistle, asking him to pass on an apology to Van Dijk.

Everton did finish the game down to 10 men as Richarlison was shown a straight red card for another unsafe lunge, this time on Thiago Alcantara.

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford somehow escaped a red card for a wild, out of control challenge on Virgil van Dijk in the ninth minute that left Liverpool's defender limping away painfully to the treatment room.

Everton will be satisfied, and with good reason, at the character they showed, the threat they now possess up front, the menace and class provided by James Rodriguez and the fact that in derbies not so long ago a blow like Mohamed Salah's second goal for Liverpool would have finished them mentally and physically. The blues are top of the table, and undefeated this season, whilst the champions will be looking to bounce back from a 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa before the global break.

But Everton has enjoyed an impressive resurgence this season under new coach Ancelotti and found itself on top of the Premier League after four matches. It was a late, reckless challenge and one that caused the Dutch defender's knee to twist awkwardly, with his foot caught in the turf.

Everton then drew level in the 19th minute when Michael Keane headed home an equaliser for the home side.

The England worldwide goalkeeper came charging off his line to wipe out van Dijk with a high scissor tackle inside the six yard box following a sixth minute free-kick.

But it was Liverpool who remained the more unsafe side for the remainder of the first-half.

Everton's Brazilian forward Richarlison was sent off in the 90th minute after a wild challenge on Thiago Alcantara.

But just when Everton was looking the most likely to take the lead, Liverpool stunned the home side as Mo Salah brilliantly smashed home the loose ball after Yerry Mina's botched attempt at a clearance.

Liverpool are to seek an official explanation for the two controversial VAR incidents which overshadowed Saturday's 2-2 Merseyside derby draw against Everton at Goodison Park, sources have told ESPN.

With a man advantage following Richarlison's dismissal in the 90th minute, Liverpool pressed to find the victor and thought it had secured all three points at the death.

Things started well for the visitors as Liverpool opened the scoring inside the first three minutes as Sadio Mane lashed into the top corner from close range to make it 0-1 after being teed-up by Andy Robertson.
