Draw is a fair result: Klopp

Having won 3-0 at home to Man City in their quarter-final first leg three days previous, Liverpool were much-changed at the weekend, with Klopp making five alterations.

Liverpool started the match far more confidently and had Everton on the back foot.

Klopp, who also revealed he was unsure if Mohamed Salah would be fit for the return leg of their last-eight clash with Manchester City, also commented on the return to fitness of Nathaniel Clyne and Danny Ings.

"It's good to get a save like this but the most important thing for us [was] to get a clean sheet because the back four was new with Clyney coming back in after a long time and Klavan is not [usually] a left-back". The job was to work hard and enjoy the game, really, and then get a result and they were like this.

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.

"Sadio was a threat, especially in the first half". Everton look short of confidence pushing forward against a defence that barely broke sweat all afternoon.

In the 69th minute, Liverpool substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain nearly got the opener as he picked up the ball and burst towards goal only to see his effort go just over the bar.


A fine run from Leighton Baines brought a unsafe cross from the left but Tosun - so often bereft of service - failed to connect in the six-yard box.

A grinding quality from both sides was always likely.

But while his form started well directly after his switch, it has dipped drastically since, and when the 32-year-old was substituted against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Saturday in the Premier League, he reacted by directing an expletive at the manager for his decision.

Liverpool gained control of the game in the opening minutes, pressing Everton back into their own box.

Jurgen Klopp has said Liverpool's performance in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Everton was perhaps the "most mature" of his tenure at Anfield.

The draw means Liverpool are now unbeaten against Everton in 17 straight games in all competitions (eight wins, nine draws).
