Frustration is the word Liverpool fans are repeating the most after the goalless draw against Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. They are still not convinced by the way they played because they were expecting a win against the Toffees who looked like an inferior team. Doubts in the performance of players like Mohamed Salah and in the management of German coach Jürgen Klopp. The injury to Portuguese rookie Fabio Carvalho also has everyone in the Reds worried.

With Jordan Henderson out of the game against Newcastle with a muscle problem, Klopp started Carvalho. The Portuguese rookie made his first start of the season after scoring on Thursday. The first minutes of the game were even for Liverpool and Everton, with Colombian Luis Diaz and Uruguayan Darwin Núnez slow to create danger up front, leaving goalkeeper Jordan Pickford untroubled.

One of the key plays of the Merseyside derby came almost at halftime when Uruguayan Núñez shot inside the box, but Jordan Pickford made a spectacular save. On the rebound, the Colombian Diaz hit it powerfully with his right foot and the ball dramatically hit the post. This was one of Liverpool's clearest of the afternoon.

Egypt's Mohamed Salah had another game without showing his full potential, as with the departure of Senegal's Sadio Mané to Bayern Munich in the summer he is expected to become the big star. The only play he had was until the 94th minute with a strong shot that hit the post in what looked like it was going to be Liverpool's winning goal.

Who was the best player of the match?

The stars of the match were Everton's goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, who stopped all the Reds' attacks. On Liverpool's side, Brazilian goalkeeper Allison Becker also stood out and could do nothing in the goal scored by Connor Coady, which was disallowed for offside. The surprise player at Goodison Park was defender Joe Gomez who played well in defense.
