Impressed with Evertons effort today... pressing high and well up for the game, one mistake will win this game

They could be left to rue those many missed chances in the first half.
should be used to it in the derbies at this stage but that is an absolute sickener. To lose like that after playing so well makes it even worse.

Former Liverpool player and manager Graeme Souness said on Sky Sports that Everton deserved a point out of that game. He couldn't understand how Pickford didn't deal with a bit of bread and butter goalkeeping.
Terrible on Everton, I feel so so sorry for them.. oh, no, wait, I don't

Gary Mac, Mane and now Derek Origi. Three absolute classic, harrowing derby day hole-sickenings for Everton. When will their torment end?

"There are all sorts of ways when viewing Evertonís record at this ground. Their last victory had been in 1999 or 7,007 days ago. During that period, more than 200 players have represented them in derbies and none of them have scored a winning goal. And yet, to reduce Liverpoolís dominance over Everton to a 19-year period overlooked a historical pattern in existence since 1962, the year Liverpool became a First Division club again under Bill Shankly. In 56 seasons, Everton had won on this ground just seven times and three of them were in the 1980s, the clubís most recent era of success."

Everton were unbeaten in nine derbies over a five year period between March 1994 and April 1999 when they were a dreadful team.

That dreadful team won a trophy which is more than any Everton team has managed since.

Liverpool were also dreadful though in those years

There was nothing between the teams and Everton actually put in a performance
I'd be confident enough for the home derby

And Andy Carroll in FA Cup semi final and VVD in the Cup last season.
Gary Mac goal probably my favorite. Sunday was class though especially as the Everton fans had just set off a blue flare celebrating a draw at Anfield.. ;D

With all the improvement that Everton have made this year they are only 2 points away from the gap between the 2 clubs for all of last season and we're not even half way through the season and we haven't even been playing well!

And what?  The chatter all week was how Everton were now on a par with Liverpool.  The reality is that they are not.  They are as far away from each other as they ever were and not getting any closer.  I would fancy that when we hit form with the forward line we will pull even further away and 20 points of a gap by the end of the season would not be out of the realms of possibility.

It's fairly undeniable that the Toffees are a lot better than they were last year though. That draw they got an Anfield last year was a disgrace, and probably another nail in Sam Allardyce's coffin.

It depends on how you view Liverpool last year though.

This year Liverpool are doing the right things to go about landing a PL title, slightly tighter at the back, functional enough midfield with the strike force still getting just enough goals to put teams away.

IMO last year Klopp got caught up in the hype of Salah, Firmino, Mane bagging goals for fun, Roberts and TAA bombing forward almost recklessly but still dropping points to teams who sat and soaked up that pressure and struck lucky on a set piece or whatever.
No one saw Salah in particular do what he did last year and maybe its an outlier and he's reverting to sort this year, still a fine footballer all the same.

Everton are now competitive at this level, i.e. they have a go and attack even though the Arsenal game in the emirates where they lost 2-1 and the defeat to Man U they were unlucky in certain aspects of the game but really need an out and out striker to really compete, but I think they're moving in the right direction and are easier on the eye than the stuff Sam was serving up.

Didn't realise Andre Gomes was only on loan, has he been that good all season?

He's only played the last few due to an injury hampering this start at Everton.

On loan with an option to buy if Barca don't decide to take him back.
