Jurgen Klopp busted out a typical excuse after Liverpool drew 0-0 away at Everton in the Merseyside derby.

"I think we've done enough to win the game with the chances we've created first and second half, but we'll keep going".

"It's still not over, there's a long way to go, lots of points I think will be dropped at different times", he said. Football is not like that. "We deserved the three points and it says a lot that they are celebrating", Van Dijk said on Sky Sports post match.

At the time of publication City sit top of the table on 71 points, while Liverpool have 69 points but a game in hand.

"I'm completely fine with chasing [City]". We focus on our next game, everyone wants to be top of the league and we can not change the situation at the moment.

The good news for Everton is that they have no real injury concerns ahead of the game, with veteran Leighton Baines being the only player who is definitely ruled out due to a back problem.

Given that Liverpool have surged into the position of title contenders this season thanks to the potency of their front three, it is ironic that they have been let down by a lack of goals when they have needed them most.

Salah has now scored just once in his past six matches and wasted by a distance the best chance for either side from the sort of situation he finished easily in a 44-goal debut season at Anfield previous year. His Manchester City side were up against a Bournemouth who parked an entire fleet of red and black striped buses across the Vitality Stadium pitch.

The Dragon carried 400 pounds of crew supplies and equipment - slightly more than the weight of two astronauts - to the station. No one was aboard the Dragon capsule launched Saturday on its first test flight, only an instrumented dummy.

"We become the chasers now and all the pressure is on Manchester City", Reds defender Andy Robertson said.

"You have to be ready for these chances".

"We take risks but you can not take more than 100 per-cent risks".

FW Mohamed Salah, 4 - He will have nightmares about this game if Liverpool do not win the title. "We will fight for every last ball until the whistle is blown at the end of the season".

Everton boss Marco Silva was pleased with the way his side restricted Liverpool to so few chances. It is OK [the result] - a hard game for different reasons and a wild opponent.

"Our derbies [against Manchester United and Everton] are over and we play all the others now".

We don't expect any changes at the back as the duo of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip are starting to perform well together.

"It was really hard to play any kind of football out there".
