Liverpool made a dream start to Saturday’s Merseyside derby when Sadio Mané gave them the lead after less than three minutes.

But the Reds were then dealt a huge blow when Virgil van Dijk had to go off injured following a robust challenge from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Van Dijk was offside at the time so a penalty wasn’t given, and Pickford got away without even a yellow card.

To make matters worse for Liverpool, the Toffees equalised a few minutes later, and then Pickford made an excellent save to keep out a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick.

Get the rave on.
