LIVERPOOL, England, Oct 17 (Reuters) – VAR disallowed a goal in injury time from Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson and the city derby between Everton and Reds at Goodison Park ended in a draw (2-2), with him set of Italian Carlo Ancelotti leader of the Premier with 13 points.
Liverpool, second classified (10 points), sought to recover from the painful defeat of the previous day against Aston Villa (7-2), before the international break. Jürgen Klopp’s men took the field with enthusiasm and Sadio Mané put his men ahead in the 3rd minute.
Michael Kane put the equalizer just a quarter of an hour later (min. 20) at the exit of a corner, taking advantage of the absence of Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk, who had to leave the field injured in the 11th minute.
Already in the second half, the Egyptian Mohamed Salah put Liverpool ahead (min. 72) after a poor clearance by Colombian defender Yerry Mina. But just 10 minutes later (min. 81), Dominic Calvert-Lewin – who already has seven goals so far in the competition – put the final 2-2 with a header.
Herdeson’s last goal was disallowed after a VAR review for a tight previous offside by Sadio Mané.
