Liverpool Send Key Pair For Scans To Assess Injuries After Everton Draw

Liverpool face Ajax in the Champions League next week, before then playing host to Chris Wilder's Sheffield United in the Premier League. "I think this game is going to help us to make a step forward".

Stand-in skipper Raheem Sterling scored the only goal as Manchester City returned to winning ways in their Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Elsewhere, Chelsea conceded late to draw 3-3 at home to Southampton while Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola got the better of former assistant Mikel Arteta in a 1-0 win over Arsenal.

The visitors were handed a golden chance to take the lead from the spot after VAR awarded them a penalty for Jamal Lewis's challenge on Marcus Rashford but Karl Darlow dived to his right to save Fernandes's 58th-minute spot-kick.

Bruno Fernandes made amends for missing a penalty by scoring a brilliant go-ahead goal for Manchester United in its come-from-behind 4-1 win at Newcastle.

"They were a hard team to break down, really well drilled and made it hard for us. We have come up to the speed of the game and that showed today".

Klopp was mystified that Henderson's potential victor in added time against 10-man Everton was ruled out for a barely perceptible offside decision against Sadio Mane.

Liverpool were left frustrated after a 2-2 draw at Everton in the Merseyside derby on Saturday with VAR ruling out a potential victor from Jordan Henderson in stoppage time and key defender Virgil van Dijk suffering a knee injury.

Everton remain top of the table on 13 points, three ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

Liverpool, with Thiago Alcantara at the heart of everything, were back in front with 18 minutes left when Mohamed Salah volleyed in Yerry Mina's poor clearance to set up a frantic finale, with only Pickford's magnificent save from Joel Matip's header keeping Everton in the hunt.

The centre-back was injured in a collision with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and had to be substituted off.

While the challenge could quite easily have been worthy of a red card, the fact that Dutch defender Van Dijk was penalised for offside by his arm in the initial phase of play meant Pickford didn't even receive a caution.

Richarlison was shown a straight red card for a risky tackle on Thiago in the 90th minute before the VAR drama in the final seconds.

Van Dijk has now gone for a scan at a hospital to see how serious the knee issue is.

Southampton came from behind twice at Chelsea despite Timo Werner scoring two skilful individual goals for the home side, his first strikes in the Premier League.

Frank Lampard's rallied immediately to regain the lead, Werner teeing up Kai Havertz for a neat dinked finish to make it 3-2.
