Liverpool 0 Everton 0: match report

Liverpool and Everton cancelled each other out in a forgettable 220th Merseyside derby bereft of incident. The draw may have strengthened the Toffees' chances of finishing above their near-neighbours for the second successive season - something which has not happened since 1937 - but they rarely came close to ending a 14-year winless run at Anfield. Midfielder Marouane Fellaini had the visitors' best chance, volleying wide from close range in the first half, while Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard saw Sylvain Distin clear off the line after the break. However, just three bookings in a game which has seen 20 red cards in the previous 41 meetings indicated a lack of bite. Sixth-placed Everton, five points ahead of their near-neighbours, did not have enough in their locker to end their drought on enemy territory and Jamie Carragher, on his 30th and final Merseyside derby before retirement, had one of his quieter afternoons.
