Liverpool 1-1 Everton: Video Highlights

liverpool everton Liverpool 1 1 Everton: Video Highlights

The fourth round FA Cup match between Liverpool and Everton ended in a 1-1 draw on Sunday at Anfield — the second draw between the two Merseyside clubs in less than one week.

Everton scored the opener in the first half after Liverpool was again guilty of poor defensive marking from a set play. This time, Everton’s Tim Cahill was unmarked in the box to head the corner goalward into the path of Joleon Lescott whose header diverted the goal into the net.

In the second half it was again Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard who rescued the home club with an all important equalizer after a deft touch from Fernando Torres who knocked the ball into Gerrard’s path. The Liverpool captain then calmfully slotted the ball toward the net underneath Tim Howard, who should have saved it, to make it 1-1.

This was a game that Liverpool dominated but yet again failed to win. Everton fans were jubilant at the end of the match, and the replay will now be played at Goodison Park ten days from now. The winner will face the winner of the Doncaster versus Aston Villa replay.

In controversial circumstances, Robbie Keane was not named in the Liverpool squad that faced Everton and wasn’t even included on the substitute’s bench. When interviewed about the decision before the game, Benitez was asked whether he believed Keane would be a part of Liverpool’s future. Benitez replied, not very confidently, “I think so.” These words will do nothing to give Keane confidence and will fuel speculation that perhaps Keane’s days at Anfield are numbered. If Tottenham Hotspur wants to bring Keane back to White Hart Lane, they may want to give Liverpool Football Club a phone call in the next few days.
