Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Henderson winner chalked off by VAR in frantic Merseyside derby

Published

Liverpool were controversially denied a Merseyside derby victory as Jordan Henderson saw a late winner ruled out by VAR in a 2-2 draw with 10-man Everton.

Premier League leaders Everton twice came from behind to level in an absorbing contest at Goodison Park.

Michael Keane cancelled out Sadio Mane’s third-minute opener and Dominic Calvert-Lewin did the same after Mohamed Salah scored his 100th goal for Liverpool.

Richarlison was sent off for a rash challenge on Thiago Alcantara and that indiscretion looked to have been doubly punished in injury time by Henderson, only for VAR to intervene and keep Everton three points ahead of Liverpool, who are unbeaten in 23 Merseyside derbies in all competitions, at the top of the table.
