Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a league title is set to go on just a little longer, as Jurgen Klopp’s side were held to a 0-0 Premier League draw at Everton.

Neither side were able to create much in a surreal Merseyside derby, with goal scoring chances few and far between.

Reds defender Joel Matip had the best opportunity of the first half, but his free header inside the box flew well wide.

Liverpool looked sluggish after the break, and it was Everton that carried the greater threat in the closing stages.

But with the game drifting towards a drab draw in the final minutes, there was almost a moment of magic with ten left on the clock.

Lifelong Evertonian Tom Davies thought he’d broken the Toffees near 10-year wait for a derby win as his drive flew past Alisson.

But there was to be no fairy tale end for the Toffees, as his effort cannoned back off the post.

Final score: Everton 0-0 Liverpool
