Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Hits Pickford Wall, Saves VAR


49ERSSPORTS - Liverpool were unable to beat their city rivals Everton in Week 6 of the Premier League 2022/2023, Saturday 3 September 2022. The Premier League match at Goodison Park ended in a 0-0 draw.

Liverpool dominated the game, also creating more chances than the hosts. However, Liverpool failed to pack maximum points. They must be content to share one point.

Liverpool failed to win three successive league wins. After thrashing Bournemouth 9-0 and a dramatic 2-1 win over Newcastle, they are now stuck at Goodison Park.

There are several interesting things that can be discussed from this match. Here's the review.

8 Shots on Target, All Neutralized Pickford
Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford performed fantastically in the match against Liverpool. He seems to be a wall that neutralizes all Liverpool threats.

Liverpool excel in possession of the ball to reach 60.7%. Liverpool are also ahead in the number of shots (23-14) and shots on target (8-3).

Liverpool's eight shots on target in this match were recorded by Roberto Firmino (3), Darwin Nunez (2), Fabinho, Harvey Elliott and Mohamed Salah. Everything was fruitless because it hit a wall called Pickford.

Saved by VAR

The Liverpool goal, which was guarded by Alisson Becker, actually broke in the 70th minute. The ball was nestled in by Conor Coady.

Everton players celebrate with their fans. However, that happiness did not last long.

The referee annulled the goal. From the VAR check, the goal was disallowed for offside. Liverpool saved.

Nunez engine is not hot yet

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp installed Darwin Nunez, who had just come out of a three-match suspension, as a starter in attack. Nunez recorded the highest number of shots in this match, namely six, but only two were on target, and both failed to score.

Having missed three games, Nunez's engine doesn't seem to be really hot after returning to play. Nunez was replaced in the 80th minute.

Roberto Firmino, who came on early in the second half, actually recorded more shots on target than Nunez, namely three shots on target from three shots. However, the scorer of three goals and three assists in the previous two games also failed to find the net against Everton.

This result means Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 12 away games against Everton in the Premier League. However, rather than winning, Liverpool have often drawn results (W3 D9 L0).

According to Opta, the meeting between Everton and Liverpool was even recorded as the party that most often resulted in a 0-0 draw, both in the history of the English highest league (36) and the Premier League (12).

Everton still continue their fast of victory
Everton are still without a single win in the Premier League this season. Frank Lampard's team drew four times and lost twice.
