Everton's derby drought goes on after Liverpool stalemate

Seamus Coleman has called on Everton to beat Liverpool after 16 meetings without a win

It's half man of the match poll and half power ranking, and we want to use it to find out who you think played well after each Liverpool match and, at the other end, who you'd maybe like to see given the next game off. I am absolutely OK, it's not the best day in my life but let's carry on.

The 231st Merseyside Derby didn't live up to expectation as Everton and Liverpool served up a boring, uninspiring and goalless draw.

Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 games in all competitions against Everton (W8 D9) - their longest ever run without defeat against their Merseyside neighbours.

Manager Liverpool FC, Jurgen Klopp seemed quite confident about his team sans its stars, against the Toffeemen.

Liverpool: Loris Karius 7, Nathaniel Clyne 7, Dejan Lovren 6, Virgil van Dijk 7, Ragnar Klavan 6, Georginio Wijnaldum 7, Jordan Henderson 6, James Milner 7, Danny Ings 5, Dominic Solanke 6, Sadio Mane 6.

The first half was a quiet affair at Goodison, as Liverpool looked to counter the hostile atmosphere with sustained possession and a steady build up in their attacking play.

Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain evaded challenges in the 70th minutes and shoots from the edge of the box.

Everton defenders Leighton Baines, Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka will be pleased to have kept a clean sheet in front of the worldwide coach, albeit against weakened opposition and not completely assured in their work. It was like a different Everton team for the last 15 minutes.

Calvert-Lewin blasted off target one minute later as the spoils were shared, doing little for either side - although Liverpool will be delighted to avoid any injuries ahead of a massive game against City on Tuesday.

Jamie Redknapp has told Sky Sports that he couldn't believe Everton did not use Theo Walcott more against Liverpool.

Even though Everton did enjoy bursts of pressure, Cenk Tosun was a frustrated figure up front for the most part.

Liverpool had enough chances to get a win but failed to finish when it counted most.
