It ends Everton 0 - 0 Liverpool.  Certainly not a classic, but some chances for both sides.

07 Feb 21:19
There will be three added minutes at Goodison Park.   Will we see a goal?
07 Feb 21:19
90' - Everton looking for a winning goal, Coleman and Lennon combine, but Mingolet collects Lennon's cross from byline.
07 Feb 21:16
88' - Liverpool attack immediately down the other end and Gerrard steers a shot wide of the left hand upright.
07 Feb 21:16
87' - What a save by Mingolet!  Coleman in space on the right unleashes a right footed howitzer, but the Belgian produces a fine save.
07 Feb 21:15
86' - Everton substitution. Alcaraz replaces Besic.
07 Feb 21:14
86' - Everton substitution. Barkley replaces Naismith.
07 Feb 21:13
85' - Sturridge and Gerrard combine with the Liverpool captain finding Lambert in the box, he turns quickly and shoots, but straight at Joel.
07 Feb 21:12
84' - Lambert has a shot blocked by the Everton defence.  Will there be a late goal at Goodison?
07 Feb 21:11
82' - Liverpool substitution.  Lambert replaces Sterling.
07 Feb 21:08
78' - Henderson and Naismith are booked after becoming involved in a tussle between Ibe and Besic.Typical derby! Besic also goes in the book for the initial foul.
07 Feb 21:06
76' - This time Lukaku gets the better of Can but Henderson with a lung busting run tracks back to force a corner.  Lennon shoots wide from the resulting corner.
07 Feb 21:03
74' - Long ball by Everton towards Lukaku, Mingolet comes off his line but Can intercepts.  The German is having a fantastic game, very composed in defence.  Looks a great signing for Liverpool now that he has settled in.
07 Feb 21:02
73' - Free kick to Liverpool after Ibe is brought down.  Gerrard over it, but easily cleared by Everton. Oviedo was booked as well.
07 Feb 20:59
70' - Sturridge with a shot, but it is blocked!  Moreno on the follow up, shoots well over.
07 Feb 20:58
69' - Everton with a quick counter attack, but a poor delivery from Coleman on the right again flies out of play. The link up play was superb before that however.
07 Feb 20:55
65' - Coleman swings a cross in from the right, but it is well behind Lukaku.  Good period of pressure by the home side.
07 Feb 20:50
61' - First real attack by Everton this half, but Lukaku is offside.
07 Feb 20:48
59' - Everton substitution.  Lennon replaces Mirallas.
07 Feb 20:48
59' - Liverpool with much of the possession, playing patiently.
07 Feb 20:45
55' - Liverpool substitution.  Sturridge replaces Coutinho.  Unless the Brazilian is injured, that is a strange call by Rogers.
07 Feb 20:43
54' - Gerrard almost scores from the corner with a brilliant volley! Naismith somehow gets his head to it and steers it over the crossbar.  Everton deal with the resulting corner.
07 Feb 20:42
54' - Coutinho and Sterling combine, Sterling shoots from an acute angle and saved by Joel.  Gerrard very unhappy with Sterling, he wanted the ball rolled to him as he advanced into the box. Corner.
07 Feb 20:41
52' - Sterling and Coutinho combine on the break, Sterling shoots with his weaker left, easily saved by Joel.
07 Feb 20:40
Sturridge warming up for Liverpool.
07 Feb 20:39
50' - Liverpool attack, but Gerrard is in an offside position after Coutinho dispossesses Barry.
07 Feb 20:37
