Merseyside derby: Liverpool, Everton play to a goalless draw. Liverpool, who now need five points to be sure of top spot, can still clinch their first title in 30 years against Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday – but only if Manchester City fail to beat Burnley at Etihad Stadium on Monday.

Everton came close to securing their first Merseyside derby victory in more than a decade – but had to settle for a point against Premier League champions-elect Liverpool at Goodison Park.

The Reds dominated possession against a very well-organised Everton, but it took a superb late save from Alisson to keep out Dominic Calvert-Lewin‘s flick before Tom Davies struck the rebound against the post.

Alisson then saved well from Brazilian compatriot Richarlison as a largely tame game, with the surreal atmosphere of a derby played behind closed doors, sprang to life.

Everton keeper Jordan Pickford saved well from Fabinho’s free-kick in the closing moments but it was a game that highlighted two understandably rusty sides – although Liverpool’s coronation will come soon.
