“Good result all things considered”, “On to the proper stuff” – Fans react to Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool and Everton shared the spoils in a low-key and uneventful goalless draw in the 231st Merseyside derby battle on Saturday afternoon.

Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Premier League, Goodison Park
April 7, 2018

Jurgen Klopp’s makeshift and heavily depleted Reds showed impressive spirit and resilience to battle to a point at Goodison Park.

It was one of the most low-key derby games in living memory, with little goalmouth action at either end, and the atmosphere more reminiscent of a first round League Cup fixture.

This certainly suited Liverpool, with what is to come on Tuesday night, and the point is a useful one given the circumstances.

Here’s how supporters reacted to a subdued derby-day showdown across social media and on our forums.


Supporters felt it was a positive result and praised the Reds’ efforts…


“I’ll take it. away draw playing a large number of squad players without injury or suspension.”

Semmy on the forums.





But some were unimpressed with certain incoming Reds and discussed a lack of depth…

“My only conclusion is thank goodness we have Mo Salah. We would be pretty toothless without him.”

Rambler on the forums.


“Had our front 3 played, we could have murdered them. This goes to show that our squad needs depth and decent quality to see out weaker teams.”

IndianScouser on the forums.


Attentions swiftly turned to Tuesday’s far more important fixture…


“Roll on Tuesday. That is all.”
