Everton deserved to win Merseyside derby, says Jamie Carragher. The hosts had the best chances to win the game late on.
It was a rather uninspiring return to Premier League action for Liverpool and Everton, who played out a goalless draw at an eerily-empty Goodison Park and put a dent in the visitors’ title charge.
In fact, it was Everton who could have dealt an even bigger blow late in the game when Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies and Richarlison went close within a matter of minutes, and Carragher believes the hosts should have taken all three points.
He told Sky Sports: “I thought Everton deserved to win. You can talk about Liverpool having the possession, but it’s about what you create and the chances that you make.”
“Everton allowed Liverpool to have possession because they know they can’t take them on in that type of game. It was easy for Liverpool to dominate possession”
“But when you get that much possession in the opposition’s half, it’s about what you can do with it.”
