Brendan Rodgers not happy with derby draw (Liverpool 1-1 Everton).


Brendan Rodgers showed his disappointment with a point after Phil Jagielka’s late equaliser refused Liverpool a derby victory over Everton.

Liverpool posed more threat as the game started with Adam Lallana`s display and Mario Balotelli missing a some half-chances.

However, it was Steven Gerrard, who had been criticised recently about his below-par displays, that broke the deadlock with a free-kick in the 65th minute giving Liverpool a 1-0 lead.

Liverpool looked to finish the game with a victory over Everton before Phil Jagielka`s long range strike in the dying minute.

“The players were brilliant. We were clearly the dominant side in the game, but sometimes you don’t get what you deserve in football,” Brendan Rodgers told BBC Sport.

“But for a wonder-strike at the end of the game we would have got the three points.”

“Balotelli should have scored. There was a touch on it [his shot] but I think he will think he should have scored. He had some exceptional touches in the game.

“We should also have had a penalty. If the Gareth Barry handball was not a penalty then you won't see any penalties all year.

“But they get their point and we are happy with the performance, if not the result.”
