Jurgen Klopp believes Everton had more chances in the Merseyside derby and Liverpool were lucky to leave Goodson Park with a point.

The match between Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds ended in a goalless draw only after Tom Davies hit the post in the 80th minute.

Liverpool dominated the game but failed to hit the net, however, Klopp says he was pleased with what he saw on the day.

"It was a real fight, both teams invested a lot," he told Sky Sports.

"Both teams showed that they understand it's a derby. Even without a crowd it was intense, physical. It was all in. All players were really involved and in the game.

"I liked our defending, our counter-press was good. We won a lot of balls. We didn't have enough chances for the possession we had.

"Most of the time we were dominant but then they had the biggest chance. It came out of the blue and we were lucky in that moment.

"Apart from that we were in control but we want to have more chances ourselves."

The German added: "We have to be more clear in the situations, pass the ball and shoot in the right moment, more crosses in the right area.

"After 60, 70 minutes I could see it was better, we were finding the right spaces.

"Everton defended really well, they tried to take care of Sadio and Trent [Alexander-Arnold].

"We were then not smart enough to use the space you have if one player like Coleman plays completely against Sadio."
