Sam Allardyce says Everton 'mastered' Liverpool during the Merseyside derby

Sam Allardyce says Everton 'mastered' Liverpool during the Merseyside derby

Everton's decisive shot on target came on 77 minutes when captain Wayne Rooney powered a penalty kick past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet after Reds centre back Dejan Lovren had fouled Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The hosts were dominating in all aspects and were rewarded by a Mohamed Salah goal before half-time but Lovren's risky decision to put his hands on Calvert-Lewin gave Wayne Rooney the opportunity to make it 1-1 and he duly converted the spot-kick.

Klopp said he felt his side had been the only one playing for the victory and felt the penalty, awarded by referee Craig Pawson was an injustice. You give the penalty then one team can celebrate and we can't.

"I'd be saying: "What [are] you doing?"

Klopp also defended his decision to substitute top scorer Salah with his side only one goal to the good at the time he made the change.

One man who, somewhat unsurprisingly, didn't agree with the decision, however, was Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who simply claimed that 'I don't think it was a penalty'.

Klopp too lost his rag in an incredible post-match interview, blaming the referee then lashing out at the journalist.

'It was a brilliant goal that they scored.

Although Liverpool will be disappointed that they didn't test Everton's Jordan Pickford more than they ought to have, certain groups of fans were curious as to why Jurgen Klopp decided not to start his most fearsome attacking quartet of Salah, Firmino, Coutinho and Mane.

'It's an extremely courageous decision to give that for us in a derby at Anfield and the referee got it right'.
