Liverpool (2nd) drew 2-2 this Saturday in the Merseyside derby against Everton, which remains the leader, in a vibrant match that resumed the Premier League on its 5th date after the national team break.
Senegalese Sadio Mané (3) started for the reds, but English Michael Keane (19) equalized for Everton.
In the second half, the Egyptian Mohamed Salah (72) returned to overtake those of Jürgen Klopp, who could not preserve that advantage beyond the 81st minute, when Dominic Calvert-Lewin hung up the 2-2.
Twice the reigning champion was ahead and twice his neighbor revelation equaled him.
Calvert-Lewin remains the Premier's top scorer, with 7 goals in five appearances.
Liverpool stroked victory in the final stages of the derby thanks to a goal from Jordan Henderson (90 + 2), but the referee canceled it for a very tight offside after consulting with the VAR.
With this hard-working draw, which comes after four wins in their first four games, Everton showed that their leadership in the Premier is no accident.
At the moment, the team coached by Carlo Ancelotti leads the table with 13 units, three more than Liverpool, which is provisionally 2nd.
