10 stats from Everton 2-2 Liverpool
Everton dropped their 100% winning start to the 2020-21 Premier League season with a controversial 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime.
The defending champions were twice ahead, through goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, before Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin both headed home equalisers for the hosts.
Liverpool would be robbed of all three points due to a controversial VAR decision to rule out Jordan Henderson’s goal for offside, despite the replays showing Mane to be onside.
