Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt's fifth goal in a Merseyside derby against Everton ensured the 215th meeting of the two clubs finished 2-2.

Kenny Dalglish's first game at Anfield since returning for a second spell as Liverpool manager got off to a good start when Raul Meireles scored his maiden goal since joining the club in the summer.

Sylvain Distin and Jermaine Beckford turned the game on its head shortly after half-time but Kuyt salvaged a point from the penalty spot when goalkeeper Tim Howard fouled Maxi Rodriguez.
