Steven Gerrard admitted that neither Liverpool or Everton deserved to take all three points in the Merseyside Derby, and a share of the spoils was a fair result.
Everton's Marouane Fellaini came closest to scoring in the game when he poked a volley inches past Pepe Reina's post, with the Spaniard left stranded. Everton were right to feel aggrieved about a goal that was ruled out because of a foul however. Blues defender Sylvain Distin was adjudged to have fouled Jamie Carragher when in-fact replay's showed contact was minimal.
Liverpool did have chances throughout the game though, and their best opportunity fell to captain Steven Gerrard who saw his free kick go off target. But the Liverpool legend felt a draw was a fair result.
Gerrard told Sky Sports: "We all wanted a goal, especially for Jamie playing in his last derby.
"I think Everton have improved a lot and they are difficult to beat.
"I think this has summed our season up in a way, we have played well but lacked cutting edge against the teams above us.
"We'll take a point but we are disappointed to not have three."
Liverpool face a near-impossible task in order to catch local rivals Everton, who now sit on sixty points, with reds five points behind with only two games remaining. With games against Fulham and already relegated QPR still to play, Gerrard will hope that Liverpool can end the season strongly.
