Babel, Garcia and more: Twitter reacts after Everton hold Liverpool

Ryan Babel and Luis Garcia tweet their thoughts after Liverpool drew with Everton

Steven Gerrard was unable to provide Liverpool with a spark of inspiration in what could be his final Merseyside derby after a stalemate at Goodison Park.

Ibe, 19, had the best chance of a tight first half after the Liverpool forward beat Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles but was denied by the woodwork.

Belgium international Romelu Lukaku tested his comptriot Simon Mignolet with a powerful effort after the break, but neither side could conjure a winner.

Here is a selection of our favourite Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order following a disappointing derby.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) gets excited after Jordon Ibe smashed a long-range effort against the crossbar: “IBE!! Incredible” Bloody Effort.

Ex-Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer (@MCATEER4) wants Brendan Rodgers to make a tactical adjustment: “Too much distance between Liverpools front 3 and their midfield. Henderson needs to push forward more”

Former Reds striker Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) is dissappointed with Steven Gerrard’s performance in his 33rd Merseyside derby: “Never seen Gerrard this quiet in any game.”

Retired American defender Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) emphasises just what a drab affair the day’s second derby has been: “Had to wash my hair, anything happening in second half of #EVEvLIV?”

Whilst former Newcastle United striker Mick Quinn (@mickquinn1089) pretty much sums up what we’re all thinking really: “What a shit 224th Derby #DidEvertonthinktheywereawayfromhome”
