Everton 1 Liverpool 1: Player ratings as Simon Mignolet stars

Player ratings as Liverpool play out a 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park

Everton

Tim Howard Not the most-assured performance from the Everton goalkeeper. Should have claimed the cross which led to Ings’s opener. 5/10

Tyias Browning Another dependable performance. Doing well in the absence of Seamus Coleman. 7

Phil Jagielka The Everton captain showed his experience and ability to read the game with a number of important interceptions. 7

Ramiro Funes Mori The Argentinian defender wasn’t overly tested as his fellow South American Coutinho had a quiet day. 7

Brendan Galloway Didn’t wilt under derby-day pressure. The teenager looked comfortable at full-back, perhaps aided by a narrow Liverpool front-line. Great tackle to deny Ings in the second half. 7

James McCarthy His controlled but powerful shot from inside Liverpool’s area required a full-stretch save by Mignolet. Booked for a foul on Milner. The Irishman was ever-present. 8

Gareth Barry A solid performance from the Premier League veteran. Called on his experience to keep Everton ticking over. 7

Gerard Deulofeu Posed a threat down the right up against lightweight Moreno. Did deliver the cross which led to Can’s poor clearance and Lukaku’s leveller. 6

Ross Barkley Fortunate to escape a booking after kicking the ball away. Quiet performance, which perhaps led to his emotions boling over in a scrap with Can. Picked up a caution for the incident. More involved after half-time. 6

Steven Naismith Denied a 27th-minute opener by a world-class save from Mignolet. Naismith was subdued. 5

Romelu Lukaku A quiet 45 minutes before Can’s poor clearance gave an open invitation to Lukaku to level – and he did just that. 8

Liverpool

Simon Mignolet (Man of the match) Instinctive save to deny Naismith at close range. Minutes later, the Liverpool No1 made another top-class save to push McCarthy’s powerful drive wide. 8

Emre Can The German made a couple of important interceptions. However, his composure evaporated as the first half came to a close and booked following a clash with Barkley. His hashed clearance fell to Lukaku, who levelled. 5

Martin Skrtel Soldiered on despite an apparent hand injury in the first half. Offensively, a constant nuisance at set-pieces. 6

Mamadou Sakho Allowed Naismith to escape his attentions but bailed out by a superb Mignolet save. As is often the case with the bulky Frenchman, a couple of cumbersome touches almost put the Reds in trouble. Well-timed tackle on Lukaku in the second half. 6

Alberto Moreno Criminally turned his back on Delofeu’s cross in the lead up to Lukaku’s equaliser. Did pose a threat going forward. 6

Nathaniel Clyne As we’ve come to expect eight games into his Premier League career, Clyne rarely puts a foot wrong. In that sense, it as a trademark performance at Goodison Park. 7

Lucas Leiva His misplaced pass almost led to an immediate response from Everton after Ings’s opener. Otherwise, utilised his derby experience. 6

James Milner Wasted the best chance of the first half for the visitors. Certainly earned his corn as captain, acting very much as the peace maker in a fiercely-contested derby. 7

Philippe Coutinho Brilliant reverse pass to send Milner through on goal. Otherwise, he as disappointingly quiet. 5

Daniel Sturridge Jagielka was one step ahead of the Liverpool striker in the first half. Didn’t have much of an impact on the derby, unlike previous games. 6

Danny Ings Couldn’t keep on early attempt on target. Scolded by Sturridge for lacking the vision to pick his strike partner out on the counter, but scored moments later from a corner. 8
