Four-goal Merseyside draw

It was an action packed opening 45 minutes that produced four goals, three bookings and plenty of talking points.
An own goal from Leighton Baines in the 14th minute opened the scoring, but Luis Suarez will be trying to claim the goal after he saw his initial shot deflected into the Everton goal by the English left-back.
Jose Enrique broke down the left flank and supplied a well driven cross across the face of the Evertonian goal picking out Suarez at the back post, 16-yards out. The Uruguayan tried his luck from an acute angle but his shot, which appeared to be off target, deflected off the inner thigh of Baines and found its way into the back of the net, 1-0.
Some bad defending six minutes later by the Toffees saw the Reds double their lead and this time no one could rob Suarez of the goal.
Steven Gerrard delivered a free-kick into the box and an unmarked Suarez was left open to head home the ball from 12-yards out, 2-0.
But Everton were not about to lie down and hit back two minutes later through Leon Osman.
A bad mistake from the Reds goalkeeper, Bradley Jones, saw him with a poor punched clearance from a corner as the ball fell to Osman on the edge of the box and he fired it into the bottom left hand corner, 2-1.
And Everton, were not done yet as they levelled matters in the 35th minute with Steven Naismith finding the equaliser.
Marouane Fellaini provided low cross from the left which saw Naismith sneak in at the front post to tuck the ball home from a couple of yards out, registering his first ever goal for the Toffees, 2-2.
The home side definitely finished the stronger of the two sides as the first half came to a close.
The second 45 lacked the excitement of the first as no goals were scored and the only real talking point coming in the third minute of stoppage time after a Suarez goal was wrongly ruled off-sides.
Nonetheless, the game ended all square and Everton moved back up to fourth place with the 2-2 draw.
