Despite dominating the game for large spells and taking the lead just before half time via a fabulous strike from Mo Salah, the Reds' wastefulness in front of goal and a needless penalty given away by Dejan Lovren all saw Sam Allardyce's side come away from proceedings with a 1-1 draw.
While Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp was quick to accept responsibility for their inability to see out the game, the decision to award Everton the penalty was slightly higher on his list of grievances.
After it was put to the German that the studio panel believed that a penalty was the correct decision, he sarcastically conceded defeat in the debate.
"Yes. Calvert-Lewin makes a step in this direction and even then there is nothing".
Everton's new boss Sam Allardyce would have felt very happy coming away with a draw especially as it was one of the worst derby day performances from the Toffees' that I have ever witnessed.
This could be a bad flu season
Last year's vaccine was 39% failproof when it comes to all flu viruses and just 32% effective against the H3N2 strains. The Health District keeps a list online of pharmacy and drugstore locations where flu shots are available.
Before finishing the interview, however, Klopp made a point of apologising to Davison for what he had said earlier.
"I know people are saying Liverpool are flying and that, but today we need to be ready for a proper fight. When you stop Liverpool, the top scorers in Europe to seven shots on target then you are doing something right".
"It was an extremely big decision for Craig Pawson and I'm really pleased he's taken the decision after seeing what he's seen and given the penalty".
Klopp had caused some surprise pre-match by putting both Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, who had scored two goals at Brighton and Hove Albion in their previous league match, but he said he was rotating his side with one eye on the busy festive period of games ahead. "Usually you win a game like this with the chances we created".
