Minute   Description
That brings an end to our coverage of the Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield. Thank you very much for joining us. Goodbye!
Liverpool travel to Burnley next time out as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Everton, meanwhile, host Newcastle at Goodison Park as they hope to bounce back from tonight’s defeat.
90'+7 FULL TIME: LIVERPOOL 1-0 EVERTON
90'+6 GOAL! In the final seconds of the game Origi heads the ball home from a matter of yards to surely win the 232nd Merseyside derby for Liverpool. Van Dijk tried his luck with an audacious volley from the edge of the box which Pickford failed to deal with and Origi was there to nod it home. Wow!
90'+3 There’s a brief stoppage in play as Gueye is down and requires treatment.
90'+1 The visitors make their final change as Zouma replaces Sigurdsson. Three minutes to go.
90' Four added minutes.
Sigurdsson receives a yellow card for pulling back Robertson when he was looking to launch an attack.
89' Everton make their second change of the evening as Calvert-Lewin replaces Bernard.
88' Gomes picks up a yellow card for a late foul on Wijnaldum.
86' The home side work another quick counter-attack through Origi this time. The Belgian drives down the right flank before whipping in a low cross which Keane is forced to turn behind with Mane lurking.
84' Firmino is replaced by Origi as the hosts make their final change. Just over five minutes to go.
82' Sturridge launches a wonderful through-ball for Firmino to chase and the Brazilian holds the ball up well before firing in a low cross towards the back post. Nobody was arriving for Liverpool and the ball rolls behind for a goal-kick.
80' Gomez receives a yellow card for cynically pulling back Richarlison as the Brazilian looked to launch a counter.
79' Everton are looking to push forward as we head towards the final stages of the game. Bernard is continuing to look a threat down the left-hand side, but Alexander-Arnold has so far dealt with him well.
77' Fabinho goes into the book for a late challenge on Richarlison just inside the Everton half.
75' The hosts make their second change of the match as Sturridge replaces Salah. 15 minutes to go.
71' Liverpool make their first change of the evening as Keita replaces Shaqiri.
70' The away side have a free-kick from the left down by the touchline, but Digne’s ball fails to cause any issues and Gomez easily gets the ball to safety.
67' Everton come forward again with Bernard down the left-hand side. The Brazilian looks to cut inside but his right-footed effort goes wide of the far post without troubling Alisson.
65' After some bright play down the right flank, the ball drops to Sigurdsson following a cross into the box and his strike from distance is easily saved by Alisson. Still 0-0.
63' Walcott has not looked entirely comfortable out there following that earlier knock and has now been replaced by Lookman.
62' The game is beginning to open to open up now and Liverpool are able to work a quick counter-attack. Mane drives at the Everton defence from just inside of their own half before looking to slot the ball in behind to Salah, but the linesman has his flag up for offside against the Egyptian.
52' The home side are continuing to keep the ball and work it around nicely in the early stages of the second half. Shaqiri swings in a cross from the right which runs all the way through for Pickford.
46' We’re back underway! The hosts get the second half kicked-off.
The hosts will look to continue in the same fashion in the second half. Shaqiri was integral to everything positive that Liverpool did in the opening half and he will be key as they look for the opening goal. Everton, meanwhile, looked a real threat through Bernard down the left wing and they could get some joy down the flanks in the upcoming half if Liverpool look to push on.
Somehow this Merseyside derby remains level at half time despite a number of glorious chances. Mane had a wonderful chance to give the hosts the lead after 13 minutes, but his volley sailed high over the bar. Gomes then had the visitors’ best chance after 21 minutes but failed to turn home his header from a matter of yards. Pickford was on hand to deny Shaqiri when one-on-one after 35 minutes to ensure that the score remained level at the break.
45'+1 HALF TIME: LIVERPOOL 0-0 EVERTON
45' One added minute at the end of this half.
43' Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick from the right is poor and Sigurdsson can easily head it to safety. It remains 0-0.
39' Pickford is off his line at lightning speed to deny Mane who looked to be in behind for a strike at goal on the edge of the Everton box. That’s brilliant goalkeeping from the England international.
33' Shaqiri receives the first yellow card of the game for a late foul on Gomes.
32' Liverpool almost manage to get in behind the Everton defence once more. Shaqiri picks up the loose ball just inside of the visitors’ half before sliding it through for Salah down the right. The attacker looks to cut inside, but Digne reads it well to intercept.
30' Firmino tries his luck from 25 yards with a curling right-footed effort, but Pickford is well positioned to easily claim the strike.
28' The home side win a corner from the right which is delivered by Alexander-Arnold. The delivery is overhit but Fabinho is able to retrieve the loose ball and send in back into the penalty area. Once again however, Keane is able to clear the danger.
27' Digne’s corner from the left is deep into the Liverpool penalty area. Keane rises highest to meet it but his header doesn’t trouble Alisson.
25' Fabinho finds space around 10 yards outside of the Everton box and opts to chip a pass in behind towards Salah. The Egyptian nods the ball down for Firmino but Digne and Keane are quickly onto the Brazilian to win the ball back.
23' The away side have had a couple of good opportunities thus far in the game and are starting to grow in confidence and cause Liverpool a few problems.
19' Alexander-Arnold’s ball down the right is perfect for Salah to chase and the Egyptian is able to cut back and slide the ball into Firmino. From the left side of the penalty area, Firmino’s left-footed strike goes well wide of Pickford’s far post.
17' There was almost an opening for Richarlison but his just lost his footing at the crucial moment. Bernard drove forward with the ball down the left wing before slotting the ball inside and into Richarlison. The Brazilian, from inside the box, took the ball beyond Gomez but just slipped before he could get his shot away.
15' The home side have really grown into the game over the last 10 minutes and are starting to dominate proceedings.
11' From the right, Shaqiri floats in a dangerous cross towards the back post but it is slightly too long for Mane to reach.
10' Shaqiri drives at the Everton midfield in the middle of the park and is able to find Mane in space. The attacker looks to dink the ball over Digne and into the path of Salah, but it is slightly overhit and goes behind for a goal-kick.
8' Mane and Fabinho combine well down the left-hand side before Firmino picks up the loose ball and slides it to his right where Alexander-Arnold is making a bursting run. The Englishman looks to whip his cross into the path of Salah, but Keane covers well and concedes a corner. The resulting corner comes to nothing.
6' Alisson looks to launch the ball long for Salah to chase down the right wing, but Mina is able to get something on it and divert it back to Pickford.
2' Alexander-Arnold looks to launch a long ball over the top down the right-hand side of the field. Pickford beats Salah to the loose ball buts slices his clearance and concedes a corner. The hosts take a short corner from the left and begin to work the ball around.
1' Kick-off! Everton get the game underway.
