    • - Thanks for joining me this evening; make sure you stick around for all the latest news from the Premier League.
    • 90 FULL-TIME: The final whistle goes; Cahill grabs the late equaliser. The faces of the Liverpool players says it all; they have wasted another chance to keep pace with the leaders.
    • 89 Manchester United and Chelsea will be celebrating this result after their late, late wins this weekend.
    • 88 The Liverpool fans are leaving early; they won't be happy with another poor performance.
    • 87 GOAL! CAHILL! Great delivery from Arteta...Cahill makes a near-post run...and his flicked header flies past Reina and into the goal!
    • 86 Everton win a free-kick when Benayoun clumsily trips Anichebe...right on the edge of the box.
    • 85 LIVERPOOL SUB: Lucas comes on to replace Torres, who can rest his hamstring for the final five minutes.
    • 84 GOOD CHALLENG! Benayoun shows good defensive awareness to put in a challenge on Pienaar as the midfielder looked to get on the end of a through-ball.
    • 83 FINALLY, AN EFFORT! Osman drives in a well-struck effort on goal from the edge of the box as Skrtel stands off him...easily saved by the keeper.
    • 81 Liverpool will go back up to top with this victory, but their title rivals are unlikely to be shaking in their boots after another drab performance.
    • 80 ...good delivery into the box from Arteta...but Reina comes out and punches clear.
    • 79 Everton win a free-kick when Benayoun trips Baines down the Everton left...
    • 77 This match has become very drab; Everton don't want to commit players forward, Liverpool are just happy knocking the ball around.
    • 76 Everton have a spell in the Liverpool half...although they just can't get a decent delivery into the box.
    • 74 Everton seem clueless as to how to get themselves back into this...although, to be fair, they don't actually have the man-power to make any significant changes.
    • 72 Liverpool are knocking the ball around comfortably now; they are taking the sting out of the game. No ambition to get a second; they just want to hold on to what they have.
    • 71 Liverpool have absolutely dominated the second half without looking like they were about to take the lead; Everton don't look to have the means to get themselves back into this.
    • 70 Gerrard rescues Liverpool for the umpteenth time! The relief is amazing around the ground.
    • 69 GOAL! GERRARD DOES IT! The Liverpool legend picks the ball up, 30 yards out...and slams a low drive inside the post! GREAT FINISH! WONDERFUL GOAL, AND ANFIELD ERUPTS!
    • 68 Webb turns down another penalty claim when Anichebe goes down after a fine run, cutting in from the left.
    • 67 LIVERPOOL SUB: Keane is replaced by Benayoun; interesting switch.
    • 66 Some awful defending in the Everton box as they fail to clear a low ball in...Baines manages to scramble clear.
    • 65 Alonso tries to spread the play out wide to Kuyt, but Baines reads it and slides the ball out of play.
    • 64 Pienaar's low cross from the left is well dealt with by Skrtel, chesting the ball down before clearing.
    • 62 Anichebe is limping around, but Moyes hasn't really got too many attacking options on the bench.
    • 61 Liverpool have been awful today...really dreadful...completely out of ideas on how to break Everton down.
    • 59 OVER! Torres has enough of Liverpool's pointless build up and opts for a first-time shot...hooked over the bar from 25 yards.
    • 58 SWAN DIVE! Kuyt goes down after running on to a fine stabbed pass from the full-back...again the referee turns down the penalty shouts - and correctly, too.
    • 57 Good spell of pressure from Everton, but they are just unable to get their shot away on the edge of the box.
    • 56 BLOCK! Fine defending from Baines...Gerrard's low shot is palmed into a dangerous area by Howard...Baines brilliantly blocks Hyypia's follow-up effort from close range.
    • 55 Liverpool win a corner when Torres sees his cross blocked by Lescott...
    • 54 ARETEA! The Spaniard goes for goal...the ball goes through a crowd and skips up off the turf...but Reina is easily behind it.
    • 53 Free-kick Everton when Skrtel pushes Cahill as they contest a high ball from the keeper...45 yards out...
    • 52 Liverpool's build up is very slow...there is a real lack of urgency...
    • 51 Alonso crosses high for Torres to attack the header...but the ball loops tamely to the keeper.
    • 50 Areta is shown the yellow card for tripping Kuyt...free-kick, way out on the right touchline...
    • 49 PENALTY? IS IT? NO! Torres is bundled over in the box...but referee Webb emphatically turns down the strong appeals. I've seen those given, you know...
    • 48 Baines fires across a low cross from the left...Anichebe seems to be able to get on it...but Reina collects.
    • 47 Nice one-two between Carragher and Alonso...but the right-back's cross is really poor and drifts out of play.
    • 46 The snow is pouring down at Anfield as the second half kicks off...
    • 45 HALF-TIME: Goalless...Torres had the best chance to win it, but stabbed his effort onto the post from close range when it looked easier to score.
    • 44 CLOSE! Riera flashes a drive inches wide of the post after some careless play on the edge of the box by Everton.
    • 43 Everton win another corner when Anichebe chases down a lost cause, centres the ball...Hibbert collects on the right...and his cross is deflected behind.
    • 42 Osman drives a low shot in on Reina's goal...comfortable save from the keeper.
    • 41 The league average is 26 fouls per Premier League game; we are already approaching that figure and we haven't reached half-time yet.
    • 40 Nasty clash of heads between Anichebe and Alonso leaves both players collapsed on the ground.
    • 39 Jagielka is doing a superb job on Torres...another big tackle on the edge of the box prevents an attack down the left.
    • 38 Reina rather makes a bit of a mess of claiming the corner...the ball goes through his hands...but Kuyt clears at the back post.
    • 37 Everton win a corner when a cross is headed behind by Skrtel...Baines trots over...
    • 36 SPILLED! Reina drops a cross from the right...but gathers at the second attempt. Thankfully for the keeper, there was no Everton man to take advantage.
    • 35 Everton have barely had any of the ball inside the Liverpool half...they haven't really threatened, apart from the Cahill header.
    • 33 Gerrard finds Alonso...he tries to thread a pass through a blanket defence, but the ball is cut out...Everton making it very tough for Liverpool.
    • 31 Liverpool look to be trying to get on with things, despite all the fouls and stoppages...they are taking plenty of quick free-kicks, trying to keep the tempo high.
    • 30 Kuyt is penalised for jumping into Jagielka as they contested a bouncing ball...
    • 29 It was such a good chance for Torres...usually he would have put that away...this time he found the outside of the post.
    • 28 WHAT A MISS! Torres gets through the middle...shows good strength to hold off his man...but when faced with Howard manages to stab wide.
    • 27 The first yellow of the night goes to Pienaar for fending off Riera as the winger looked to get away from him.
    • 26 FINE SAVE! Hibbert swings in a cross from the right...wonderful leap and header from Cahill...Reina gets down to tip the effort out for a corner.
    • 25 STUNNING RUN! Torres brilliantly takes on three men down the right before attempting to tee up Gerrard...shot blocked.
    • 24 Free-kick Liverpool when Jagielka barges his way through the back of Keane...moments later, Skrtel comes through Arteta for another foul...typical derby performance...very gritty and scrappy.
    • 23 Jagielka shows good pace to hold off Torres and see the ball back to his keeper as the striker tries to knock the ball around him and sprint on through.
    • 22 Neville gets a talking to after a collision with Kuyt; the Everton man is holding his arm, gingerly...free-kick and no booking.
    • 21 Alonso seems to have played in Riera down the left...but the Spaniard miscontrols and allows the ball to run away from him for a goalkick. A pity, because that was a good position had he managed to collect the ball.
    • 19 Liverpool have just been unable to really get going in midfield as yet; Everton are swarming around them very well.
    • 18 Cahill tussles with Skrtel down on the byline...both players hit the deck...goal-kick. Moyes is up on his feet in the technical area, directing his players.
    • 17 Ian Rush is spotted in the crowd...he scored an incredible 25 goals in this fixture for Liverpool.
    • 16 Keane tries to play in Torres when Everton again give the ball away in their own half...the visitors are playing a dangerous game.
    • 14 Everton give the ball away very sloppily in a dangerous spot...Riera immediately tries to get the ball into the middle for Keane...but his pass is cut out.
    • 13 Lescott is down taking treatment; he seems okay.
    • 12 OOH! The ball scuttles its way through a crowd to Kuyt at the back post...but his stabbed effort is blocked by Baines.
    • 12 Another free-kick in a dangerous spot for Liverpool after Arteta trips Gerrard...almost identical spot for the set-piece...Gerrard over it again...
    • 11 ...Poor delivery from Gerrard, who fails to beat the first man.
    • 10 Liverpool win a free-kick when Lescott trips Alonso...dangerous spot for a set-piece...40 yards out, left of centre...
    • 9 Torres picks the ball up and turns 30 yards from goal...he looks keen on a shot...until the ball is nicked from him by Lescott.
    • 8 The game has settled down a bit after a frantic start...Liverpool still look keen on an early goal to settle their nerves.
    • 6 Keane twists and turns down the right and eventually gets his cross in...headed clear.
    • 5 Neville is penalised for jumping into Gerrard in the air...that gets the crowd going...
    • 4 A win would put Liverpool back on top...Reina comes through a crowd a long way to claim a long ball into his penalty area.
    • 3 Wasted cross from Alonso, who overhits his centre by a long way.
    • 3 TESTER! Reina has to come through a crowd to punch clear a high ball tossed back into the box...the referee comes to his aid with his whistle.
    • 2 OOH! Great early effort from Anichebe, who hits an early volley on the turn from 25 yards...just palmed away by Reina.
    • 1 WE'RE OFF!
    • 0 The players are out...the handshakes have been made...and we're about to get underway...
    • - Everton, who have gone nine hours without conceding a goal, are without the suspended Marouane Fellaini. Young striker Victor Anichebe came into the side.
    • - The teams are in...and Keane and Torres both start up front for the home side...Rafa has finally relented and gone for broke with his two expensive forwards.
    • - Hi there; welcome to the Liverpool derby. It's nicknamed "the friendly derby" although in recent years it's got a bit tasty.
