Everton defender Seamus Coleman was left frustrated after his side played out to a draw against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.

As Liverpool are prioritizing their upcoming Champions League second-leg clash against Manchester City, the derby gave the Toffees a good opportunity to get one over their city rivals.

However, it was Jurgen Klopp’s side who was dominant on the day. Everton only seemed to come to life during the final 15-minutes but Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun went on to miss the chances which they managed to create.

The club have now not defeated Liverpool during their past 17 encounters against them.

Seamus Coleman said about the game: “We felt Liverpool would be happier than us with a point but we started slowly and did not get to grips with the game. But in the second half, we got tighter, pressed people more and played on the front foot. We are disappointed not to have come away with more after the chances we had at the end. Dominic is disappointed but he will work on that and I could have maybe got my toe on one at the end. It was a clean sheet against a good Liverpool side, though, and to get the fans behind us we need to play from the first minute. They react to us and if we are getting in amongst people you can see how positive the atmosphere is. Our two center-halves were very good. Jags (Phil Jagielka) was immense and played a like a captain and leader. We owe it to ourselves and the fans and everyone at the club to finish as high up the table as we can.”
