Everton failed to end their ten year streak for not being able to win the city derby against Liverpool on Saturday. The Toffees and Reds ended their match in a 2-2 draw and Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin was left frustrated after his team wasn’t able to beat Liverpool yet again. However, the freshly capped England international was happy enough to see Everton keeping their unbeaten Premier League run active as he praised Carlo Ancelotti.
“In the end [we are happy with a draw] but we’re disappointed that we didn’t kick on at 1-1,” said Calvert-Lewin after the game. “We’d done well to get ourselves back in the game. It’s coming, I genuinely believe it’s coming. I thought today would be the day but not to be. I’m disappointed as I wanted to win the game today.”
“I’m not sure why we came out of the blocks slowly as we’ve been doing well and were confident coming into the game but it shows that we’ve made strides to be able to get ourselves back in the game and were unfortunate not to go ahead when Richi hit the post so we had chances to go on and win it but we didn’t take them.”
