Wasn’t that a body blow?Winning comfortably with two minutes to go, then Benayoun gives away a needless free-kick.
What happens? The toffee-noses get a goal right at the death and there was no time to get the winner.
So two points dropped, the chance to overtake the dreaded Mancs at the top of the table gone and it feels like we have been relegated!
The match was a hard-fought encounter, Everton went at us from the off, that Neville twit committing foul after foul which went unpunished by the referee.
It was a typical local derby, played at a frantic pace with little flowing football.
Fernando Torres should have scored when put through by Hyypia in the first half, showing he needs match practice.
Thankfully, Steven Gerrard gave us the lead in the 65th minute with a typical long range pile driver.
The whole ground felt that was it, the winner. How wrong we all were sadly.
Cahill’s late header was enough for them to steal a point they didn’t deserve.
So now we are level on points with the dreaded Man Utd and they have a game in hand, so it wasn’t a good night at all.
We have a chance for instant revenge again on Sunday in the FA Cup at Anfield and I, for one, am hoping we give them a right good hiding!
