Everton captain Phil Neville was ultimately satisfied with a 2-2 draw against Merseyside derby rival Liverpool but thought his side should have capitalised on overturning a two-goal deficit.

Although the second 45 minutes could not replicate the events before the interval, the match ended in controversy when Suarez had a last-gasp goal ruled out for offside, only for replays to show the Uruguayan was in fact behind the last defender.
"I think when we were two-nil down we'd have took a draw but we got back into the game so quickly and we felt we had the momentum," Neville said.
"We maybe should have passed it a little bit better, took that extra touch. I think we needed control of the game in the wide areas.
"These games are fast and furious and you go home later and you analyse whether it was an offside goal.

"I'm glad just to start and to get a goal was nice as well."
