Result: Liverpool 2 (Gerrard, Luis Garcia) Everton 1 (Cahill).
Baros sent off.
Excellent performance by Liverpool, who get into a huddle at the end, as "You’ll never walk alone" rings out around Anfield. If this doesn’t turn Liverpool’s attitudes into a winning attitude until the end of the season then they will never be winners. Playing with 3 players off injured, another one having to stay on injured, then another one sent off. Liverpool played very, very well, but will be glad of the international break to try and fix their wounded team.
90:00 +3:00 It’s all over.
90:00 +2:15 Liv 2 Eve 1. Everton caught offside. Dudek will take his time with the free-kick.
90:00 +1:30 Liv 2 Eve 1. Liverpool holding on, but this is a long 90 seconds remaining.
90:00 +1:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Carragher clears into touch.
90:00 +0:40 Liv 2 Eve 1. Garcia caught offside.
90:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Three minutes to be added.
89:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. How much time will be added on? A Liverpool fan holds on to the ball in the crownd and Moyes goes over to retrieve it.
88:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Hearts racing all round as Everton attack Liverpool’s goal again. Dudek collects the ball to the relief of the reds.
86:50 Liv 2 Eve 1. Ferguson is spoken to by the referee for the fourth time since he came on. Still no card shown.
85:45 Liv 2 Eve 1. Hibbert clatters Smicer. Everton surround the referee, Ferguson tries to pull the referee back. Hibbert booked, linesman on pitch.
84:30 Liv 2 Eve 1. Everton free-kick midway into Liverpool half. Ferguson receives but heads wide.
83:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Ferguson once again gets away with a foul – this time on Jerzy Dudek. Pistone leaves the pitch to be replaced by Steve Watson, Everton’s final change.
82:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Liverpool start to flap, with the gap down to 1 goal, Liverpool with one player less on the pitch, and no substitutions left.
81:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Finnan booked.
81:00 Liv 2 Eve 1. Everton pull one back – Cahill. Good, well-taken goal, beat Dudek at the near post.
78:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Liverpool now down to nine-and-a-half men. No subs left. No forward on the pitch now as such – the injured Garcia and Smicer – both attacking midfielders really – are the nearest Liverpool have to a striker on the field.
76:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Baros sent off. Baros was trying to block the ball, but running at speed his foot was deemed too high by referee Rob Styles. Alan Stubbs was the player "fouled".
75:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Weir rashly challenges Baros, lucky not to get a second yellow card. Fifteen minutes remain.
74:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Everton get into the Liverpool box, but waste possession eventually with Kilbane’s ball back into the box going out of play.
72:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Pistone and Nunez collide, Liverpool get a free-kick near half-way. Nunez thankfully back on his feet again.
71:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Everton’s first shot on target, from Cahill, saved by Dudek.
70:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Liverpool seem to have got a second-wind now, but the fact remains that Everton are capable of closing the gap. It’s certainly a lively game, even though Dudek has had very little to do so far.
68:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Baros, through on goal again, 1 on 1 with Martyn, did really well, but somehow Martyn finds a way of getting his shoelace to the ball to knock it out for a corner. Corner cleared.
66:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Garcia seems to have shaken off the injury now – or maybe he’s had an injection that’s now kicked in. Carsley penalised for rugby tackle on Biscan.
64:30 Liv 2 Eve 0. Excellent shot from distance by Baros, narrowly over the bar.
63:30 Liv 2 Eve 0. Ferguson spoken to again for throwing his arms into the face of Pellegrino.
62:30 Liv 2 Eve 0. Ferguson penalised for sitting on Carragher in the penalty area.
61:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Excellent run at goal from Nunez, but Stubbs managed to cut it out.
60:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Thirty minutes to go and Liverpool as a team are already starting to look tired. Everton now utilising the "long ball" up to Duncan Ferguson. Liverpool will have a tough half hour now against a physical team in Everton.
57:00 Liv 2 Eve 0. Luis Garcia, struggling with injury, is fouled by Cahill, but referee allows play to go on, frustrating Garcia, who gets a talking to from the ref.
