Everton failed to win again in the English Premier League on Saturday, but will likely be happy settling for a point against in-form Liverpool at Goodison Park.
The goalless draw was a fairly drab affair for such a passionate derby fixture and with one eye on Manchester City mid-week, the Reds rested a number of key stars.
Everton weren’t exactly the most expansive of attacking teams across the 90 minutes but defended their goal well, with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford only having to be called upon a few times.
When the 24-year-old was tested though, he delivered and for Toffees fans it’s been a consistent sight throughout the season.
Many have taken to social media to pay tribute to his debut season at Goodison Park in the wake of the result, with some believing they would be much further down the table if not for the England international.
Should he be considered as England’s number one?
Imagine if we never had Pickford we would be bottom 3 no doubt #EFC

If we didn’t have Jordan Pickford, I dread to think where we’d be this season #efc

Just imagine where we’d be without Pickford this season…
Smart reactionary save from a good opportunity for Solanke. Everton need to break pressure here. #efc

The first and most obvious positive is Jordan Pickford. He's been by far our most consistent player this season, we'd be in a bad place without him. Even though the defence has left him exposed he's still come up with some sublime saves and kept us in games. pic.twitter.com/HMGGD5prU1

Jordan Pickford is an absolute boss. Best 30 mil we’ve ever spent and should walk into England’s goal
