Lovren slammed by Liverpool fans following penalty blunder against Everton

For 76 minutes of the Merseyside derby, there was only one team in with a chance of victory.

Liverpool dominated their rivals Everton at Anfield with wave upon wave of attack.

It took 42 minutes for Jurgen Klopp’s side to find the breakthrough as Mohamed Salah hit a glorious strike that curled into the top corner past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Everton struggled to muster an attack and in the end they created just three shots compared to the Reds’ 23.

After the final whistle, though, the Toffees were the happier side as they managed to pick up a point thanks to Wayne Rooney’s equalising penalty.

The referee pointed to the spot after Dominic Calvert-Lewin went to ground under the challenge of Dejan Lovren.

The Liverpool centre-back appeared to nudge the Everton forward while having both hands on the player’s arms.

It was a bitter blow for the Reds, especially the fans, who took to Twitter to hit out at the Croatian.
