Honours shared at Goodison
Luis Suarez was controversially denied an injury-time winner as Liverpool had to settle for a 2-2 Merseyside derby draw with Everton.
Suarez reacted first to fire into the roof of the net with time almost up only to see his effort ruled out by the assistant referee, who adjudged him offside but television replays immediately showed the former Ajax striker was onside.
Leighton Baines turned Suarez's shot into his own net before Suarez headed Liverpool two goals ahead. However, Leon Osman pulled one back almost immediately before Steven Naismith equalised 10 minutes before half-time.
Liverpool opened the scoring in the 14th minute. Steven Gerrard's pass sent Jose Enrique, on his first start since October 2, racing down the left and although his cross flashed through the six-yard area it was collected by Suarez, whose drilled cross-shot return was deflected in by Baines.
His reaction was to race to the dug-out and dive full-length - in a celebration reminiscent of Jurgen Klinsmann's for his debut goal in English football in 1994 - in front of Toffees boss David Moyes after his pre-match comments about players going to ground easily.
Six minutes later Osman's slight trip on Raheem Sterling presented Gerrard with the chance to curl in a free-kick and Suarez's deft header helped the ball past Tim Howard and into the far corner of the net.
But Everton produced an instant response. When goalkeeper Brad Jones, still deputising for the recovering Jose Reina who was on the bench, could only punch a corner to the edge of the area, Osman controlled and volleyed home.
Everton were level when Marouane Fellaini's cross was left by Martin Skrtel and Naismith nipped in front of Enrique to equalise from close range.
Suarez, never far from the action, was fortunate to escape with a yellow card after standing on Sylvain Distin's Achilles after the ball had gone.
Gerrard had a shot blocked by Phil Jagielka before Suarez was incorrectly denied an injury-time winner by the linesman's flag.
