Without the Premier League's top scorer starting and Firmino moved to the bench, the Reds didn't possess the same efficacy where it counted.

Nathaniel Clyne (6.8) and Ragnar Klavan (6.8) impressed in hard circumstances at right- and left-back respectively, while Jordan Henderson (6.7) and Dejan Lovren (6.6) fared reasonably too.

Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke were given rare starts up front but both looked rusty, with the latter failing to take either of two early chances.

The usually hyped game between the two fierce rivals was relatively low-key on this occasion because the fixture was sandwiched between the Champions League quarter-final legs for Liverpool.

The home crowd thought Bolasie had scored in the 22nd minute when he curled one in from the edge of the box but despite being unsighted till the very last second, Karius managed to tip it around the post.

"I think that in the end when you finish the game as strongly as that and put Liverpool under pressure, you can say we were unlucky", Allardyce told Sky Sports.

Only Man City (41) have won more points on the road this season in the Premier League than Liverpool (31).

Everton, beaten in three of their last five Prem outings heading into this one, failed to really get to grips with the game in the first half as they relinquished almost three quarters of possession.

"I don't feel on trial. Now we prepare for the next game, let's fight for the next round".

The Reds dominated the opening exchanges of the second half but failed to trouble Pickford, while Wayne Rooney was replaced by Idrissa Gueye after 56 minutes.

"The biggest thing for Dominic now is playing games". The job was to work hard and enjoy the game, really, and then get a result and they were like this. The team has, unsurprisingly, been hard to watch since his appointment last November, and their results have only been marginally better. Fielding Ragnar Klavan at left-back was a risk but Everton could not exploit it.

Nathaniel Clyne made his first appearance of the season at right back.
