Liverpool, Everton play to scoreless draw in Merseyside Derby

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool and Everton played out a goalless draw in a subdued Merseyside derby at Goodison Park in Saturday's late Premier League match.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, appearing in his final game against Everton before leaving for LA Galaxy in May, forced Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles to tip his free kick over after 10 minutes.

Jordon Ibe, making his second start for Liverpool, went closest to scoring in the first half. He burst down the right, weaved inside and fired powerfully against the post from 25 yards.

Daniel Sturridge came on in the 55th for Philippe Coutinho but could not offer Liverpool an extra attacking edge.

Seamus Coleman went nearest for Everton, bringing a good save out of Liverpool 'keeper Simon Mignolet from a narrow angle on 87 minutes.
