Liverpool certainly made hard work of it. Liverpool needed a penalty that's given maybe 50% of the time. Liverpool again struggled at home, Liverpool again struggled against a packed-like-sardines defense. Liverpool took just 10 shots, Liverpool put just one non-penalty shot on-target (and I'm not convinced it was on-target, even though Fabianski "saved" it).

In isolation, a draw at Everton isn't the worst result. It's the same result Liverpool have gotten at Goodison in the previous three seasons.
