Earlier, Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard scored his 10th goal in 32 derbies with a fine freekick to give the home side a 65th-minute lead.

However, the first minute of injury-time saw Jagielka draw Everton level with a spectacular long-range goal.

The draw meant that Liverpool are now in the 12th spot in the EPL standing after six games. Everton are one spot below their arch-rivals.

Liverpool were without influential England striker Daniel Sturridge, who failed to recover from a thigh injury in time to face the Toffees on Saturdday night, so Mario Balotelli led the line for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Everton right-back Seamus Coleman was still suffering from concussion, so veteran Tony Hibbert started his first league game start since December 2012.
