Brendan Rodgers on the draw and Lucas Leiva's injury


Manager Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool were the better team in Saturday's Merseyside derby.

The Reds failed to move closer to the top-four after only managing a draw away at Everton but Rodgers was satisfied with the performance of his players.

"Over the course of the game, I thought we were clearly the better team," Rodgers told reporters.

"We switched off towards the end, in the last five minutes they had a counter-attack that led to their only shot on target.

"Apart from that, we defended very, very well and pressed the game well at the right moments and I thought we looked exciting in terms of our threat going forward.

"We needed a bit of luck in the final third of the field, we had opportunities both in the first half and the second half but just couldn't quite take them.

"But it's another clean sheet for us, a point away and we keep moving forward."

Meanwhile, the Northern Irishman says midfielder Lucas will be assessed on Sunday after suffering an injury against the Toffees.

"We'll just have to assess it," the manager said.

"He had a slight problem with his adductor - that's why he missed the last game [at Bolton].

"He felt it again there, so we'll see what the scan says on that."
