Ex-striker John Aldridge said in his column in the Liverpool Echo that there were two major parts of the game that cost Liverpool victory in the Merseyside derby against Everton - the failure of referee Phil Dowd to send off Everton's Kevin Mirallas and the now infamous miss from Joe Allen.

He added: 'In the cold light of day you've got to say there was some poor defending from both teams.

'Our set-plays were good quality. Luis Suarez's free-kick was amazing with the bend he got on it. The quality of the delivery from Steven Gerrard for Daniel Sturridge's equaliser meant it was so hard to defend against.'

At a younger level, Liverpool's youngsters lost the under 18's Merseyside derby to Everton 3-1 at Finch Farm. The Reds were trailing 3-0 until ten minutes from time when Jerome Sinclair scored a penalty.

There seems to be a fair bit of transfer gossip surrounding Liverpool but not many of them good signs. 

The Daily Express is reporting that Liverpool are set to lose out to Chelsea for Porto's Jackson Martinez. The agent of the 27-year-old striker is said to have flown into London to negotiate a deal for a move to Stamford Bridge. Tottenham were also rumoured to be interested in the Colombian.

Another transfer target that looks as if he may slip away is Cruzeiro's Everton Ribeiro, according to the Daily Mirror. However, the forward has said that a dream move for him would be to Manchester United. The report also hints that Iago Aspas' days as a Liverpool player are numbered.

As has been reported for the past week or so, Liverpool are interested in signing Olympiakos forward Konstantinos Mitroglou. But TalkSport is reporting that Genoa are also interested in the forward along with Arsenal, and the Italian club is putting together a £6.7m but the player.
