Everton fans react on Twitter to Liverpool draw - "Jagielka the hero!"

Jagielka

Everton snatched a point at Anfield today as Phil Jagielka's 90th minute strike denied their Merseyside rivals a win.

Everton endured a difficult week following defeats to Crystal Palace and Swansea City, and they had the perfect chance to bounce back as they travelled across Stanley Park to face Merseyside rivals Liverpool at lunch time today. The Toffees had gone 15 years without a win at Anfield, and with Brendan Rodgers' side also out of form, the Toffees had a great opportunity to claim that elusive victory.

The first half was incident filled, but Everton will be most concerned over the hamstring injury suffered by winger Kevin Mirallas rather than the controversial Gareth Barry handball in the first period. The second half saw Steven Gerrard give Liverpool the lead before a stunning equaliser from Phil Jagielka handed Everton a point. The ball dropped to the Toffees skipper 25 yards out, and he smashed the ball into the top corner with just seconds remaining.

The goal somewhat papered over the cracks for Everton, who once again turned in a poor performance as they struggle to gain any sort of momentum in the early stages of the new season. Few players came out with the game with any credit, and whilst Everton fans were ecstatic with the late equaliser, some are still wondering why their side are playing so poorly after such a great season last term.

Here are some of the tweets from Everton fans after today's 1-1 draw with Liverpool...
