Now with 15 minutes left to play, supporters of both Liverpool sides are set for a nervous finish while neutrals look set for an exciting and entertaining one. Just which of the two teams will be more inclined to gamble and push for a winner is yet to be seen but first, Dirk Kuyt has found an equalizer for the Reds.
In a rather easy decision, referee Phil Dowd awarded Liverpool a spot kick Tim Howard fell Maxi Rodriguez inside of the box and Kuyt stepped up and slotted past Howard easily by sending the US international the wrong way. David Moyes has brought off goal scorer Jermaine Beckford in favor of David Vaughan in hopes the young Vaughan can provide another spark or moment of brilliance that will witness Everton take the lead for good.
Liverpool, however, had a half chance in the 77th when Martin Kelly found Fernando Torres down the right channel but Torres elected to test Howard with a chip as opposed to a powerful strike and the ball sailed up and over for an Everton goal kick. Again in the 77th, Moyes has made another change in the form of Jack Rodwell on for Leon Osman.
