The Liverpool under-23s were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Saturday afternoon, with the absence of two players giving a hint at Jurgen Klopp‘s squad vs. Brentford.

There is even a chance that Gordon starts against Brentford, though it seems unlikely Klopp will gamble if the likes of Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Curtis Jones are available.

After the under-18s’ disappointing 1-0 loss to Man City, the second academy game of the weekend kicked off at Kirkby, with a strong U23s side taking to the field.

But Everton ensured a point each as Tom Cannon surged onto a pass and finished beyond Pitaluga, clinching a 1-1 draw in the derby.

The scorer was 20-year-old forward Jack Bearne, who made up for wasting an earlier chance by converting Owen Beck’s low cross – the left-back serving as provider for the second game running.

While it was a disappointing result for the U23s, there was intrigue on the touchline as both Kaide Gordon and Tyler Morton watched their team-mates in action.

It was a largely attritional derby, with Everton sitting deep and Liverpool working to break them down, and the opener came after an hour of football at Kirkby.
