Crystal Palace could have landed Liverpool's soon-to-be record signing Virgil van Dijk for a paltry £6m former boss Neil Warnock has revealed. Everton showed from the start that they were not intending to afford him an easy introduction to life at Anfield. James Milner met a ball from Joe Gomez, but fired his shot just wide of goal.
The German manager said he did not feel his side deserved a penalty for Mason Holgate's challenge on Adam Lallana in the first half.
Holgate's head was scrambled and five minutes later, after losing possession, he shoved Firmino into the front row of the Main Stand.
However, Madley was between the two players and took no action against either.
The former Charlton man played a large part in Sigurdsson's equaliser when he broke free on a counter-attack and lined up Phil Jagielka, who set-up the Iceland worldwide to curl home a stunning strike from outside the box.
There was to be another sensational twist as Virgil van Dijk rose up to head home the victor following a corner, which Pickford failed to deal with.
It may have all been a misunderstanding but it provided extra motivation for the visitors, with a markedly improved performance after the interval as even Liverpool's new £75 million signing could not help them keep a clean sheet.
