Everton hold the title fee of Liverpool in the Merseyside derby without a goal

That was not the desired result by Jurgen Klopp’s men when they returned to action after missing three months, but with a 23-point advantage over Manchester City, the celebration would not be long overdue.

Everton, rising under new manager Carlo Ancelotti, were the closest to securing a victory with Tom Davies seeing his effort late against the post and Brazilian striker Richarlison force a smart save from Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Despite concerns about fans gathering near the stadium with Liverpool Anfield less than a mile away, permission was given for the match to continue at Goodison. But in an empty stadium, derby atmosphere which is usually full of fever does not exist.

What was also lacking was a clear opportunity for both sides, with Liverpool, leaving Mo Salah who did not fully fit on the bench, rarely breaking into the goal of host Jordan Pickford.

Joel Matip should have done better than Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free kick in the first half and Liverpool started the second half strongly with Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita joining in well to set the opportunity.

But Everton survived the pressure and almost caused disappointment in the last few minutes when a smart film from Dominic Calvert-Lewin was prevented by Alisson with the first attempt of Davies who hit the wood and away.

The draw left Liverpool unbeaten in the last 22 Merseyside derbies, but still five points from the coveted guarantee of the coveted English Premier League crown.

The Liverpool manager said his team did not create enough opportunities for the amount of time the ball had.

“Most of the time we are dominant but then they have the biggest chance, we are lucky at that moment,” Klopp said.

“Both teams showed it was a derby, even without a crowd,” Klopp said.

Before the match, both teams bowed to support the Black Lives Matter movement and stood for a minute in honor of those who had died in the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chelsea increase Champions League bid

Earlier on Sunday, Chelsea strengthened its grip on fourth place with a 2-1 win at relegation-threatened Aston Villa.

Kortney Hause put Villa ahead against the game just before halftime, but after the break it continued to be a one-way traffic because Chelsea dominated possession without carving out a series of opportunities.

Manager Frank Lampard sent US international Christian Pulisic in an attempt to spark his attack and it paid dividends almost immediately when he connected with Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross for a half-volley equalizer in the 60th minute.

The winner came just two minutes later when Olivier Giroud was allowed to enter the penalty box and his deflected shot beat Orjan Nyland in Villa’s goal.

Chelsea's French striker Olivier Giroud scored his team's winning goal when his shot took a deflection from the challenging Conor Hourihane shoe to defeat Orjan Nyland in the Aston Villa goal.

Villa had a late chance to equalize when Jota shot wide, but Dean Smith’s team were well beaten and remain second in the bottom of the table.

The victory completes a good week for Chelsea, who have strengthened their squad by acquiring RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, and moving five points from Manchester United in fourth place and only three adrift of third place Leicester City.

Sheffield United faltered in their bid for a place in the Champions League, losing 3-0 to Newcastle, which could be under new ownership by the controversial Saudi-backed consortium.

Manager Steve Bruce admitted before the match that it was “a nuisance” but that did not prevent his team from securing an impressive victory, helped by a second-half dismissal because of two yellow cards from visiting defender John Egan.

The lively Allan Saint-Maximin scored the opening goal soon after Egan left and Matt Ritchie doubled Newcastle’s lead with a hit 14 minutes later.

The icing on the cake for Newcastle fans is the third – a rare goal for Brazilian striker Joelinton, who had previously missed a very hard first-half chance to put his side ahead.

It was his first league goal since August 25 against Tottenham and only his fourth goal of the season after his move of £ 40 million ($ 44 million) from Hoffenheim last year.

Despite a draw and loss since the campaign resumed, Chris Wilder United is only two points behind fifth place Manchester United, who drew 1-1 with Tottenham on Friday.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
