Everton and Liverpool played out a cagey affair as Roberto Martinez's men tried to match Liverpool's system to avoid being outnumbered in the middle of the pitch.
Everton ceded possession in the process but ultimately their game plan worked as Liverpool rarely managed to threaten the Everton goal.
Raheem Sterling had many of Liverpool's chances but never truly looked like scoring. The first chance was when Coutinho played Sterling in from the left hand side, duping goalkeeper Joel Robles to come out of goal and try to seize the ball. Predictably, Sterling got to the ball first giving him a slight glimpse at goal, although he could only hit the side netting.
Moments later good work from Alberto Moreno allowed Sterling to have another crack on goal. It was not the greatest shot but its deflection trickled towards Jordon Ibe incoming from the right, although this time Robles timed his ventured from the goal to perfection.
Seamus Coleman rampaged down the right wing and shot across goal giving Simon Mignolet a considerable amount to think about.
Roberto Martinez speaking to BBC Sport: "We want to get better in every department. It's important to keep clean sheets but in the same manner we want to create and score goals.
"I thought today was an interesting tactical battle on the pitch,. We both had our turns in charge of the game. You could see that one goal would do it for either side. I am extremely satisfied with the performance.
"Ross Barkley when he came on gave a really focussed performance We carried a threat all the way through.
"We were heavily tested from a tactical point of view but we defended extremely well."
Steven Gerrard speaking to Sky Sports: "Both sides cancelled each other out first. We were looking for that spark but it never came and both defences were on top. Jordon Ibe was fantastic and he only found out he was playing yesterday. He was man of the match, it was a sensational performance from him and he's got a big future.
"We can't have too many complaints. I love playing here, Goodison Park is a great stadium and I have some wonderful memories here. I will miss the Merseyside derby but maybe there's one more left in the Europa League."
Brendan Rodgers speaking to BBC Sport: "I thought we were very good. The performance level of the players was outstanding. Everton had one shot on target and going forward we looked a real threat. It was only that final bit of luck that could have got us in.
"Overall I'm delighted. Jordon Ibe is a big talent, I was debating whether to keep him here in the summer but I felt it was important to get him out and play and feel the pressure.
"He did a great job with Steve McClaren at Derby and we knew he'd be ready to play in the team. With a bit more luck he would have got a goal tonight, he is at a high level."
