LONDON (AFP) - Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to earn Liverpool a 3-3 draw at Everton with an 89th-minute equaliser in a richly entertaining Merseyside derby on Saturday.

A brace from Romelu Lukaku had put Everton on the brink of a first win over their city rivals in seven matches, but Sturridge's header gave Liverpool a share of the spoils after a frenetic Premier League encounter at Goodison Park.

Liverpool took a fifth-minute lead when Philippe Coutinho neatly controlled the ball on his knee and volleyed home after Luis Suarez flicked on a Steven Gerrard corner.

The hosts equalised three minutes later, Kevin Mirallas converting a Ross Barkley knock-down, only for Suarez to restore Liverpool's lead in the 19th minute by whipping a 25-yard free-kick into the bottom-right corner.
