Rodgers: We deserved to win

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has apologised on social media for leaving Anfield before the Merseyside derby against Everton.

Sakho had not been selected in the squad for the match and was photographed by a fan leaving the stadium before the lunchtime clash on Saturday.

"I really want to apologise to the club, the supporters and every person who felt offended when I left the stadium this afternoon," he said on his Facebook page. "I'm aware that it was a bad choice from my part to go isolating to watch the game!"

The defender also reiterated his apology on Twitter:

Everton captain Phil Jagielka's last-minute stunner earned his side a point at Anfield after it cancelled out Steven Gerrard's 65th minute free-kick. Roberto Martinez hailed the goal as the "best" he had seen live, while counterpart Brendan Rodgers rued both bad luck and the officials.
