Marouane Fellaini had mixed emotions after Everton's derby draw.

The Blues fought back from 2-0 down against Liverpool with the Belgian laying on the equaliser for Steven Naismith.

Recovering a two goal deficit would normally be a cause for satisfaction but Fellaini agreed that the game could have resulted in the Blues taking all three points.

Fellaini told evertontv: "I am happy because we started badly, but we came back and it was a good point in the end.

"Both teams wanted to win the derby so we are unhappy not to.

"At 2-0 I thought it was finished because it's hard to come back. But our team has good mentality and good supporters to help us. We could have won or lost."

Fellaini's fitness race had been a feature of the pre-match build-up and he admitted he was desperate to play in this particular game.

"I worked hard for two weeks to get back for the derby," he revealed. "I stayed in Belgium for one week's recovery. I'm not 100 per cent but I gave my maximum today.

"It's important to win the next game. Everybody wants to win when we go to Fulham."
