Howard: We'll Eliminate Errors

Goalkeeper says set-piece mistakes prevented derby victory.

Tim Howard has vowed Everton's errors at set-pieces during the Merseyside derby will be ironed out.

On the back of two goalless draws, the Blues found their clinical edge with three fine strikes, but that would not be enough to earn victory.

Instead, Liverpool found Howard's net on three ocassions themselves; once from a corner, once directly from a free-kick and a final time in the closing stages from a deadball delivery.

Having won six clean sheets in the 11 previous league games, the Everton defence is one that has continued to exhibit consistency among the league's leanest in recent seasons.

And that's why the visitors' goals on Saturday deflated goalkeeper Howard.

He told evertontv: "We're disappointed with the way we conceded the goals.

"It's not something we do and we're not proud of the fact that we gave away three goals. That can't happen, certainly not at set-pieces. There were little mistakes that got punished and that will be corrected.

"We shouldn't need four goals at home to win so in the end it's two points dropped but it was a good derby.

"We played really good football. I thought we dominated at times and they hit us on the counter-attack but we controlled a lot of it and created a tonne of chances."
