Yerry Mina insists that after his costly Merseyside derby mistake, Jordan Pickford does not have to apologize to Everton's side.

The Englishman's abusive handling of Virgil van Dijk's shot, which seemed to have landed on the roof of the net, gave Divock Origi the chance to reach a dramatic winner in Anfield on Sunday.

The mistake cruelly denied Everton a deserved point in the home country of his toughest rivals, but Mina believes Pickford is still one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

"First and foremost, Jordan is not just an excellent goalkeeper, he's also a top guy and a really good friend," he said Sky Sports News.

"He did not have to say anything in the locker room after that, he often saved us.

"Mistakes can occur anywhere in the field at any time, just look last night, where he has saved us a few times, he is a real leader and one of the best goalkeepers in the league."

The Colombian international added jokingly, "Without any mistakes on the field, every game would end 0-0!"

Everton's positive performance against Liverpool left the Toffees dreaming of a first win at Anfield since 1999.

Borrowed Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes won the Man of the Match award after another impressive performance, which he again convinced in the Midweek draw with Newcastle.

The seamless adaptation of Gomes to life on Merseyside has meant that its lending business should be permanent, an idea that supports Mina, who played for Barca.

"Every day I'm with him every day," he said. "I basically told him that the coach is happy with us and we are happy with the coach who works hard to improve us as a player on the training field.
