"The sending off was a hard pill to swallow," he told BBC Radio Merseyside. "But I've bounced back from that now it's been rescinded.
"Looking over the tackle again, I feel I've done nothing wrong. It's a strong tackle at best. But that's what going to happens in a derby.
"If the tackle was to be made again I'm sure I would do exactly the same. You can look back at things like that and it can change your perspective but it was a mistake and I'm sure it won't change my perception of how to tackle."
Meanwhile, the Toffees travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham this Sunday.
