Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has aimed a cheeky swipe at Everton’s Richarlison following the Reds’ 2-0 win in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
Andy Robertson’s second goal of the season and Divock Origi’s sixth goal in nine derby matches wrapped up a crucial Premier League win for Liverpool to keep them in the hunt for a historic quadruple this season. And following the result, Fabinho aimed a dig in Richarlison’s direction as he took to social media to celebrate the win.
It comes as Everton ace Anthony Gordon has made an awkward U-turn after watching back his penalty claim during the derby against Liverpool. And Alisson’s wife has reacted to his imitation of Jordan Pickford in the closing stages of Sunday’s game.
Alisson’s wife reacts to ‘Pickford moment’
Liverpool goalkeeper Allison’s wife has reacted to his antics in the dying minutes of Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
The Reds shot-stopper earned huge cheers from the Anfield supporters when he fell to the ground when catching the ball – in a clear impression of Jordan Pickford. The Everton keeper had resorted to going to ground with the ball in his arms to help run the clock down with the scores still at 0-0 – much to the home support’s anger.
Alisson then made fun of Pickford towards the end of the game with a clear impression of the England number 1. And after the game, Alisson’s wife Natalia Becker, ‘liked’ clips and posts about her husband’s antics on Twitter.
Gordon makes penalty claim U-turn
Everton forward Anthony Gordon has admitted he can “see why the referee hasn’t given” a penalty after watching back an incident he was involved in with Joel Matip in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
The 21-year-old was booked for diving prior to the entanglement with Matip, after going over in the box after trying to go past Naby Keita. And Gordon has now responded to both incidents, which could have helped turn the tie in Everton’s favour, as he insisted he did not dive to try and win a penalty on either occasion.
Fabinho’s cheeky swipe at Richarlison
Liverpool’s Fabinho has aimed a cheeky dig at Brazil teammate Richarlison following Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
The Reds ran out 2-0 winners to boost their Premier League title hopes and leave their rivals in the relegation zone after Burnley’s 1-0 win over Wolves. Everton’s Richarlison wound up the home support during the tie, who jeered the Brazil ace for going down in a clear indication they believed he was making the most of challenges.
And Fabinho appears to have agreed with that assessment as he posted a photo to Instagram of Richarlison going down clutching his face as Fabinho takes the ball past him. “What a win!” read the caption. “Until the end, boys!”
