Everton fan posts salty tweet aimed at Van Dijk and Firmino – Liverpool fan has perfect comeback

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first goal in Everton’s 4-1 win against West Ham on Wednesday was pretty special.

The 23-year-old brought down a long pass from Michael Keane with his left foot before scoring past Darren Randolph with his right.

It was the first of three for Calvert-Lewin as he scored his second hat-trick of the season.

The Everton forward has made an incredible start to the 2020/21 season, scoring eight goals in five appearances.

And he’s been rewarded for his efforts with a place in England’s squad for their October internationals.


Calvert-Lewin’s status among Everton’s fans couldn’t be higher and one supporter wanted more to be made about his first goal against West Ham.

Twitter user @RichyNSO even came for Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Roberto Firmino as he pleaded for more coverage on Calvert-Lewin’s goal.

“If Van Dijk does what Keane does and Firmino does what DCL does then this is getting a 3-part documentary btw,” the fan wrote.

The coverage given to Liverpool right now is at an all-time high. They are the reigning Premier League champions and dominate the media landscape.

But unfortunately, @RichyNSO probably couldn’t have picked out a worse goal to use to take a shot at Everton’s biggest rivals.

Why? Because Liverpool HAVE scored a goal just like Calvert-Lewin’s – and it wasn’t their star players who were involved.

Worse still is that it came again Everton.

Origi scored a similar goal last year

Last year, Liverpool defeated Everton 5-2 at Anfield in the Premier League, with Divock Origi scoring the Reds’ third with a fine lob over Jordan Pickford.

The Belgian striker brought down a long pass from Dejan Lovren before dinking the ball over Pickford.

A Liverpool fan reminded the Everton supporter of this on Twitter in the perfect comeback to his tweet.
