Last Saturday’s Merseyside derby was overshadowed by two horror challenges made by Everton players.
The first was produced by Jordan Pickford after just six minutes.
The English goalkeeper caught Virgil van Dijk on the knee inside the box with a dreadful high challenge. The Dutchman collapsed in a heap and was forced off.
It was later revealed that Van Dijk had torn his ACL and is likely to miss the rest of the season.
And the second was made by Richarlison on Thiago in the final minutes of the game.
The Brazilian was sent off – and rightly so – while Thiago may be forced to miss some time through injury.
Liverpool fans were incensed at Richarlison’s challenge and they had every right to be.
And it appears that Joel Matip was too.
Footage of the Cameroonian’s reaction to Richarlison’s challenge has only just emerged and it has Liverpool fans in stitches.
Matip was clearly consumed with anger and he did the strangest of walks as he approached Michael Oliver.
Watch the footage below:
