Virgil van Dijk and Darwin Nunez become enraged as Liverpool fans react to Everton’s slur.


Scenes from Liverpool’s Premier League match against Everton on Wednesday that you might not have noticed. Liverpool’s miserable away loss to Everton on Wednesday effectively ended their hopes of winning the Premier League title.

The Reds lost 2-0 after a remarkably lackluster performance. As a result, in order for Jurgen Klopp’s team to have any chance of winning the title, both Arsenal and Manchester City must drop an improbable number of points.

But in the ninety minutes at Goodison, a lot happened that was missed or overlooked. Nunez is not content.

Liverpool had good reason to be miffed on a gloomy evening, even though they were quite bad during large portions of the derby.

As Everton was given a series of occasionally mild free-kicks by referee Andy Madley, Virgil van Dijk, Alexis Mac Allister, and Luis Diaz were all booked for dissent.

Additionally, at the full-time whistle, Darwin Nunez and Van Dijk were seen giving the official what appeared to be sarcastic applause. However, Klopp noticed a developing problem and instructed the official to stop.

Trent aggravates the three

For a large portion of the match, the visitors’ attacks were terribly misguided, and even when they did manage to break through, Jordan Pickford, the Everton goalkeeper, or the post stood in their way.

And Trent Alexander-Arnold’s attempt to launch an assault during the first half was met with despair when he was only able to belt the ball straight downfield to Pickford.

In a show of frustration, Nunez, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Mohamed Salah turned to face the Reds vice captain. However, considering how poorly that three performed, they ought to have been among the final ones to criticize a poorly executed pass.

Returning to the boos

Naturally, Everton supporters were happy with the way things were going at Goodison, and they made sure the opposing team was aware of this.

The second half saw very little noise from the Liverpool fans, which led several in the home end to yell angrily that their level of support was, to put it mildly, below average.

That did not stop the travelling Kop from erupting into a chorus of jeers, something many of them believe to be a common occurrence among Everton supporters at Goodison these days. But not on Wednesday.

faulty math

After the game, there was a humorous moment in the press box when the reporters started reciting their pieces as their deadlines drew near.

One happy Everton supporter screamed, “Keep on writing, guys, keep on writing, we win one of these every year!” Before he paused and realized what he had said, he corrected himself, saying, “Well, one every 25 years.”

The extent to which Liverpool has been able to escape defeat at Goodison is not that great. To some hardened Blues, however, it certainly felt like a quarter of a century after waiting 14 years.
