Jurgen Klopp provides concerning Henderson update/Richarlison trolls Liverpool’s fans online

 

A pair of noteworthy takeaways, stemming from today’s Merseyside derby clash, have surfaced online this evening.

Richarlison & Sigurdsson on target

Rivalries were of course renewed at Anfield a short time ago, when Liverpool and Everton faced off in a Premier League showdown.

The clash marked a key one in the English top-flight’s race for European football, with Jurgen Klopp’s hosts, ahead of kick-off, having sat just 3 points clear of their ‘noisy neighbours’, in 6th.

In turn, Everton were aware that a victory at the home of the champions would guide them not only level with Liverpool, but also back into the thick of the top-4 race.

And, when all was said and done this evening, secure all 3 points is precisely what the Toffees went on to do.

The game’s scoring was opened inside three minutes, when James Rodriguez’s pinpoint through ball was lashed home by Richarlison:

Then, seven minutes from time, a crucial 2nd was forthcoming.

After Trent Alexander-Arnold was adjudged to have felled Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the hosts’ box, Gylfi Sigurdsson stepped up to slot home the ensuing spot-kick in confident fashion:

Everton now sit just 3 points outside the Premier League’s top-4, whilst boasting a game in hand on Chelsea, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton this afternoon.

Henderson latest/Richarlison hard at work

For Liverpool, on the other hand, the situation continues to look more bleak almost by the game.

The Reds, based on current form, are not only set to surrender their title, but also look in serious danger of missing out on a Champions League berth for next season.

The woes of Jurgen Klopp’s men, however, were not restricted to the eventual scoreline this evening.

With half an hour on the clock at Anfield, Jordan Henderson – who was being utilised in a defensive role amid the injury crisis at the heart of Liverpool’s backline – was forced off with a muscular problem.

And, if the early prognosis of the issue is anything to go by, then the Reds’ captain could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

When drawn on Henderson’s wellbeing during his post-match press conference tonight, Jurgen Klopp explained:

‘It’s the groin/adductor region and nobody in the medical department was positive about it.’

‘It doesn’t look good, but we have to wait, of course, for the scan tomorrow, hopefully.’

The mood on the other half of the River Mersey in the aftermath of today’s derby, though, has since unsurprisingly remained of a jubilant nature.

A host of videos have surfaced over the last couple of hours, providing an insight into the post-match scenes in Everton’s dressing room:

And one Toffees star in particular does not seem ready to allow Liverpool’s fans to forget about the result at Anfield on Saturday any time soon.

The player in question? Richarlison.

Taking to social media this evening, Everton’s Brazilian attacker went about highlighting some of the more ruthless tweets to have been posted by the Reds faithful over the last couple of days, before replying with a simple, yet altogether effective image:
