It did not take long for Everton star Richarlison to mock Liverpool’s 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa.
The Reds suffered their heaviest ever Premier League defeat when Ollie Watkins’ hat-trick, Jack Grealish’s brace and goals from Ross Barkley and John McGinn embarrassed Jurgen Klopp’s side on Sunday.
After the international break, next up for the reigning champions is a trip to Everton – and Richarlison has just added even more spice to the Merseyside Derby clash.
The Brazil forward tweeted a picture of him celebrating a goal scored in a previous match, showing his No.7 shirt in a clear reference to the amount of goals Liverpool conceded at Villa Park.
Richarlison has scored four goals in six appearances this season, and could add to his tally against Liverpool, who will be without first-choice goalkeeper Alisson for between four to six weeks due to a shoulder injury.
Adrian was in goal against Villa and made his FIFTH error leading to a goal in 21 Liverpool appearances when his wayward pass resulted in Watkins opening the scoring.
Everton, who are top of the Premier League table having won all of their opening four matches, will be looking to end their 10-year wait for a victory over their arch rivals.
Richarlison was not the only big name in football mocking Liverpool as Gary Neville also joined in.
The Manchester United legend, who watched his former club lose 6-1 to Tottenham earlier in the day, tweeted a picture of him drinking red wine as Villa went 5-1 up.
And at full-time, he took a selfie of himself next to a dejected-looking Jamie Carragher, who was commentating on the match for Sky Sports.
