Some Liverpool fans were left fuming after one eagle eyed supporter noticed that Roberto Firmino liked one of Richarlison’s Instagram posts after the Merseyside derby.
Liverpool had lost at Anfield to their city rivals for the first time in 22 years and the defeat was particularly devastating for Liverpool fans so when Bobby Firmino was spotted liking one of Richarlison’s posts – of a picture of him after he scored – they were not happy.
Some argued that because the two men are Brazilian it was more of a sign of national pride rather than local but most fans were unimpressed with Firmino’s actions.
Seriously just have the impression they don’t care at all….yes they are both Brazilian but there’s no way he can be doing this

One Liverpool fan said: “This is terrible man. You’d think someone who’s been here for a very long time now would know the importance of the derby let alone the embarrassment that loss has just bought us. Same goes for all of them.”
Another dejected fan added: “I actually can’t believe this. Do they really think we wouldn’t care or even notice?”
Everton’s victory was just more salt in the wounds of Jurgen Klopp and his men who are having a torrid time at the moment.
The game was Everton’s first victory at Anfield in 22-years and judging by the scenes in the Everton dressing room afterwards, it was very much enjoyed.
The two sides met in the Merseyside derby on Saturday with the Blues coming out victorious after clinching a 2-0 victory.
Scorers on the day were Richarlison who opened the scoring in just the 3rd minute and Gylfi Sigurðssonn who netted from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute.
