Andy Robertson unimpressed

The Liverpool left-back was not happy with the challenges that were being thrown in by Everton’s players at Goodison Park.

Robertson told Liverpool’s TV channel: “To be honest, I never saw [the Jordan Pickford challenge]. I just saw Virg going down.

“But the lads when they came in at half-time said it was a shocking challenge, so that’s two they’ve done us with today.

“I think it was already offside and they’d maybe called it, but for me it was the same as Richarlison’s. The whistle had already gone and he went flying in, it’s a red card.”

On the late goal from Jordan Henderson being chalked off, he added: “I looked when Thiago played the ball and I thought it could be [offside], it couldn’t be.

“But Hendo’s just scored the winner in the derby – so we thought – so you can’t not celebrate it.

“Then you just wait for the decision and obviously the ref took a long time, we knew it was going to be a close one, we know it’s sadly not going to go in our favour.

“Look, it is what it is, we move on from it. We probably needed a couple more minutes with the 10 men after the shocking challenge, and if we had a bit of time then maybe we would have nicked it.”
