Jamie Carragher has raged at Everton star Richarlison for going to ground.
During the Merseyside Derby, as Liverpool midfielder Thiago drove forward with the ball, the Brazilian went to the floor in pain. The Toffees attacker was left on the pitch and play carried on as boos echoed around Anfield. And former Reds player Carragher fumed at Richarlison for what he perceived to be theatrics. "Get up. Every week he’s like that," he said on the Sky Sports commentary.
Subsequent pictures showed that the striker had actually rolled his ankle – and as a result, a few online were not pleased with Carragher's words.
One wrote: "Rolled his ankle. Reckon you might have been harsh there. Yeah, he might hit the deck easily but so does Salah. When you’re wrong, hold your hand up."
Another blasted Carragher: "You got that one wrong @Carra23 if your prepared to condemn him Over the mic live then let’s hope you have the spine to apologise as well."

A last one complimented the referee for dealing with the ugly scenes following incident: “Well done Stuart Atwell for playing on and then controlling the situation as well as anyone could when the players can't control themselves
Moments after, Abdoulaye Doucoure took out Fabinho, and both sets of players charged at one another in true derby fashion. The Everton midfielder was given a yellow card for the move.
The two managers Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard had another touchlines fracas, following on from their heated exchange when the Brit was Chelsea's manager back in 2020. Lampard had said ahead of the encounter that there was no bad blood between the pair – but that clearly wasn't the case.
He said: “So it was just a little moment for me that hopefully every manager understands. We all have our moments in different ways, and Jurgen was fine. I have absolutely no problem with him – I'll be competitive on the line on Sunday and I'm sure he will be the same. That is just the world we live in.”
