Liverpool fans have been poking fun at Everton after Richarlison celebrated his goal against Lincoln City like he had just smashed in a 40-yard volley for Brazil in the World Cup final.

The Toffees were given an early scare as Harry Anderson gave Lincoln the lead after only 20 seconds in Wednesday evening’s pulsating Carabao Cup clash.

Lucas Digne soon equalised with an unstoppable 30-yard free-kick in the 36th minute and Gylfi Sigurdsson put Everton ahead from the penalty spot on the hour mark.

Just ten minutes later, Lincoln were level again as Carvalho Andrade beat Jordan Pickford a spectacular volley, but a pair of late goals from Alex Iwobi and Richarlison secured a 4-2 victory for Everton.

After putting Everton out of sight with his 88th-minute header, Richarlison channeled his inner Lionel Messi by removing his shirt and presenting to a rapturous away end at Sincil Bank.

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool supporters used it as an opportunity to mock their bitter rivals.

Should they really be celebrating in such a manner against League One opposition in the second round of the Carabao Cup?


Following their victory over Lincoln, Everton were drawn away to Sheffield Wednesday in the third round of competition.

Asked about Everton’s trip to Hillsborough, Marco Silva said: ‘It will be another tough match in this competition against Sheffield Wednesday next.

‘A Championship club who have started well and we will think about them when we have to play them.

‘The most important thing that I asked was that we were serious and to respect the fans and opponents.

‘We did not start how we wanted, it was the worst way, but we showed personality to keep doing what we should do and how we want to play. I told the players to keep playing fast; we did that and in some moments we did very well.

‘They scored again with a fantastic strike but we took risks, changed the formation and then scored the third and added the fourth. We deserved to go through.’
