Bizzare reaction from Liverpool’s gentle giant
Liverpool edged Everton 2-1 in their FA cup encounter to maintain their 16 game unbeaten streak in the Merseyside derbies as the night which had drama written all over it, proved to be just that with tackles flying in aplenty.
One such tackle by Wayne Rooney on Joe Gomez proved to be the final straw in the already boiling cauldron of rivalry with the former United man cleaning out Gomez with an ugly slide and drawing a quite an outlandish reaction from Joel Matip in the process.
The usually calm centre-half marched towards the referee in an agitated state which screamed exasperation.
While much of the plaudits were hogged by Virgil van Dijk for his goal, Matip’s peculiar reaction has since gone viral with Reds supporters in particular loving the Cameroonian’s display of resentment in such a weird way.
