Mersey Mauling: Liverpool Put Four Past Everton At Anfield But Origi Injury Concern For Klopp (Video)

Liverpool gave Mersey neighbours Everton a right royal hammering on Wednesday night, with the Reds running out deserved 4-0 victors at Anfield. However, an injury to striker Divock Origi, after a dreadful challenge by Everton’s Ramiro Funes Mori, took some of the gloss of the emphatic derby win for Jurgen Klopp and co.

The hosts were 2-0 up at the break, courtesy of a couple of James Milner assisted headers from Origi and Mamadou Sakho. Then, on 50 minutes, Funes Mori went in studs up on the Belgian striker’s ankle, leaving the youngster in agony…

The Everton man rightly saw a straight red while Origi was stretchered off with what looked like a serious injury. Post-match reports suggest that while the in-form forward avoided an ankle break, he has still damaged ligaments which may well rule him out of the rest of the season and threaten his involvement in EURO 2016 with Belgium.

Liverpool would score two more goals before the end, courtesy of goals from sub Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho to round off a fine evening for the Reds and a nightmare night for under-pressure Toffees’ boss Roberto Martinez.

While Klopp continues to move forward at Anfield, one wonders how much longer the Everton board will stick with Martinez, who has seen his side stall badly this season.

    Nasty tackle from Mori. Very nasty. Definite red card.

    Not nice to see a player hurt like that, and I’m a United supporter.

  2. Leo says:

    That tackle could be forgiven, but his gesture at the end was disgusting. What a horrible human being.

  3. Dave says:

    Yes it was a bad tackle and he deserved to see red for it but the media and that little fart Carragher once again go overboard and he has a selective memory too. Anyone remember thug Gerrards two footed lunge on Naysmith in 2002 ? The ref Mr Poll deemed it wasn’t even a foul and waved play on. How about Kuyts drop kick on Neville ? This was GBH the ref only give a yellow. Move on…Shit happens. It’s a derby game.
