Liverpool & Everton charged by FA after “mass confrontation” – Latest LFC News

Thursday’s round up includes news that the FA have charged Liverpool and Everton after “a mass confrontation” in Monday’s Merseyside derby.


“Mass confrontation” seems a bit much!

On Thursday afternoon, the FA revealed they had charged both Liverpool and Everton following the incident sparked by Andy Robertson and Jordan Pickford in the 86th minute of Monday’s derby.

They claim both clubs failed to ensure their players “conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour”.

Both clubs have until next Monday to respond.

A number of players from both teams clashed after Robertson (hilariously) kicked the ball away from Pickford after Everton were awarded a free-kick.

Conor Coady took particular offence to Robertson’s actions (or at least pretended to), before the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Kostas Tsimikas and Everton‘s Amadou Onana were caught up in the melee from the sidelines.

Both Robertson and Pickford received yellow cards, but the FA clearly didn’t deem that to be enough of a punishment.
