Liverpool fans rage at physical Everton after derby victory

Despite a convincing victory over Everton at Anfield, Liverpool fans were left massively annoyed by the performances of two Toffees players; Ross Barkley and Ashley Williams.

Both were involved in incidents throughout the 90 minutes with Barkley in particular attracting the ire of the Reds support after a late challenge on Dejan Lovren that could have done serious damage to his ankle.

Williams was perceived by some supporters to have stamped on Emre Can in the first half.

Derbies are rarely without controversy or the odd naughty challenge but supporters felt Everton beyond even the context of a derby with their combative and physical style.

Overall it was a joyous day for Liverpool after Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi banged in goals to boost their chances of a top four finish in the Premier League this season.

Everton had been looking to spring a surprise result to potentially push for a top four position themselves but those hopes have now been dashed.

Was the referee too lenient on the Toffees or is this all a fuss over nothing?¬†Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their displeasure with the antics of Barkley and Williams…
