Everton striker Richarlison has made a cheeky move at Liverpool after they failed to win the Premier League title in a spectacular final day of the season on May 22.
The Reds clinched a 3-1 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers but their efforts were in vain as Manchester City completed an even more dramatic 3-2 win at home against Aston Villa.
Richarlison took to his official Twitter to criticize the Reds’ defeat by posting a gif of Thierry Henry smirking.
Everton and Liverpool have a rival city relationship and are often pleased about each other’s failures.
The Toffees themselves secured their top spot as they came back from two goals in a 3-2 home win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Liverpool entered the final day of the match hoping to get a hand-to-hand victory but they did not hold their fate in their hands. The Red Devils need to get the maximum points at home, and hope Manchester City will drop points at the Etihad.
Things started to go badly at Anfield when Pedro Neto put the visitors ahead in just the third minute but Sadio Mane equalized for his side 21 minutes later.
Mohamed Salah came off the bench to give the hosts the lead while Andrew Robertson was certain in the 89th minute.
Liverpool and Manchester City’s dramatic final day comeback encapsulates their thrilling title race
Manchester City and Liverpool are by far the most dominant teams in the Premier League and the two sides go head-to-head until the last day.
City have a one-point advantage going into the final day and need a win to secure their fourth league title in five years.
Things didn’t go as planned when Matty Cash gave Aston Villa the lead before halftime before Philippe Coutinho made it 2-0 with a smart finish in the 69th minute.
At that time, the Red Devils were still on par with Wolves, meaning that the defending champions were still holding the advantage in the race to the championship.
However, Manchester City proved their mettle on a number of occasions and his replacement Ilkay Gundogan stepped off the bench to inspire a quick game.
The Germany international halved the deficit in the 76th minute with a mighty header. Two minutes later, Rodri equalized for Guardiola’s side with a precise shot from just outside the box and Gundogan was there just in time to complete the turn in the 81st minute.
City’s three goals all came within five-minute intervals and marked the first time the club had won a Premier League game since February 2005.
Although Liverpool were ultimately unable to win the title, that doesn’t take away from what has been a spectacular season for the Reds. Jurgen Klopp must now channel his energies to ensure his teams are well prepared for the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28.
