Jamie Carragher insists he ‘quite likes’ Richarlison calling him out after the Everton striker told the Liverpool legend to ‘wash his mouth’. The Brazil international helped save the Toffees from relegation with a crucial goal in Thursday night’s 3-2 comeback win against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park. Just hours after the match, Richarlison took to Twitter to hit out at Carragher, saying: ‘@Carra23 wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I don’t respect you.’

Carragher had criticised the 25-year-old for his antics during Everton’s Merseyside derby defeat to Liverpool last month. After going down following an attempted tackle from Thiago, the former Reds defender told Sky Sports of Richarlison: ‘Honestly, get up. Get up, carry on… there’s nothing wrong with him.’ But Carragher has no problem with the Toffees forward’s comments on social media, admitting he would’ve done the same if Twitter was around during his own playing career.

He said he quite likes it, while also adding that if Twitter was around during his playing career, he would have also had a go at football pundits. Everton’s remarkable comeback from two goals down against Palace has secured their status as a Premier League club before the final day of the season on Sunday, with Leeds United and Burnley now set to battle it out for safety.
Everton manager Frank Lampard said that it was an incredible night after his team secured the remarkable and astonishing comeback victiry over Crystal Palace in the league. He said he had been playing a long time and has been coaching for a short period but insisted that he feels very fortunate to be a part of what happened on the night.
It was indeed a great and much needed victiry for Everton who eventually confirmed their continued stay in the Premier League, conquering fears of suffering relegation to the Championship.
