Everton beat Liverpool 2-0 to win their first Merseyside Derby at Anfield in 26 years, and Sky Sports pundits, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher had contrasting reactions after the game.

Manchester United legend Neville was one again gloating and revelling in the fact that the Reds lost yet another game, while Carragher hit out at his former team, claiming that they "can't keep saying Virgil van Dijk is out".

An early goal from Richarlison and a controversial late penalty by Gylfi Sigurdsson condenmned Jurgen Klopp's side to their fourth loss in a row at Anfield, the first time that has happened since 1923.

Neville began trolling Carragher at half-time, telling him to "go get your kit on" after Liverpool's abysmal first half showing. He took it up a notch after Everton were awarded a controversial penalty after Dominic Calvert-Lewin tripped over Trent Alexander-Arnold having seen his shot saved by Alisson.

The 46-year-old took to social media and uploaded a video of him sniggering, with the caption: "They've only sent him over to make em think it was being overturned!" when referee Chris Kavanagh approached the VAR monitor to cross-check the penalty decision.

Reds legend Carragher insisted that his former side got exactly what they deserved, even though they were missing key player, Van Dijk. "Liverpool have been so poor, they have got everything deserved,” Carragher said on commentary. “They can't keep saying 'Virgil van Dijk is out'. I'm sick of saying it myself.

"Going forward is as big a problem as what we're seeing defensively from Liverpool now,” he also said on air. I know Liverpool have dominated possession but it doesn't mean anything if you don't create. And that is a big problem for this Liverpool team. Very rarely do you see Liverpool play now when you expect them to score."

Graeme Souness added: "They're a shadow of their former selves. They're an easy touch. 2-0 doesn't flatter Everton. They deserved to win it. In all the areas that really matter, they were better than Liverpool."

The defeat sees Liverpool drop down to sixth place in the Premier League, level on points with Everton, and the Toffees have a game in hand.
