Everton star Richarlison mocks Liverpool after they miss out on the title

Everton forward Richarlison has mocked Merseyside rivals Liverpool on social media after the Reds were pipped to the Premier League title on the final day of the season.

Despite conceding early against Wolves at Anfield, Liverpool looked to have the title within their grasp for much of Sunday afternoon’s matches after Aston Villa took a two-goal lead at the Etihad.

City’s players looked stunned while an equaliser from Sadio Mane meant Liverpool only needed one goal to overtake Pep Guardiola’s side and keep their quest for the quadruple alive.

But, with 76 minutes on the clock, Ilkay Gundogan pulled a goal back for City before Rodri equalised two minutes later, and City’s German midfielder then completed a staggering five-minute comeback to seal a 3-2 victory for the champions.

Moments after Gundogan had sparked wild scenes of celebration at the Etihad, Mohamed Salah netted for Liverpool – with Andy Robertson adding a third in a 3-1 win – but ultimately it was not enough as the Reds finished just one point behind City.

Everton, meanwhile, had survived relegation on Thursday night and put out a second-string team against Arsenal at the Emirates, suffering a heavy 5-1 defeat.

Richarlison was not involved after picking up a knock in the come-from-behind victory over Crystal Palace that guaranteed Everton’s safety – though the loss to Arsenal could not overshadow his delight at seeing Liverpool miss out on the title.

The Brazilian – who has a rather fractious relationship with Liverpool after injurying Thiago last season – took to social media and posted a well-known gif of Thierry Henry smirking.
