Daniel Sturridge took to Instagram and messaged Naby Keita after the Liverpool midfielder 'copied' his dance moves in Sunday's Merseyside Derby victory over Everton.

Former Reds striker Sturridge was watching as Jurgen Klopp's side ran out 2-0 winners.

In the first half, Everton winger Anthony Gordon claimed Keita fouled him just inside the area after going down.

The Guinea international pulled his arms up and away from Gordon, who was then booked for simulation.

Keita's arm movement looked similar to that of Sturridge's signature celebration and he let him know.


"There's never a wrong time to drop this move," Sturridge posted while tagging Keita along with a series of images.

Gordon was a thorn in Liverpool's side all game and had another penalty appeal turned down in the second half after a coming together with Joel Matip.

The Anfield home end asked for the 21-year-old to be given a second booking, while Everton fans demanded a spot kick.

Everton are 'livid' with the decision and results elsewhere this weekend mean they're in the Premier League's relegation zone.

The club are preparing a formal response to the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) in relation to the incident according to The Telegraph.

Everton are said to be more concerned about the use of VAR rather than the performance of on-field referee Stuart Atwell.

Gordon was asked about the coming together at full-time and told Sky Sports: "We could have had a penalty, in my opinion. But sometimes they just go against you and that’s just how football is at times.

"The second [appeal] was the strongest because he stood on my foot.

"Clearly, I’ve gone one-v-one with him and got the better of him and he’s stood on my foot, which has caused me severe pain and I’ve gone down."

Frank Lampard's side defended resolutely in the first half and attempted to hit Liverpool on the counter.

The defence was breached in the second half however as Andy Robertson headed in the opener just past the hour mark.

Substitute Divock Origi sealed victory five minutes from time to keep Liverpool within one point of league leaders Manchester City.
