Jordan Pickford's Wink To The Liverpool Fans Comes Back To Haunt Him, Even Alisson Mocked Him

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford gave the Liverpool fans a cheeky grin and a wink in the first-half of Sunday's Merseyside derby before the Toffees went on to lose the game.

Frank Lampard's side didn't have much of the ball in the opening 45 minutes. In fact, they completed 32 passes in the first half at Anfield – the fewest by a team in the opening period of a Premier League game since November 2006.

But despite having just 14% of the possession, Everton managed to keep the title contenders at bay until the 62nd minute, when full-back Andy Robertson headed in at the far post after a delicious cross from Mohamed Salah.

Before that, the Toffees did well to frustrate Liverpool and to celebrate their first-half efforts, Everton shot-stopper Jordan Pickford decided to give the Liverpool fans a cheeky wink after catching the ball.

Here's how social media reacted to the moment.

One fan said: "Yeah 'cos Pickford winding up opposition fans normally works out so well for him," while another wrote: "When he starts to engage with a crowd it doesn't usually end well."

A third commented: "This is going to come back to haunt him this afternoon. You just know it."

Things didn't much better for Everton after that and in the dying embers, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson did an impression of Pickford’s time wasting antics.

Jurgen Klopp's side went 1-0 up thanks to that Andy Robertson header before substitute Divock Origi, the man who loves a goal against Everton, scored late on to give Jurgen Klopp's side another crucial three points in the title race.

Here are the goals from this afternoon's clash at Anfield.
