Liverpool secured all three points in the Merseyside derby following Sadio Mane's last-gasp winner but one of the main takeaways from the dull-affair was that of Ross Barkley's horror challenge on Jordan Henderson.

Rash tackles are the talk of the Premier League following Marcos Rojo's attempt to get a Christmas break as well as Jamie Vardy's harsh sending off at Stoke.

And the theme continued into Monday night as Ross Barkley got himself into the thick of the action with a lunging tackle.

The Evertonian caught the Liverpool skipper high on the ankle with Barkley lucky to escape with just a booking.

Though speaking after clinching bragging rights, Henderson spoke of the tackle and harbored no hard feelings to his fellow Englishman.

"It was pretty late but I know Ross well, he's a good lad." The England midfielder said post-match.

"He just mistimed the tackle. After the game you apologise but thankfully I'm alright. It was just mistimed, you'll get that in derby games. After the game you shake hands and move on."

Before praising the team on their brilliant second half performance which ultimately got them the victory.

"The boys were brilliant. In the second-half we dominated throughout and could have scored a few more."

Jurgen Klopp's men climbed to second in the league after the 1-nil victory heading into the busy Xmas schedule.
