Richarlison Channels His Inner Kerlon With 'Seal Dribble' Keep-Ups Against Manchester United

Richarlison paid homage to fellow Brazilian Kerlon with a 'seal dribble' against Manchester United - and if you're too young to understand that reference, then I recommend giving it a quick Google search. You will not be disappointed.

The 24-year-old Everton forward, who has scored seven goals in 29 appearances for club and country this season, decided to indulge in some good old fashion showboating during Saturday's Premier League clash at Goodison Park.

In the 56th minute, he casually ran with the ball on his head, despite being pressurised by a couple of United players.


How good was that? After the final whistle, Everton boss Frank Lampard admitted that he was ready to go "old school" on Richarlison when he pulled off the trick.

"I was ready to go all old school on him and tell him off for that," he told BT Sport. "But I'm not going to because he ran his sock off as he does here. The fans love him because he runs and gives everything.

"Five little keepy-uppy headers are not for me if he gives it away after that, but he had a good day."


Richarlison certainly had a good day and so did his teammates on a must-win afternoon for the Toffees.

A disappointing midweek defeat against relegation rivals Burnley left many Everton fans at their lowest point all season but to their credit, they were in full voice as their team bounced back in style at Goodison.

Anthony Gordon's strike in the 27th minute was enough to seal a crucial win for Lampard's men, who now sit four points above the relegation zone. The atmosphere was electric all afternoon, especially after this effort.


Everton midfielder Fabian Delph says the result was a "massive relief" for everyone at the club.

"Coming off the back of the last game there was a lot of disappointment," he told BT Sport. "Heads were down, as you'd expect. We came into it with a good game plan. We had to stick together at times, but we did that and got the three points.

"We expected them to have chances. They're a top team with top players. It was about sticking together and riding the storm. We managed to do that. It's a massive relief for the players, management and everyone associated with Everton."
