'Wash Your Mouth': Richarlison Lays Into Jamie Carragher After Everton Secure Premier League Survival

Everton hero Richarlison has sent a fiery message to Jamie Carragher after the Toffees secured their Premier League status with victory over Crystal Palace.

Frank Lampard's side needed to beat Palace at Goodison Park on Thursday night to avoid heading into the final day of the season with their top-flight status still in doubt.

Things began badly for the home side when Jean-Philippe Mateta put Palace ahead before Jordan Ayew handed the visitors a two-goal lead.

But a spirited second-half comeback saw Everton drag themselves level through goals from Michael Keane and Richarlison.

And with five minutes remaining in normal time, Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed in a dramatic winner for Everton, sparking wild celebrations and a pitch invasion at Goodison Park.

After the match, Richarlison sent a message on Twitter to former Liverpool defender Carragher, who has previously criticised the Brazilian's behaviour in last month's Merseyside derby at Anfield.

"@Carra23 wash your mouth before you talk about me and everton and I don't respect you," Richarlison tweeted, followed by the smiling poo emoji.

Sky Sports pundit Carragher had criticised Richarlison for what he perceived to be play-acting in Everton's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool last month.

"Honestly, get up. Get up, carry on," Carragher said of Richarlison.

"If [Abdoulaye] Doucoure gets a yellow card because his teammate goes down. Stupid from Doucoure trying to stop the game but Richarlison... there's nothing wrong with him."

It was not the first time Carragher had accused Richarlison of diving.

Back in 2020, he wrote on Twitter: "Talking about Richarlison going down is nothing to do with bias.

"Every EFC game I do he goes down 3/ times like he's got a big injury then just gets up!

"It's not about getting a penalty or a foul but pretending he's hurt when he's not."

Everton's victory threatens to be overshadowed by a shocking incident at full-time, when Palace boss Patrick Vieira appeared to kick pitch invader who taunted him at the end of the match.

Footage showed Vieira being goaded by an Everton supporter as fans ran on to the pitch to celebrate their victory.

The Frenchman appeared to kick out at the fan, causing him to fall to the ground.

"I have nothing to say about that," Vieira said, when asked about the incident during his post-match news conference.
