Lionel Messi Scarves On Sale Outside Everton Vs Burnley Game
Liverpool fans will think they can't get away from Lionel Messi this week after his two goals and all the plaudits that have followed and now he's even turned up in their city.
If you're a Liverpool fan then there's a good chance that for the last two nights you've woken up in a cold sweat after seeing Lionel Messi's free kick for the umpteenth time in your dreams.
On Wednesday night Jurgen Klopp's side were doing pretty well away to Barcelona in the semi-final of the Champions League. Sure they were 1-0 down but they dominated large parts of the second half.
Just as the pressure was ramping up on Barca their captain stepped up and virtually ended the tie with two goals, including the ridiculous free kick that made it 3-0.
Even Klopp could only smile and appreciate the genius of the set piece that likely ended his side's hopes of becoming European champions this year.
If the Reds were hoping that a return to domestic football would help them get away from their nightmares then they were very much mistaken.
Ahead of Everton's Premier League game against Burnley Messi scarves were spotted on sale, really rubbing salt into the wound:

Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be a more hated scarf in football than a half and half scarf this comes along.
Imagine the outrage from Liverpool fans, and they'll probably have a point on this occasion.
It's one thing for Everton fans to mock their rivals for losing but no one could have stopped Messi's free kick and the Toffees are having a bit of a nothing season whilst the Reds could still win the league title.
Of course Everton fans could make things even worse if they start wearing half Everton and half Barca scarves or worse still half and half with Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola's side still leading the way in the title race.
Will Messi add to the misery for the red half of Merseyside next week?
