Football fans react to the treatment Patrice Evra received vs Liverpool

Patrice Evra might be buzzing to be back playing Premier League football but he probably won’t be thanking David Moyes for handing him his debut against Liverpool at Anfield.

With the attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in irresistible form, you couldn’t blame Evra for fearing the worst.

And the Frenchman couldn’t help his West Ham side fall to a 4-1 defeat with Mane, Salah and Firmino all getting on the scoresheet, alongside Emre Can’s header.

But Evra was returning to the ground where he experienced one of the worst days of his playing career so far.

That came back in 2011, where he clashed with Luis Suarez.

The left-back accused Suarez of racially abusing him during the 1-1 draw, something that led to an eight-match ban for the then-Liverpool striker.

Liverpool then controversial defended Suarez throughout and even wore t-shirts of support for the Uruguayan ahead of their clash against Wigan.

So, when Evra made an appearance back at Anfield, the reception he received was always going to be interesting.

And Liverpool fans certainly didn’t forget.

They booed him throughout and even started singing Suarez’s song when Evra made a foul.

It was something that saw plenty of football fans on Twitter slam Kopites for their behaviour.


Check out the reaction:

On the pitch, though, Liverpool will be very happy with their afternoon’s work.

They thrashed West Ham 4-1 and leapfrogged Manchester United in second place.

They can now sit back and enjoy United take on Chelsea, knowing that one - or both - of them will be dropping points.
