Liverpool is red following Sunday's pulsating Merseyside derby at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's men needed a stroke of luck to claim victory over Everton as Jordan Pickford made a huge mistake in the 95th minute.

The England goalkeeper failed to push Virgil van Dijk's looping volley over the bar and instead palmed the ball straight into Divock Origi's path to head home.

Pickford said in his post-match interview with BT Sport that he will get over his error, but Jamie Carragher reckons it will haunt him.

"What was Jordan Pickford doing?" said Carragher on Sky Sports. "Just put that away, goalkeeper. Let it go over the bar.

"A massive mistake, you can't do that at any time in a Merseyside derby. He (Pickford) looked erratic all game, he didn't look comfortable.

"It's a massive, massive error. A nightmare situation. That will haunt him."

Everton headed into the derby hoping to end the 20-year curse that hasn't seen them win at Anfield since 1999.

But they failed and one man who sought to remind Everton fans of that fact was former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

Except his efforts somewhat backfired. After tweeting his delight about the result, Reina received some abuse from a Twitter user who said Pickford's mistake reminded him of the Spaniard.

Reina naturally assumed the Twitter user was an Everton fan, so he hit back by mocking the fact they haven't won at Anfield in 20 years.

It was the perfect response to a troll, but it turns out the fan is actually a Liverpool supporter - he was just trying to have a bit of banter.

Awkward. Reina mistakenly mocked one of his own fans, but you can hardly blame him after having his goalkeeping questioned.
