Liverpool starlet injured after Everton horror tackle

Liverpool's stunning 3-3 draw in Saturday's Merseyside derby against fierce local rivals Everton at Goodison Park was marred by a quite shocking studs up challenge from midfielder Kevin Mirallas.

The Belgian international took leave of his senses with a disgraceful first-half lunge on Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez that should have been punished with an instant red card. As it was, however, referee Phil Dowd only deemed the offence worthy of a caution.

Just when it appeared that the furore from that aforementioned incident was beginning to die down, however, another Everton player has given more cause for concern after being sent off for a horror challenge on Liverpool's Pedro Chirivella during a clash between the rivals' respective U18 outfits.

Chivirella, a highly-rated Spanish youth international, was injured and had to be substituted after Joe Williams flew in recklessly with an evident disregard for the safety and well-being of his opponent.

The Liverpool starlet had actually managed to return to his feet just moments before the incident after being subject to another unsavoury and wholly reckless lunge.

It's safe to say that Williams was issued a red card for the following challenge that is sure to have riled Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers even further.

Despite losing Williams, Everton went on to win the game 3-1.
