Gary Neville Criticises Everton Players for Merseyside Derby Goal Against Liverpool

UK News

Gary Neville was highly critical of Everton duo Jordan Pickford and Seamus Coleman following their mistakes which gifted Liverpool the opening goal of the Merseyside derby. Liverpool capitalized on a swift counter attack after James Tarkowski hit the post from a corner. Darwin Nunez was able to get the ball to Mohamed Salah who volleyed home, with Pickford seemingly caught in no man’s land. Neville commented that “It’s not interesting it’s just bad. I have no idea what he’s doing. It’s almost as if he thinks the ball is not going to end up at Salah’s feet. It’s going to go to the back post. He makes a real mess of it, it’s an open goal he makes it very easy for Mo Salah.” Jamie Carragher agreed with Neville, saying “You have to question the goalkeeper, I mean where is he going? He finds himself in no-mans land and they’re the fine margins of a Merseyside derby.” Additionally, Neville criticized Coleman for failing to stop Nunez, allowing the counter attack to happen so easily. He noted that “At the edge of the box you look at Coleman, once you go there you can’t stop. You’ve got to go win it and take everything or give a foul away. He jumps, he doesn’t delay the counter he quickens it up and we know how brilliant they are on the counter. They’ve been like that for years.” Liverpool would later double their lead shortly after the break, with Cody Gakpo scoring his first goal for the club. Gary Neville’s comments clearly demonstrate his dissatisfaction with the errors made by Pickford and Coleman, which ultimately cost Everton in the Merseyside derby.
