‘Wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton’: Toffees’ hero Richarlison launches 1.37am Twitter blast at Jamie Carragher, who he has ‘no respect’ for, after his comments on his play-acting
- Everton beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on Thursday night to avoid Premier League drop
- Richarlison scored the equaliser for Everton as they came back from 2-0 down
- Jamie Carragher accused Richarlison of play-acting against Liverpool last month
Everton striker Richarlison has blasted Jamie Carragher on social medial – informing him that he has no respect for the Liverpool legend.
It was a busy few hours for Richarlison as he played a key role in helping Everton avoid Premier League relegation with a stunning comeback win against Crystal Palace.
Trailing 2-0 at half-time, the Toffees scored three goals after the break to ensure that it is mathematically impossible for them to drop down to the Championship next season.

Richarlison scored the equaliser on 75 minutes to send Goodison Park into raptures before the atmosphere increased ten-fold when Dominic Calvert-Lewin completed the comeback 10 minutes later.
And after the elation of Everton’s survival, Richarlison took to Twitter to throw shade at Carragher in the early hours of Friday morning.
‘Wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I don’t respect you’, he quipped to Carragher at 1.37am accompanied with an emoji.
Richarlison’s damning tweet appears to be in relation to two recent comments by Carragher.
Speaking ahead of the match, Carragher tweeted about Richarlison’s perceived gamesmanship, writing: ‘Talking about Richarlison going down is nothing to do with bias. Every Everton game I do he goes down three or four times like he’s got a big injury then just gets up! It’s not about getting a penalty or a foul but pretending he’s hurt when he’s not.’
The 44-year-old would swiftly delete the tweet in question but not before but not before Richarlison posted a gif of himself celebrating a goal with his fingers to his lips in reply to the pundit.
This was the latest comment by Carragher with the one before coming before last month’s Merseyside’s derby which Everton lost 2-0 at bitter rivals Liverpool.
Liverpool’s win, courtesy of second-half goals from Andrew Robertson and Divock Origi, was shrouded in controversy with Everton aggrieved at not winning penalty for Joel Matip’s collision with Anthony Gordon and Sadio Mane not being sent off for appearing to make contact with Mason Holgate’s eye.
Everton were unhappy that Liverpool refused to kick the ball out when Richarlison went down with an injury, leading to Abdoulaye Doucoure tripping Fabinho and picking up a booking as his frustration got the better of him.
However, Carragher felt Richarlison went down far too easily despite appearing to roll his right ankle nastily.
‘Honestly, get up. Get up, carry on,’ Carragher said of Richarlison during his co-commentary on Sky Sports.
‘If Doucoure gets a yellow card because his team-mate goes down. Stupid from Doucoure trying to stop the game but Richarlison… there’s nothing wrong with him.’
