Liverpool fans react on Twitter as defender stretchered off ahead of Everton clash

By Will Butcher

Liverpool fans have reacted amusingly on Twitter after Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori suffered a knee injury while playing for Argentina.

The 26-year-old was stretchered off the pitch in Bolivia during the first half, as Argentina suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat in their 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The Liverpool Echo claim that Funes Mori is now a doubt for Saturday’s Merseyside derby, adding to the Toffees defensive woes following the broken leg sustained by Seamus Coleman.

Funes Mori is despised by Liverpool fans, following his dangerous tackle on striker Divock Origi in last season’s Merseyside derby at Anfield that saw him receive his marching orders.

Liverpool fans reacted comically on Twitter, with some claiming that they would rather have the former River Plate defender starting for the Toffees.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Liverpool are not without their own injury problems ahead of Saturday’s clash, with captain Jordan Henderson a doubt to recover from a foot injury. Adam Lallana has also been ruled out after picking up a thigh injury with England.

The Reds will be hoping to continue their 18-year record of going unbeaten against Everton at Anfield, with the Toffees last winning away back in 1999 in a 1-0 win.
