Everton just about scraped through against Lincoln City of League One in the Carabao Cup last night, to reach the third round where the sides who are competing in Europe join the tournament.
The Blues fell behind after just 20 seconds but turned the match around in the end, winning 2-4 after a testing 90 minutes in which they failed to convince.
It did not go unnoticed by Reds fans that Richarlison massively over-celebrated the final goal of the game, as he copied Lionel Messi’s famous celebration by removing his shirt and holding it up in front of the away end.
Not only was the celebration a little over-the-top for a cup game against lower league opponents, but the 22-year-old Brazilian also held up the name and number facing the pitch, not towards the Everton supporters.
