Liverpool, Everton fined by FA over chaotic fracas after Jordan Pickford barged into Andrew Robertson at Merseyside derby

Local rivals Liverpool and Everton have been fined over their chaotic contentions involving Jordan Pickford, Andrew Robertson, and co. during the Merseyside Derby.

The Merseyside derby is one of the fiercest fixtures in English football, and is eagerly anticipated by fans of both clubs as the rivalry between the two clubs is one of the oldest and most intense in English football history.

It was Everton’s trip to the Anfield for the 242 Merseyside Derby and when the game was stretched at the dying minutes, players went on to confront themselves following the kicking off the ball by Andrew Robertson just before Everton was ready to take the free kick.

Simon Hooper was on charge of the violent engagement between the local rivals and the referee showed yellow card to both Robertson and Pickford.

However, as it appeared, this is not the only punishment they will receive as English FA has fined both teams with a charge of violation and failing to keep the cool on the pitch.

A statement read: ” Liverpool and Everton have been charged following a mass confrontation during the 86th minute of their Premier League match on Monday 13 February.”

“It’s alleged that both clubs failed to ensure their players and/or benches conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.”

“Liverpool and Everton and until Monday 20 February to provide responses to their charges.”- the statement concluded.

Merseyside derby is known for its intense atmosphere, with both sets of local fans passionate about their respective clubs as the matches have also produced some memorable moments, including dramatic late goals, controversial incidents, and stunning performances from individual players.

Liverpool overcame the difficulties at ease after Mo. Salah and Cody Gakpo scored for the All Reds and broke the winning deadlock in 2023 as Jurgen Klopp felt relieved.
