“[We’re] Disappointed in so many ways,” Van Dijk began. “I think everyone has to look in the mirror and look at their own performance and ask if they really gave everything. Do they really want to win the league?”

He continued, “But if we play like we did overall today, not winning challenges and giving the ref the opportunity to give a free-kick like he did many, many times, then we have no chance to win the title.”

“It’s Everton’s night. You have to accept that as a Liverpool fan,” Carragher said. “It’s the end of the title run. They’ve just got to make sure they finish the season really strong now.”

Carragher acknowledged Liverpool’s missed opportunities and lack of clinical finishing, saying, “I don’t think it’s the time to get too angry with the team and Jurgen Klopp. It’s been a great ride but it’s Everton’s night.”
