Everton’s wild Anfield dressing room celebrations emerge after Liverpool win

Everton's wild changing room celebrations were on display this evening after they beat Liverpool at Anfield.

It was the Toffees' first win at the home of their local rivals in 22 years, which led to pretty jubilant scenes on the pitch at full-time.

But they were soon dwarfed in comparison as footage showed Everton playing and coaching staff blowing off some steam in the away dressing room.

Youth star Niels Nkounkou, who was an unused substitute in the 2-0 win, posted the footage to his Snapchat, with the caption: "Anfield is blue"

In the videos, stars such as Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Andre Gomes and assistant manager Duncan Ferguson can be seen jumping up and down, screaming and spraying drinks around the room.

The delight was also clear to see from Ferguson at full-time, with the Scot fighting back tears of happiness as he hugged Everton players.

The win all-but ends Liverpool's faint hopes of regaining the title with them now 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.

As for Everton, Carlo Ancelotti's side are now up to seventh, level on points with their Merseyside rivals.

“I am very pleased for the club and the supporters. I hope for sure that they are going to celebrate tonight,” Ancelotti told Sky Sports.

“It was a good performance. A lot of fight and spirit. I am really happy.

“We played with two strikers James Rodriguez and Richarlison and we played with [Seamus] Coleman to fix the position of Robertson and four at the back to control [Mohamed] Salah, [Sadio] Mane and [Roberto] Firmino.

“We wanted to avoid the pressure from Liverpool. We know they press a lot but sometimes we had the opportunity to play. Richarlison is back. He is scoring and is playing with a lot of consistency. He has that quality.

“We have to find more consistency at home and we are working on this. We are fighting for Europe and now we are in a good position. This kind of performance helps to improve the belief of the team.

“Jordan [Pickford] did really well. He accepted the criticism. You have to do that and try to be better and he did it.”
