Jordan Pickford has probably spent the majority of today researching trips to the moon, and he won’t feel any better when he hears the new song Liverpool fans have devised about him after yesterday’s Merseyside Derby.
After a cagey 90 minutes, it looked like Liverpool and Everton would be forced to share the points after failing to break each other down at Anfield, but nobody could’ve foreseen the drama awaiting in the 96th minute.
As Virgil van Dijk lumped a hopeful ball back into the penalty area, substitute and forgotten man Divock Origi refused to give up on a hopeless cause, and when Pickford somehow failed to tip it over the bar, the Belgian gleefully knocked it home and sparked an all-time classic celebration from Klopp.
Well, it looks like Pickford’s failure to clear van Dijk’s speculative effort could follow him around for a few years to come:

For what it’s worth, we don’t think Pickford particularly has little arms, but lets just say we think he’ll be hearing this little ditty for his next few visits to the red half of Merseyside for a couple of years to come.
What do you think of the song?
