Gary Lineker took to social media to poke fun at Liverpool FC and Everton after their goalless draw in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds made a number of changes to their starting line-up as Jurgen Klopp rotated his team ahead of next week’s crunch clash against Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Mohamed Salah missed the game due to the injury he picked up in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final clash at Anfield last week.

Klopp also opted to start Roberto Firmino on the bench for the derby showdown as he looked to give his side the best chance of being able to progress through to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The game ended up being a fairly uninspiring affair as both teams ended up having to settle for a point after a dreary goalless draw at Goodison Park.

That said, Everton did have a few chances to clinch a winner late on against their bitter local rivals.

And England legend Lineker couldn’t help but take to social media to poke a bit of fun at the two Merseyside clubs after the disappointing goalless draw.

Lineker tweeted mid-way through the second half: “What time does the Merseyside derby start?”

Liverpool FC will now turn their attentions back towards Champions League affairs and their trip to The Etihad on Tuesday night.
