People couldn't work out how Ross Barkley stayed on the pitch after a horror tackle on Jordan Henderson


Although by no means a classic Merseyside derby, Everton and Liverpool's latest clash did have its share of feisty tackles.

The worst came from Toffees midfielder Ross Barkley on his England counterpart Jordan Henderson - it was not good.

As late tackles go, this one had clearly misplaced its watch.

It was a miracle the England international was still on the pitch, as opposed to being red carded for the challenge.

Henderson was fortunate not to have been more seriously hurt.

But with a few incidents delaying the game, there was plenty of injury time to be had...

...and Liverpool managed to find a winner.

At the final whistle, both players put the incident behind them.

But both were fortunate that the tackle's consequences weren't as serious as they could have been.
