Joey Barton comments on Liverpool v Everton, Mario Balotelli and John Stones

Balotelli Milan

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has his say on the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield on Saturday was watched by football followers around the world.

It was also followed by Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton, who did not hold back his opinion on the Premier League clash.

Everton defender John Stones was certainly one of the best players on the pitch and was a key reason why Liverpool had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Barton’s comments about Mario Balotelli seem interesting. Earlier this week, the former Newcastle United and Manchester City star claimed that the Liverpool striker is ‘the biggest myth in world football’.

On Saturday, Balotelli had a poor game against Everton. The 24-year-old did make an effort and tried to help out his teammates, but his match stats suggest that he hardly did much.

The former Inter Milan and AC Milan star had just two shots on target, 10 accurate passes and created no chance whatsoever.
