Jamie Carragher has responded to Richarlison after the Everton forward told the former Liverpool defender to "wash your mouth".
Angry at recent criticism from Sky Sports pundit Carragher, Richarlison took to Twitter after Everton guaranteed their Premier League status for another season with a dramatic 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday.
"@Carra23 wash your mouth before you talk about me and everton and I don't respect you," Richarlison tweeted, followed by the smiling poo emoji.
Carragher responded to those comments on Friday morning by praising Richarlison, who scored in the win over Palace at Goodison Park.
"I actually quite like this, if Twitter was about when I was a player I'm sure I would've called pundits out quite a lot!!," Carragher posted.
Carragher had previously accused Richarlison play-acting in last month's Merseyside derby at Anfield, which ended in a 2-0 win for Liverpool.
"Honestly, get up. Get up, carry on," Carragher said of Richarlison.

"If [Abdoulaye] Doucoure gets a yellow card because his teammate goes down. Stupid from Doucoure trying to stop the game but Richarlison... there's nothing wrong with him."
Carragher's colleague at Sky Sports, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, saw the funny side of Richarlison's tweet.
He took to Twitter to post his own response, commenting: "Know how you feel mate."
Everton needed to beat Palace to avoid heading into the final day of the season with their top-flight status still in doubt.
But they found themselves 2-0 down at half-time after goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew.
Michael Keane pulled one back for the Toffees after the break before Richarlison equalised for Everton with his 11th goal of the season.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin then completed a remarkable comeback for the home side, scoring the winner five minutes from time.
His goal sparked wild celebrations and a pitch invasion, with fans entering the field of play for a second time at the full-time whistle.
But the victory threatens to be overshadowed by an unsavoury incident at the end of the match, when Palace manager Patrick Vieira appeared to kick out at an Everton fan who was taunting him on the pitch.
Vieira refused to comment on the incident in his post-match press conference and the FA have since confirmed that an investigation has been launched.
