Barkley apologised to Henderson for tackle….

Ross Barkley and Jordan Henderson

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley apologised to Jordan Henderson for his late tackle during Liverpool’s win at Goodison Park, says the Reds captain. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Toffees manager Ronald Koeman said Barkley, who was booked, might have been “lucky” not to be sent off. “It was pretty late, but I know Ross well. He’s a good lad,” his England team-mate Henderson told Sky Sports. “Thankfully I’m OK. It was mistimed and he apologised after. It’s a derby – it doesn’t matter if you’re friends off the field.” Former Everton midfielder Kevin Kilbane told Match of the Day 2: “Barkley is lucky from two sides. He’s lucky he didn’t get a red card and lucky Henderson didn’t get a serious injury.”
