Liverpool and Everton were punished for their “massive altercation” during the Merseyside Derby.

After a “mass altercation” during the Merseyside derby on February 13, the Football Association punished both Liverpool and Everton.

The event happened during the Reds’ 2-0 Premier League victory at Anfield in the 86th minute.

According to the FA, both clubs did not take the necessary steps to guarantee that their players “conducted themselves in an orderly manner and refrained from provocative behavior.”

Everton has received a £40,000 fine, while Liverpool has received a $25,000 fine.

After being charged earlier this season at a home game against Crystal Palace, the Toffees were given a harsher punishment.

The incident involved players from both teams, including a few subs.

Following an initial altercation between Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Andrew Robertson, both players were shown yellow cards for their involvement.

“An Independent Regulatory Commission assessed their fines during a subsequent hearing,” the Football Association stated in a statement. “Its written reasons will be published in due course.”
