Jake Paul poses in Liverpool shirt and tweets praise for Divock Origi after Everton win
Jake Paul posted two snaps of himself in a Liverpool kit before the Merseyside derby

Jake Paul left fans in no doubt who he was supporting in the Merseyside derby as he posed in a full Liverpool kit.

Controversial social media star Paul, 25, has shown a real liking for the beautiful game recently, tweeting his support for the Reds as they took on Manchester United last week. He threw his weight behind Jurgen Klopp's side once again on Sunday afternoon as they prepared to take on Everton at Anfield.

With kick-off fast approaching in the north west, Paul tweeted out two pictures of himself wearing a Liverpool kit. In one of the snaps, the YouTuber-turned-boxer can be seen flexing his muscles.

In the other picture, Paul is not facing the camera but pointing at the name on the back of his shirt - none other than Reds no.11 Salah.

Paul tagged Salah in the tweet, which said: "Shouts to Mo Salah @MoSalah Liverpool rivalry today but my apologies to Everton…the Blues are getting spanked by The Reds."

Everton didn't quite get spanked by their neighbours, but they were unable to lay a glove on them as goals from Andrew Robertson and Divock Origi sealed a 2-0 win.

Paul was clearly keeping abreast of events over at Anfield as later on he tweeted: "Divock Origi," with an emoji of two hands raised to the sky.

Reds boss Klopp concurred with Paul's praise of the Belgian striker, who has cropped up with some big goals for Liverpool during his eight years at Anfield.

"If he leaves, he will explode wherever he goes," Klopp said after the game. "He is a world-class striker, he is a legend and will stay a legend forever. He doesn't always make the squad which is ridiculous, but he is there when we need him every time.

"Everything that we did in the second half, without Divock, wouldn't have happened. The group lives because of the boys that don't always play, they are the strongest players ever; [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, [Harvey] Elliot, [Takumi] Minamino, even Rhys Williams. They are in great shape, but the way they behave is why we do these kind of things."
