It was a disappointing Sunday afternoon for Everton as they fell to a 1-0 FA Cup loss against city rivals Liverpool in Anfield. A Curtis Jones wonder strike proved crucial and the frustration for Carlo Ancelotti's side was evident as players exchange words with members of the crowd post-match.
Footage emerged after the match of an angry Mason Holgate and Seamus Coleman as they made their way down the tunnel. The duo can be seen in heated discussions with an unidentified member of the crowd.
The Everton players showed more fight in the tunnel than on the pitch!

Coleman was replaced by Moise Kean just after the hour mark. He has been honest in his appraisal of the club's season so far and recently called for them to start challenging for some silverware under a "world-class manager" like Ancelotti.
For his part, the newly appointed boss was not impressed by the overall performance.
"I am not used to speaking to the players after the game, but I am going to speak to them about this," he said post-match.
"I think in the second half we were not able to keep the right ideas on the pitch as we did in the first half, when we had [the] opportunity to score. The fact we didn't score in the first half affected the performance in the second half, which was not good enough."
