Patrice Evra vs Luis Suarez
An old wound was reopened at Anfield on Saturday as West Ham travelled to Liverpool in the Premier League.
Patrice Evra was in the West Ham XI against Liverpool, starting on the left-hand side for the Hammers.
Evra, of course, has a long history with former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
When Evra was a Man United player, he got into a furious feud with Suarez. Evra accused Suarez of racial abuse, and the Liverpool striker was banned for eight matches.
Liverpool fans go after West Ham’s Evra
During Saturday’s match at Anfield, whenever Evra touched the ball, the home crowd got on his back.
Reports from Anfield recording how Liverpool fans sung Luis Suarez songs at Evra.
Thos reports sparked a backlash on social media.
Is it OK to go after a victim of racial abuse? Should the Liverpool fans be embarrassed for their behaviour?
Reaction to the Liverpool chants at Patrice Evra are below.

So many weirdos on here. Haven’t even mentioned the Suarez – Evra situation and people are on it straight away! Wake up people! When a ex player from Man U comes to Anfield you always want the player to have a bad afternoon! Just normal people, so stop pretending you know

Liverpool fans booing Evra and chanting Luis Suarez, the player who racially abused him, at him.
The same fans that slam someone for buying a newspaper because it offends them. Strange club.

Liverpool fans relentlessly booing Patrice Evra inside the first 30 minutes – the victim of racist abuse, and now chanting Luis Suarez’s name, directed towards at Evra. You stay classy, Liverpool FC.
