Silva and Howe disappointed with referee
EVERTON manager Marco Silva and Bournemouth counterpart Eddie Howe were both unhappy with the performance of referee Anthony Taylor in the Toffees’ 2-0 win at Goodison Park.
Howe felt the already-booked midfielder Andre Gomes could have been sent off for a second yellow card after two separate fouls in quick succession and also believed his side should have had at least one “stonewall” penalty.
Silva was a little more circumspect in his criticism, choosing to agree with the majority of fans at Goodison Park who roundly booed the official at the final whistle.
“I thought the first one could have been a yellow card, the second one could’ve been a yellow card and when you add them up together he’s very lucky to stay on the pitch,” was Howe’s opinion on Gomes’ two challenges.
“He could’ve given a penalty away at the end but I think he’s lucky to be on the pitch at that stage.”
