Silva and Howe dis­ap­pointed with ref­eree

Evening Times - - SPORT -

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.”
