Silva left slightly less un­happy than Howe

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

EVER­TON man­ager Marco Silva and Bournemouth coun­ter­part Ed­die Howe were both un­happy with the per­for­mance of ref­eree An­thony Tay­lor in the Tof­fees’ 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’s 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.”

Specif­i­cally on the spot­kick de­ci­sions – one in the first half and the other late in the sec­ond on Jef­fer­son Lerma – the Cher­ries boss added: “The first one I thought at the time was a penalty on David Brooks, but I haven’t seen it again.

“Then, I am told, but I haven’t seen it, we should have had a ‘stonewaller’ at the end of the game. Again that is how these things are go­ing for us.”

Bournemouth have now had nine de­feats in their last 12 league matches but vic­tory for Ever­ton, achieved through on-loan Chelsea de­fender Kurt Zouma’s first for the club and Do­minic Calvert-Lewin’s added­time strike, ended a run of one win in eight league matches.

Silva, how­ever, was un­happy with Tay­lor for not giv­ing a foul against Josh King when a tan­gle with Zouma set up Brooks to hit a post.
