Everton were up for a fight in the Merseyside Derby this weekend, with Jordan Pickford injuring Virgil van Dijk and Richarlison getting a red card for a challenge on Thiago.
The goalkeeper didn’t face any consequences for clattering our No.4, despite BT Sport’s in-house referee claiming it should have been a sending off.
In the final minutes of the game, Richarlison threw himself stood-first into Thiago – but the referee did at least manage to find his red card on a second attempt.
It was needless from the Everton man, and it now likely means the midfielder will be forced to sit out the next few games – at the very least.
Take a watch of the tackle below (via BT Sport):
