Everton full-back Lucas Digne was shown a red card this afternoon for a clumsy challenge on Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters.
The sending off comes with a palpable sense of irony as the Frenchman openly joked about Richarlison’s red card after clattering Thiago in the Merseyside Derby last weekend.
The incident which got Digne sent off happened just 20 minutes from the full-time whistle, as the Blues fell 2-0 to the Saints away from home.
The Frenchman was trying to chase down Walker-Peters and stood on the back of his leg, riding it like a skateboard and bringing the player down.
Take a watch of the video below (via Sky Sports):

Walker metió el pie? Joder pero si iba adelante de Digne. Soy objetivo amigo, digne venia caliente, desde antes. Mira esta toma. Obvio el la disimula muy bien, pero muy bien podía pisar en otro lado pic.twitter.com/A2c40oaySG
