Everton: Podcaster fumes at ‘absurd’ Jordan Ayew incident

Everton: Podcaster fumes at ‘absurd’ Jordan Ayew incident -Everton News

Everton podcaster and football scout Ryan Williams was left fuming over an incident involving Jordan Ayew in the Toffees’ 3-0 win at home to Crystal Palace.

The Lowdown: Three points

Frank Lampard’s team earned themselves an emphatic three points at Goodison Park this afternoon thanks to goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Anthony Gordon and Dwight McNeil.

It lifts them up to 11th in the Premier League table, and they can now start to look up instead of down, having ended a run of three straight defeats.

The Latest: ‘Absurd’ incident

Despite the win, Williams took to Twitter fuming over the decision from referee Simon Hooper not to give Ayew a yellow card in the second half, despite his persistent fouling, even going as far as to call it ‘absurd’.

The podcaster raged: “This is absurd. The refereeing is just completely one-sided at this point. Ayew with another aggressive play that was a foul, no call, no card, and then a foul on DCL.”

The Verdict: Result most important

Although Everton can feel aggrieved by some of the decisions which went against them, the result is the most important thing.

That said, The Athletic reporter Patrick Boyland was also critical of Hooper’s refereeing performance and called Ayew a ‘repeat offender’.

Palace picked up four bookings in total, including three in the 68th minute, showing how overly aggressive they were at times in the second half, but that should be a compliment to how well the hosts were playing that their opponents felt they had to resort to such heavy-handed play.

Nonetheless, Lampard will not worry too much about the standard of officiating today as his side got an emphatic win in front of their home supporters.
