In the clip, the Liverpool defender can be seen lunging in on the Brazil international after passing the ball to his captain Jordan Henderson. However, the incident happened off of the ball and it is up for debatable whether Robertson meant to do it or not.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
The game finished 2-2, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team twice coming from behind through goals from Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, before Richarlison got himself sent off in the closing minutes.
However, if Robertson had been sent off for the challenge on Allan, then it may have been a completely different match, but in a game that was jam-packed full of incidents, that is purely hypothetical.
Everton fan reaction to Robertson challenge
These members of the Goodison Park faithful were fuming on Twitter after looking back at the incident, with one Everton supporter describing the challenge from Robertson as ‘dreadful’:
Ahh different rules for them

@GaryLineker any chance you can discuss this dreadful challenge… or does it not fit the story being written?

Yep, knew exactly what he was doing. The worst tackle in the football match

Shocking mate, weird how @btsportfootball weren’t stamping their feet for a red like Keown and Macmanaman were over Pickford 🤔

They only replayed poor tackles on Liverpool playersand #lfc chances. Such biased coverage.
