Indeed, the Brazil international was shown a straight red card for a bad challenge on Thiago Alcantara late in the game, which finished 2-2 at Goodison Park.
Will Richarlison leave Everton next year?
Richarlison will now miss the next three matches for Carlo Ancelotti’s team in what could be a big blow to the Goodison Park faithful given that he has scored a rather impressive four goals and supplied a further two assists in seven games in all competitions so far this term, as per Transfermarkt.
The next three matches for the Toffees are all in the Premier League as they face Southampton and Newcastle United away and then Manchester United at home.

Absolute top drawer Richy. Things happen in the heat of battle. You have suffered at the same time. These type of games require no quarter given. Well played today. All over the pitch and unlucky not to score. Your contribution was immense. NSNO
