Everton: Keith Hackett spots injustice before Jarrad Branthwaite red card

Everton: Keith Hackett spots injustice before Jarrad Branthwaite red card -Everton News

Former Premier League referee Keith Hackett has now spotted a huge injustice for Everton before Jarrad Branthwaite was given a red card against Brentford.

The Lowdown: Damaging defeat for Everton

It was a damaging result for Frank Lampard’s team at Goodison Park as they fell to a 3-2 defeat, having eventually being reduced to nine men after Salomon Rondon was also sent off.

It means that they still need to get a win against either Crystal Palace or Arsenal in order to guarantee their place in the top flight for 2022/23.

Richarlison had converted a penalty on the stroke of half-time to put the Toffees 2-1 ahead, but it appears that the Brazilian ought to already have had the chance to score from the spot before then.

The Latest: Should Everton have had a second penalty?

Replying to a fan on Twitter, Hackett has claimed that Everton should also have been given a penalty for the pulling of Richarlison’s shirt in the box just a few seconds before Branthwaite was sent off, at which point the Toffees were leading 1-0.

The former top-flight official insisted: “Yes it was. Richarlison having his shirt nearly wrapped off should have been penalised.”

Should Everton have hired Lampard?

No

The Verdict: Frustrating

It will be very frustrating for Everton to know that they perhaps should have had a penalty before Branthwaite’s red card, which would ultimately have cancelled out the sending off and given them a chance to go 2-0 up in the game inside 20 minutes.

In the end, the defender’s early dismissal cost them as the Toffees ended up losing, which could well be the difference between staying up and suffering relegation.

Nonetheless, Lampard and his team must now put this game behind them and focus on trying to get the three points against Palace, which would ultimately keep them up.
