Everton fans on Twitter shocked by Andre Gomes’ Bournemouth display

Yesterday, whilst the papers will be running headlines to do with Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham at Wembley, Everton fans will be delighted to have returned to winning ways with a 2-0 home win over Bournemouth. However, it could have been a very different game had Anthony Taylor opted to send off Andre Gomes.

The Portuguese midfielder has been one of the stars of this Everton side so far this season. However, yesterday he was booked for what appeared to be dissent with 25 minutes left to play, and after having his name taken he proceeded to commit two more fouls, and either of them could easily have been enough for Taylor to produce the second yellow card for the on-loan Barcelona man.

The disciplinary blip won’t be enough to convince the Toffees that the midfielder isn’t the one for them and they’re all still desperate to see him put pen to paper on a permanent contract. All they wanted was to see Gomes easy up and read the game a tad better when he had been booked, as with the game finely poised at 1-0 until they scored a late second, if he had been given his marching orders it could have been very costly for his side.

You can see what the Toffees had to say to Gomes after the game here:

The Toffees love Andre Gomes, but it’s true that he’s no used to them when he’s suspended so they’ll be keen for him to avoid walking the tightrope like he did yesterday.
