Everton: Fans fume as Son Heung-Min’s red card is overturned

Everton fans were furious as Spurs’ winger Son Heung-Min’s red card was rescinded after the Blues’ 1-1 draw against Tottenham.

The South Korea international was shown a red card by referee Martin Atkinson after his foul on Andre Gomes led to the fractured dislocation of his right ankle as the Portuguese midfielder landed awkwardly on the Goodison Park turf.

Atkinson originally only produced a yellow card but upgraded it once he saw the extent of the injury to the former Barcelona middle man.

Goals from Dele Alli and Cenk Tosun in the second half meant that the shares were spoiled. However, the game was overshadowed by Gomes’ trauma.

After the north London side appealed the decision, the FA agreed and overturned the red card which means that Son will not face a ban despite causing a serious career-threatening injury to another player.

Fans were outraged with the decision and made their feelings clear on social media.

Here are some of the many angry reactions from Everton fans:
