Everton: Fans hammer Graeme Souness over contrasting verdicts on De Gea fouls

Everton: Fans hammer Graeme Souness over contrasting verdicts on De Gea fouls - Everton

Speaking to Sky Sports via MU Live last December, pundit Graeme Souness hinted that Everton’s goal during their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford should’ve been disallowed due to a foul on David De Gea but went the opposite way when speaking about the similar Virgil Van Dijk incident on Sunday – prompting many Toffees supporters to slam the ‘worthless’ verdict.

According to quotes on Sky Sports via the Daily Mail, Souness thought that Liverpool’s would-be second goal from Roberto Firmino should’ve stood – but was instead ruled out through VAR due to another perceived foul on De Gea. The incidents, while looking identical in nature, could debatably hold contrasting reasons as to why one was given and the other withheld – but that hasn’t stopped some Everton fans hinting at some slight hypocrisy from the former Liverpool icon.

For the Toffees’ goal at Old Trafford, striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin appeared to get his arm on the way of a De Gea attempt to punch the ball clear from a corner, resulting in the ball deflecting in off Victor Lindelof. However, after comparing the opposing verdicts from Souness, Toffees supporters took to social media and slammed the Scottish pundit for his take – find all of their best comments down below.
