Everton: Fans stick by Richarlison after diving accusations

Everton fans have been sticking up for Richarlison on social media after recent criticism aimed towards their Brazilian forward.

The 22-year-old faced accusations of simulation after his sides 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

He had a potential penalty that was not given by referee Martin Atkinson after appearing to be fouled by Spurs’ defender Davinson Sanchez.

Paul Joyce of the Times believed that his “theatrics” were harming the club and used the example of a fan sat behind him in the Goodison Park press box to substantiate his views on the former Watford winger.

Manager Marco Silva resolutely defended his player and used the point that Richarlison has not been booked for diving in the Premier League, but added that he needs to work on his strength.

Supporters were in full support of the Toffees’ No. 7 and made their feelings clear on social media about the finger-pointing in the media, targeting Joyce in particular.
