Everton fans acted furiously as it was revealed that the Toffees have not received a single penalty during the current campaign.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been unfortunate when it comes to being awarded penalty decisions this season after several shouts during recent games, particularly Theo Walcott’s claims against Brighton after he cleared looked to be dragged by the Seagulls’ Lewis Dunk. The anger reflects from the reverse fixture in November, where the Premier League admitted they made a mistake in awarding the South Coast side a spot-kick during the Toffees’ 3-2 defeat at the Amex Stadium.
Everton are one of only three teams (with Newcastle and Norwich) who have not been awarded a penalty in the Premier League so far this season. #EFC

So more than half way through the season and they’re heading for less penalties. But still getting so many decisions badly wrong and it always seems to be the same teams.
