Everton were beaten by Watford on Saturday afternoon as Marco Silva returned to Vicarage Road, however, things got worse for him after the final whistle.
The Toffees were poor throughout the game and failed to produce anything of quality in the game and to make matters worse, one of their main players was subsequently sent off after the final whistle.
According to a report by Sky Sports, Kurt Zouma was shown two yellow cards after confronting referee Lee Probert.
It is understood the Chelsea loanee was arguing the decision of the official to award Watford the corner from which they scored the winning goal.
The 24-year-old, who was arguably Everton’s best player on the pitch at Vicarage Road, will now be suspended for the game against Cardiff City.
Zouma’s suspension will come as a huge blow to Silva and Everton as the pressure continues to mount at the Goodison Park outfit.
The defender has been a mainstay in the team this season during his loan spell from Chelsea and has been a key performer for the Merseyside outfit.
It will be hugely disappointing that the Frenchman’s dismissal could have been avoided, however, they will have to make do without him for the Cardiff game and hope he is not further punished – with Liverpool being their following opponents.
