Good news for Man United: Everton’s Andre Gomes charged with violent conduct

Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has been hit with a violent conduct charge by the FA, following the Portuguese midfielder’s late challenge on Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrović.

Fulham 2-0 Everton

Marco Silva’s Toffees travelled to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, hoping to keep their superb recent run of form alive.

Ahead of kick-off in London, the Merseysiders had picked up a trio of consecutive victories over Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal, all without conceding a goal.

Fulham, on the other hand, headed into proceedings in the midst of an abysmal streak of form, having fallen to defeat in 9 straight Premier League outings.

As such, it came as a major upset when the Cottagers eventually emerged with a deserved 2-0 win.

Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel bagged the goals for Scott Parker’s men, in a largely-dominant showing.

Gomes charged

And, on the back of their surprise defeat, Everton have this evening been dealt a further blow.

As confirmed by the FA, Toffees’ midfielder Andre Gomes has been charged with violent conduct.

Footage emerging in the aftermath of Fulham’s victory over Gomes and co. showcased the Barcelona loanee stamping on the ankle of Aleksandar Mitrović in an ugly challenge.

Referee Lee Probert and his team of officials, at the time, failed to spot the incident.

However, following a review on the part of the FA, Gomes now faces a 3-match ban, which, barring the unlikely case of a successful appeal, will see the 25-year-old miss Everton’s upcoming meetings with Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Burnley.
