Marco Silva in trouble: Mauricio Pochettino precedent forecasts Chelsea & West Ham bans

Everton lost at Newcastle

Everton manager Marco Silva wasn’t a happy man after Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Newcastle.

At halftime at St James’ Park, Everton were 2-up over the Magpies.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened for the Toffees, before Richarlison doubled Everton’s lead.

In between those goals, Jordan Pickford saved a Matt Ritchie penalty.

Yet Ayoze Perez stole the headlines with two late goals as Newcastle staged a remarkable second half comeback.

Salomon Rondon put the Toon on the board at the start of the second half.

Marco Silva in trouble

When the full-time whistle blew, Marco Silva confronted referee Lee Mason.

Silva was furious with a few decisions in the game.

In particular, Newcastle’s winner should never have stood as five Newcastle players were offside in the build-up.

On Monday night, the FA confirmed that Silva has been charged.

Everton’s manager is accused of improper conduct. Silva has until 6pm on Thursday to respond.

Mauricio Pochettino precedent: Chelsea & West Ham bans

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is currently halfway through a two-game touchline ban.

Pochettino was punished by the FA for getting in referee Mike Dean’s face after Spurs recently lost at Burnley.

The Pochettino and Silva incidents appear to be remarkably similar.

Accordingly, it’s assumed the FA will follow their Pochettino precedent so that Everton’s manager will be also be hit with a two-game touchline ban.

Everton’s next two matches are against Chelsea and West Ham.

Chelsea are hoping to finish the year in the top four, while West Ham are two points better off than Everton in the standings.
