Everton boss Marco Silva was left fuming as his side slipped to a controversial defeat at Newcastle on Saturday. The Toffees led 2-0 at the break through goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison and after England keeper Jordan Pickford had conceded, then saved, a Matt Ritchie penalty amid appeals for his dismissal for a foul on Salomon Rondon.
However, they capitulated after it as Rondon and a late quick-fire double from Ayoze Perez snatched three priceless points for the home side and left Silva fuming. Silva was convinced Perez’s winner should have been chalked off, claiming the officials had failed to spot five Magpies players in offside positions.
He said: “When they scored the third goal it was a big mistake by the assistant, nothing more to say. It was a clear offside. “If you see the image it’s not just one player or two players in offside positions, there were five Newcastle players in the same line in offside positions.
It was a clear offside, five players in offside positions. “If 2-2 for us at that moment was a big frustration, imagine when they scored the third goal in a clear offside position?”
