Everton fans react to Andre Gomes’ three-match suspension for violent conduct

Andre Gomes has been suspended for three matches but some Everton fans are calling for greater consistency from officials.

Andre Gomes will be suspended for Everton’s next three matches, according to the BBC.

Portuguese international midfielder Gomes was retrospectively punished for stamping on Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic during the Toffees’ 2-0 loss at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

The incident was apparently missed on the pitch at the time by referee Lee Probert but picked up on after the game, meaning that Gomes will miss matches against Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Burnley.

And while it was the correct decision, some Everton fans on Twitter feel that the decision reflects the inconsistency among officials in the Premier League and the punishments handed down.

They feel that the sides higher up the Premier League appear to get the breaks on that score, and are upset that Gomes will only get the chance to play one more match of his loan spell, the final game of the campaign against Tottenham.

We’ve put together the best of the angry reaction to the announcement as these Toffee fans must hope that Gomes’ loan deal is extended or made permanent. Otherwise he’s made his final Blues appearance at Goodison Park…
