Everton ace out for three

17th April 2019, 06:44 by Michael Holland

Andre Gomes is to miss Everton's next three matches after accepting a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

Gomes was charged after an incident during the 2-0 defeat to Fulham on Saturday when he appeared to stamp on home forward Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The incident was missed by the referee at the time, and he escaped a red card, however, he has now been hit with retrospective action and will serve a ban.

A statement on the FA website read: "Andre Gomes will miss Everton's next three matches after accepting a charge of violent conduct.

"This followed an incident that was not seen by the match officials but caught on video during the 95th minute of the Premier League fixture against Fulham on Saturday [13/04/2019]."

Gomes will miss games against Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Burnley, but he will be eligible to return against Tottenham on the final day of the Premier League season.

That could be his final game in a blue shirt unless the Toffees pursue a permanent deal for the Barcelona ace.
