Everton

Toffees ace told to cool it

30th December 2018, 01:36 by Michael Holland

Marco Silva has urged Lucas Digne "to clear his mind" after his angry reaction to Everton's 1-0 defeat at Brighton.

Full-back Digne had to be pulled away by team-mates Jordan Pickford and Seamus Coleman following the final whistle at the Amex Stadium.

The Frenchman appeared to be unhappy with referee Andrew Madley, while also venting frustration at some of Brighton's players.

Silva, who was also critical of the officials, said: "He's upset, not just him. First because we didn't win the match and it was our goal (objective).

"And he was upset with the referee in some moments of the match as well, but it's part of the game. Now I want him to clear his mind and to prepare (for) the next match.

"It was a frustrating afternoon for us. I think we created more than our opponent. Even if it wasn't our best performance, we created enough to achieve a different result."

Seagulls striker Jurgen Locadia decided the contest on the south coast, swivelling to turn home in the 59th minute following a Pascal Gross corner.
