Everton supporters are furious with Leicester City defender Jonny Evans for his foul on forward Richarlison.
During the first-half at Goodison Park, the Foxes appear to be fortunate not to have been reduced to ten-men following Evans’ tackle.
Although, referee Martin Atkinson failed to even award a foul for the challenge on the Brazilian.
Evans’ tough tackle on Richarlison

The North Irish defender crunched into Richarlison with his studs showing and leaving the 21-year-old requiring treatment.
Fortunately for Richarlison, he was able to continue the game, whilst Evans appeared fortunate to remain on the pitch.
The former Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion defender finished the remainder of the half also playing like a man who knew he was guilty.
Therefore, the fact that neither a yellow card or even a foul was awarded by the referee makes the incident even more shocking.
Everton fans furious with Evans for foul on Richarlison
Struggling to break Leicester down. Not sure how Evans got away with that follow through on Richarlison though. #EFC

Nasty follow-through on Richarlison. Not really sure how Evans has got away with that one…
