PL referee misjudgment’ occurred again…Everton successfully appealed Calvert-Lewin disciplinary action → Cancellation of business trip

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s dismissal was called off. Referee Chris Kavanagh’s decision was a clear misjudgment.

Both teams were aggressive in their attacks. In the third minute of the first half, Jeffrey Schlupp, who caught the ball in the central area, attempted a bold mid-range shot but fell into the arms of the Virginia goalkeeper.

Everton tapped Palace with Arnaut Danjuma at the forefront. In the 17th minute of the first half, Danjuma, who caught the ball in the penalty box, deceived the opponent’s defense and even connected the shot, but shook the side net. In the 20th minute of the first half, Danjuma, who caught the ball once again, even took a powerful left-footed shot after dribbling alone, but was blocked by goalkeeper Sam Johnston. Later, in the 27th minute of the first half, goalkeeper Johnston tried to score several times, including a save from Garner’s corner kick, but the first half ended with a 0-0 balance.

The second half was quieter than the first. In the fifth and sixth minutes of the second half, there were no threatening scenes other than the shots James Garner and Eberich Eze tried, respectively. In the 26th minute of the second half, Palace took out Schlupp and Matheus Franca and deployed Will Hughes and Nowiru Ahamada to break the constant lull.

At the end of the game, an unexpected change occurred for Everton. In the 34th minute of the second half, Calvert-Lewin raised his foot high while defending and made a threatening tackle, and was declared out after VAR. Afterwards, Everton replaced Calvert-Lewin with the exception of Danjuma and Beto, while Palace replaced Jefferson Lerma and Nathaniel Klein with Oddsonne Edouard and David Ojo, but both teams failed to score and the game ended with a 0-0 score.

There was a lot of controversy over the scene of Calvert-Lewin’s exit after the match. This was because there seemed to be no contact on the screen. However, when Calvert-Lewin raised his foot high, Klein screamed and collapsed, and referee Chris Kavanagh immediately ordered Calvert-Lewin to leave after a VAR check.

Fans who were watching the match said they were dumbfounded on social media. According to the U.K.’s The Sun, one fan responded, “There is no physical contact at all. God what is happening,” while another fan reportedly expressed anger, calling it a “disgraceful decision by a terrible referee.”

Consequently, the decision to leave the court was a misjudgment. Everton officially announced on its website on Wednesday that Calvert-Lewin was suspended for three games for his dangerous foul play in the game against Palace, but was overturned through appeal.

“He was scheduled to be suspended for three games, starting against Aston Villa on Sunday, but the club appealed and confirmed the decision to reverse the disciplinary action in a statement from the FA on Tuesday. His claim of wrongful exit has been accepted and Everton will be allowed to play in the next three games,” he added.
