Marco Silva charged by FA over Newcastle confrontation

Marco Silva charged by FA over Newcastle confrontation

Silva confronted referee Lee Mason and his assistants on the pitch after his side let slip a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at Newcastle on Saturday. This was a match comprised of several chances and controversial incidents, but in the end the better team won.

Ayoze Perez was in an initially offside position as the ball was lofted into the Everton box, but was walking back away from goal with his hands in the air, only to turn when the ball went over his head.

Everton were ahead at the interval through goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, but capitulated after strikes from Salomon Rondon and a Perez double secured Newcastle's fifth straight win at home.

Perez scored twice and also provided an assist for Salomon Rondon, as Newcastle ending up winning 3-2.

"Normally I say to the players stay calm at half-time, score one goal and get back into the game", Benitez said.

"We have to get that number that makes you be safe 100 per cent, so two more wins and you forget about the relegation battle and that's it".

Calvert-Lewin told the club's official website, www.evertonfc.com: "We were in control, but stopped doing the things which earned us that two-goal cushion".

They sit six points clear of the bottom three with eight games remaining and while Perez insists they can not yet start to look upwards rather than over their shoulder, he knows how close they are.

However, Silva was convinced Perez's victor should have been chalked off, claiming the officials had failed to spot five Magpies players in offside positions.
