Carlo Ancelotti sent off after blasting ref for disallowing Calvert-Lewin goal

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti was sent off after the final whistle at Goodison Park for launching a verbal tirade at referee Chris Kavanagh for disallowing a late goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The forward looked to have given the Toffees a dramatic winner in the 93rd minute with the scoreline at 1-1 when his effort deflected in off Harry Maguire.

It would have been Calvert-Lewin’s second of the game but the celebrations were cut short when a VAR review disallowed the goal for offside.

Gylfi Sigurdsson was in an offside position as the shot went in but the Icelandic international pulled his feet away from the shot in order for it to go in and did not technically touch the ball, while his position did not impact David De Gea who was already beaten by the ricochet.

However, the former Tottenham playmaker was deemed to have interfered with play and the full-time whistle was met with a chorus of boos from the Goodison faithful moments later.

Do YOU think it was offside? ?

But nobody was as angry as Ancelotti and the Italian was seen gesturing at the officials near the centre circle as they tried to make their way off the field.

The former Real Madrid boss would not let his argument rest and was consequently sent off for his tirade.

Ancelotti will now serve a touchline ban and will miss matches against Chelsea, Liverpool and Norwich.
