Norwich boss Daniel Farke claims Everton plunged into post-match rant
Norwich City manager Daniel Farke accused Allan of diving to win a penalty which he said should not have been awarded, while insisting Everton should have been reduced to 10 men in the of their 2-0 victory against his team.
Goals from Andros Townsend and Abdoulaye Doucoure on either side of the break saw the Blues win their first three Premier League matches at Goodison Park for the first time since 1989, but doomed the Canaries to a record 16 . e consecutive defeat in the Premier League under the same boss.
Referee David Coote initially shook his head when Allan fell from a challenge from Ozan Kabak, but after an initial VAR review and then a consultation with one of his assistants, the referee indicated the spot.

Farke complained, âIt was definitely the wrong decision to turn this around.
“Before the start of the season it was said ‘once a player tries to use a situation, for example a right leg, to create a penalty, or when he has no chance of creating a chance. , this penalty is never given. ‘
âThis is exactly such a situation. It wasn’t even a chance.
“Allan put the ball more or less for a goal kick for us, realizing the ball was too far and then used Ozan Kabak’s leg, which was a bit too high in the air, to dive through. over that leg, and go down. “
He added: “The referee made the right decision, he felt it, and just scored a goal kick, he had a perfect position.
“He correctly pointed a goal kick and I was disappointed that VAR knocked him down and the referee reconsidered the situation.
* How would you rate each Everton player today? Give us your notes:
“Of course, if you watch a game on a screen, in slow motion, not at normal speed, and then you also have the pressure of the whole stadium wanting a penalty, then it’s not an easy situation for the referee and I’m disappointed he knocked it over.
âMy initial thought was ‘it’s not even a chance’ but he’s an experienced player (Allan) and maybe you need to do that in order to use those moments for your team.
“But as a referee you have to judge him the right way and on the pitch I think he judged him well and overturning was definitely the wrong decision.”
Farke also believes Everton captain Lucas Digne should have been sent off.
The France international – who had previously been warned for removing Max Aarons – was penalized for a handball between the hosts’ two goals, but Coote took no further action.
Farke said: “For me there was a key moment where there was no yellow or red card for Lucas Digne in the second half.
âWe were continuing the game, and I think it was definitely handball.
“He also avoided a really dangerous cross for us and I think that should be a yellow or a red card.
“If you then go on to a game and you’re overloaded with one man and you have 20 to 25 minutes left, that would have changed the outcome.”
