Watch: Richarlison Sees Red For ‘Headbutt’ Clash With Adam Smith

Everton have been dealt a blow in their Premier League clash with Bournemouth after star midfielder Richarlison was sent off for an off the ball altercation with Adam Smith. 

Richarlison saw red just minutes before halftime at the Vitality Stadium and it looks like it will be a great opportunity for The Cherries to claim a valuable three points.

The Brazilian has been in fine form for the Toffees with three goals already to his name in this season’s Premier League but based on the incident which saw him receive his marching orders, he may have to wait some time until he can add to that tally.

Richarlison and Smith squared up to each other in the penalty area as both players went head to head, literally. A slight nudge from the Brazilian was all it took for the referee to issue the red card.

What do you make of the incident?
