WATCH: Richarlison gets sent off for Everton at Bournemouth

New, comment

Petulant little flick of the head, but well-acted from Adam Smith.

AFC Bournemouth defender Adam Smith turned into famous actor Adam West late in the first half for the acting job he pulled to get Richarlison sent off. Everton held on to go to the break still tied 0-0 despite controlling most of the game previous to that.

Make no mistake, this is not a defence of the Brazilian winger who was certainly petulant with how he flicked his head at the fullback after they had gone head-to-head, but there was barely any contact and the Englishman took a good few seconds to make sure the referee Lee Probert was watching before reacting.
