Drama ensued when Everton won a penalty against Brighton, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison fighting over the spot-kick.
A flashpoint between Everton's main forwards slightly marred their 2-0 away win at Brighton on Saturday.
The Toffees won a penalty in the second-half with Richarlison immediately grabbing the ball and standing over the spot.
Club captain Seamus Coleman jogged over to his teammate and had a word with him before ushering him away from the penalty.
An angry Richarlison was eventually moved away by Coleman as well as Andros Townsend and Allan.
Calvert-Lewin, who converted a penalty in his side's draw against Leeds United last weekend, made no mistake from 12-yards as he hit the back of the net.
Even in their celebration, the Brazilian still looked furious for being overlooked for the penalty.

The incident between Richarlison and Calvert-Lewis got fans talking online.
One Twitter user commented: "What was Richarlison playing at, obviously Calvert Lewin is the pen taker after scoring last week.. All that done was put more pressure on the pen."
A second wrote: "Richarlison trying to take the pen away from Calvert Lewin and Seamus was havin absolutely none of it. Brilliant captaincy."
A third added: "Pathetic from Richarlison. Good to see the reaction from the rest of the team, though. Coleman has obviously learnt from the Mirallas/Baines incident."
What really isn't great about Richarlison's attitude around the penalty is that his team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the recently designated penalty taker. Grabbing the ball just adds unnecessary pressure for his team-mate. Great composure and focus by the number nine.- Ell Bretland (@EllBretland) August 28, 2021
Just tuned into some premier league football, and saw Richarlison fight with his teammate Calvert-Lewin to take a penalty for Everton :no_mouth::no_mouth::no_mouth::no_mouth:- K.Shah (@kshitijshah23) August 28, 2021
Surreal: Everton win penalty. Richarlison grabs ball, refuses to hand it to designated penalty taker Calvert Lewin. Everton players have to beg him to give it up. Iced by own player, DCL still converts. Richarlison celebrates angrily like Itchy & Scratchy combined in human form pic.twitter.com/0VmCep3s5c- roger bennett (@rogbennett) August 28, 2021
Rafael Benitez's side move to second in the league following their victory at the AMEX Stadium.
