Several Everton Players Had To Beg Richarlison To Give Up Penalty After Grabbing Ball

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."

Rafael Benitez's side move to second in the league following their victory at the AMEX Stadium.
