Yerry Mina has lived up to his reputation as a master of football's dark arts by managing to get Kai Havertz booked late on in Everton's 1-0 win over Chelsea.

The Toffees ground out a crucial victory at Goodison Park on Sunday thanks to Richarlison's second-half winner and an inspired performance from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Mina made only his second start for Everton since the beginning of February and the Colombia international was in the thick of the action throughout the game.

In the closing stages of the match, Mina clashed with Havertz after the Chelsea forward challenged Pickford for the ball inside Everton's area.

Mina, unhappy with Havertz's attempt to win the ball, squared up to the Germany international and attempted to make him flinch.

Havertz then reacted by pushing Mina, who theatrically fell to the floor.

Referee Kevin Friend booked Havertz for his role in the incident, while Mina went unpunished.

Footage of the incident has gone viral on Twitter, with Everton fans seeing the funny side of Mina's antics.

"Done him like a kipper," wrote one fan.

Another added: "He takes snide to a whole new level and I f**king love him for it."

Everton remain 18th in the Premier League despite their victory but are now back to within two points of the two teams directly above them in the table - Leeds United and Burnley.

Frank Lampard's side next face Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
