Everton boss Marco Silva has urged Brazilian forward Richarlison not to be so quick to go to ground. The forward has earned censure for perceived histrionics.

The Toffees boss says he has spoken with the player about standing up as much as possible, but suggested that he thinks the player gets a raw deal from referees.

“Richarlison has a strong mentality, he is a worker, no doubts about that,” said Silva. “That’s part of his talent… and part of his talent is that feeling and smell of the goal around the box.

“We are working with him because the Premier League is really tough and the message and the feedback to him is to always to stand as much as he can.

“Don’t fall down… even if it looks in many, many moments that the decisions are not fair with him.”
