Everton conceded two goals in quick succession and also had two of their own players sent off

However, the Toffees were reduced to ten men when Jarrad Branthwaite was sent off for taking Ivan Toney down.

Brentford quickly fought back as Yoane Wissa’s curling shot deflected Seamus Coleman, however, Everton restored their lead through Richarlison’s penalty just before half-time.

But within three minutes of the second half, Everton’s lead turned into a deficit with Wissa and Rico Henry for the Bees. The match also saw Salomon Rondon being sent off just three minutes after coming on.
