Everton boss Sean Dyche criticises Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for Abdoulaye Doucoure incident

Sean Dyche, the manager of Everton, has criticised Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for going down after his clash with Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Spurs’ talisman and the Goodison Park side’s midfielder were involved in an unsavoury incident at around the hour mark. The Mali international put his hands on the England international’s face when the Toffees welcomed the North London side in the Premier League.

Kane went down and Doucoure was sent off as a result. However, the whole set of events set a bad taste in Dyche’s mouth. Speaking to the media via the Evening Standard, the Toffees’ boss took a jibe at the England skipper.

“It was a big drama over nothing, although I was worried when they concussion-tested him though. I thought ‘Wow, this could be a close one’.

“Harry Kane is a great pro but some of it leaves you scratching your head.”

Everton started the game on the front foot. However, Tottenham slowly got back into the game. Both teams had their fair share of opportunities in the first half.

Dyche’s team continued to play well after the break. However, Doucoure’s red card changed the game for them. Then, at around the 70th-minute mark, Cristian Romero won a penalty for the North London side.

Kane found the back of the net from the spot and gave us the lead. It marked the 29-year-old’s 24th goal of the season for the Lilywhites in all competitions. The England international has been our only reliable forward in the current campaign.

Unfortunately, Michael Keane, who gave away the spot kick, redeemed himself in the 90th minute with a brilliant long-range effort and snatched a point for the Goodison Park side.

It seems like Dyche has not seen the incident between Kane and Doucoure clearly. The midfielder had his fingers in the striker’s eyes. The red card for the Malian was valid. The 29-year-old’s reaction was valid and the former Burnley coach is just sticking up for his team.
