Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

Gomes appeared to stamp on Fulham hitman Aleksandar Mitrovic during Everton's 2-0 defeat at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Referee Lee Probert missed the incident and the FA have charged the Toffees star, who is on loan from Spanish giants Barcelona.

If guilty, the Portugal international is likely to receive a retrospective ban.

 

And the news hasn't gone down well with Toffees legend Michael Ball.

It's been a brilliant season overall for the former Valencia star and it'll be a shame for him if he sits out the rest of the campaign through suspension.

Marco Silva's side only have four Premier League games to go but if Gomes is guilty of violent conduct, a three-match suspension might await him.

The Goodison Park club are ninth in the Premier League table.
