Marco Silva has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association (FA) after confronting the match officials following Everton’s 3-2 loss at Newcastle United on Saturday.

Toffees boss Silva approached referee Lee Mason and his assistants on the pitch at St James’ Park after watching the visitors throw away a two-goal lead.

The Portuguese was furious with the decision to let Ayoze Perez’s late winner stand amid suspicions of offside.

Silva also claimed Gylfi Sigurdsson should have been awarded a penalty during the defeat, Everton’s fourth loss in six matches.

An FA statement read: “Marco Silva has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3 following the Premier League game against Newcastle United on Saturday].

“It is alleged the Everton manager’s behaviour on the field of play at the end of the fixture amounts to improper conduct. He has until 18:00 [GMT] on Thursday [14 March 2019] to respond to the charge.”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino received a two-match touchline ban following a similarly heated on-pitch exchange with referee Mike Dean in February.
