No-one could quite believe there were NINE yellow cards during Everton v Crystal Palace

It seems yellow was the colour of the day. And we aren’t talking about the canary yellow shirts of Alan Pardew’s men.

Referee Jon Moss dished out nine yellow cards during Friday night’s Everton v Crystal Palace Premier League match at Goodison Park.

That makes it the most yellow cards seen in a Premier League match this season and no-one can quite believe it:

Meanwhile, Palace fans were left questioning the call from Moss after his assistant’s flag went up when Damien Delaney converted a second-half header and, following a discussion between the two officials, it was decided the effort should not stand.

Also, Yannick Bolasie faced Palace for the first time since his move to Everton and the fact wasn’t lost among the fans:

Palace’s winning streak, however, came to an end with a 1-1 draw.

Everton move up from fifth to third in the table, while Palace stay seventh.
