In a recent football match that saw tensions rise to a boiling point, Everton defender Yerry Mina was caught in a controversial incident involving Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke. The Colombian international appeared to ‘bite’ Solanke amidst a heated goalmouth scramble, sparking a mass brawl among the players.

The incident occurred when Solanke attempted to hold Everton’s goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, to the ground. Mina, who was first on the scene, seemed to bite Solanke in a bizarre sequence of events.

Solanke later revealed a red ‘bite mark’ on his chest to the referee, but the official, Stuart Atwell, showed little interest in the incident. Despite the chaos, both Pickford and Solanke were shown a card each, with Mina escaping any punishment.

As of now, Everton is on the brink of surviving relegation, thanks to a stunning goal by Abdoulaye Doucoure. However, the Toffees must hold their ground for a few more minutes to ensure their safety in the Premier League.
