How long is Ashley Young banned for? Everton man sent off in Merseyside derby against Liverpool

Ashley Young was sent off against Liverpool in Saturday’s Merseyside derby and faces a spell on the sidelines.

The Everton defender got his marching orders in the first half at Anfield.

Young has been a crucial player since moving to Goodison Park this summer, but Sean Dyche will be without him as a result of his early bath.

How long will Young be suspended for?

Young received two yellow cards from referee Craig Pawson, so will serve a one-match ban.

The first yellow came in the 18th minute as he clipped Luis Diaz, who was racing past him.

That booking made him an easy target for the rapid Colombian.

The second yellow card followed in the 32nd minute.

Diaz isolated him on the left and drove to the byline, where Young brought him down.

Pawson reached for his pocket and sent him off, meaning he can’t play any part in Everton’s next Premier League match against West Ham.

Speaking after the game about the red card, Dyche said: “The problem is how do you judge that?

“Their player [Ibrahima Konate] does not get booked for a similar foul and Young was booked twice for the same thing.

“I was given a yellow card for asking a question on it.”

Overall, it could have been worse for Everton and Young, who only has to miss one match.
