<p>Following his dismissal for a challenge on Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne during last Thursday’s 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park, Calvert-Lewin was facing a three-game suspension.</p>
<p>Before VAR stepped in, the striker had attacked Nathaniel Clyne outside the area. Although it seemed like a studs-up tackle, the Everton player got the ball and there was no foul called.</p>
<p>After seeing the footage, referee Chris Kavanagh issued the red card, bringing Everton down to 10 men in the 79th minute.</p>
<p>After the match, Everton manager Sean Dyche said that although he remained a supporter of VAR, he was starting to lose patience with it.</p>
<p>The next day, Everton said that they would appeal the ruling, and their challenge had been successful.</p>
<p>A statement from the Football Association said, “Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be available for Everton’s next three games following a successful claim of wrongful dismissal.”</p>
<p>“On Thursday, January 4, 2024, during the Emirates FA Cup match against Crystal Palace, the striker was sent off for serious foul play.”</p>
<p>Following the incident, Sean Dyche, the manager of Everton, said that although he was still “a fan” of VAR, it was “beginning to test my patience.”</p>
<p>“I don’t know why the monitor is there,” he said.</p>
<p>“What’s the purpose, every fan must be asking themselves. We are all aware of the result—they will accept whatever is said to them.</p>
<p>The striker is now eligible for the Toffees’ Premier League games against Aston Villa on January 14 and Fulham on January 30, as well as the FA Cup third-round replay versus Palace on January 17, after the appeal was granted. He will not serve a punishment as a result.</p>
