Following the Tigers’ 4-0 defeat at Everton on Saturday, Head Coach Marco Silva gave the following reaction when speaking to the media:
“It’s disappointing. I saw one game for 70 minutes, and after I saw another game (following the sending off of Tom Huddlestone with the score at 1-0).
“We didn’t deserve that decision and we didn’t deserve what happened after it. Up to that point we were competing and we played as a team. We had some problems in the first half, but we caused problems for Everton as well.
“Everton scored in the first half and we had a very good chance to score as well. We started the second half very well and had 25 good minutes with the quality to push Everton back. We made a change to our system but then after we had done that one decision, which I didn’t understand, changed the game (the red card). Our team, our players and Tom didn’t deserve this.
“We lose a player for three games because of this and I don’t know why. It’s not a situation I want to talk about too much in this moment.
“We played against a very good team on Saturday who have been doing very well recently and I’m not sure there have been many teams that have caused them the problems we did for 70 minutes.
“We went there to compete and for 70 minutes this is true and we came close to a result. After that, the game changed.”
