Everton earned a well deserved point against Spurs on Monday night, but it was the topic of some over-the-top play acting from Harry Kane which stole the headlines.

Abdoulaye Doucoure was given his marching orders just before the hour mark after striking the England skipper in the face following an off the ball scuffle.

The Mali international was rightly shown a straight red card for raising his arms, but it was Kane's reaction to the incident which has left many people with differing opinions.

However, some criticised the England captain for the manner in which he went down after the contact.


Sean Dyche rips into Harry Kane over Everton antics

One man who never shies away from giving his honest reaction to topics is Sean Dyche. He was unhappy with Harry Kane's dramatics at the time and addressed them once again this afternoon.


The straight-talking Everton manager mocked Kane during his press conference, joking that he thought he might have broken an eyelash:

He certainly doesn’t need to apologise. He knows you can’t raise your hands.

I thought at one point he might have snapped his (Kane’s) eyelash, which would have been tragic, but he seemed to be responding okay.

He (Doucoure) is a very strong-minded character and I like that. When it goes wrong, he won’t be judged on that by me.

Speaking in his post match interview on Monday night, Dyche also questioned Kane for his role in the incident.


And the sending off, all I will say is that you can't raise your hands. It's as simple as that. I couldn't understand why Harry went for the challenge because the referee had blown the whistle for (the foul on) Dimi Gray.

Doucoure has been in good form in recent weeks, but with a clash against Manchester United this weekend and the midfielder beginning his three-match ban, the Toffees will be looking for someone else to fill in.

Speaking about Everton's midfield options ahead of the trip to Old Trafford on Saturday, Sean Dyche said:


We don’t know if he will be a miss or not,

It’s a great opportunity for someone else to play.

There are a lot of good players here and I believe in them all. Openings do come around so it is who steps in and can take it.

Harry Kane has been slated in the past for his somewhat "master of dark arts" traits that he possesses,  and this will undoubtedly be the last time we see Kane in the line of fire for his antics on the pitch.
