Football fans reckon Yerry Mina tried to take a bite out of Dominic Solanke as tempers boiled over during Everton's win-or-bust clash with Bournemouth.
With Everton chasing victory to perverse their Premier League status, there was a melee in the home goalmouth. Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was in the thick of things as players from both sides piled in. Mina and Solanke squared up to each, with some supporters convinced the Everton defender tried to bite the Bournemouth forward.
“Yerry Mina biting Solanke. Commentators think it's funny and VAR does nowt. OK,” said one.

Another viewer added: “Neville just called Yerry Mina emotional for biting Solanke? Emotional?”
A third added: “Sky Sports has just shown Yerry Mina bite Dominic Solanke and VAR hasn’t done anything. That is simply outrageous and mind-boggling.”
A fourth said: “Weston McKennie getting called a “fat b******” by Leeds fans and Yerry Mina taking a massive bite out of Dominic Solanke. Just an average relegation fight.”

Abdoulaye Doucoure scored the only goal of the game with a rasping effort early in the second half. With Leicester beating West Ham 2-1, Everton knew they needed to win to avoid dropping into the Championship, and after a nerve-shredding 10 minutes of added time, Toffees fans were finally put out of their misery.
The match was Mina's last for the club after the Colombia international confirmed he will leave the club this summer. In a video message posted on the eve of the Bournemouth game, he said: "Hello Toffees, I hope you are good. I have a message and invitation for you. This Sunday I will play my last game for Everton Football Club.
"It's time to say goodbye after five years together. I want to say thank you, for your support and love. It has been a privilege and honour to wear this shirt and represent you.
"For this reason, I invite you all to attend this 'Last Dance' at Goodison Park, this last battle that we have to fight. We need your help and your fight. Because together we are going to stay in the Premier League, where this great club should always be.
"It will be a special moment, full of emotion and memories. I am sure that we will make it. Come on boys. Last push. Come on boys. We are together. Yes Toffees!"
