Everton manager Marco Silva has been fined £12,000 after accepting an improper conduct charge for his behaviour after the defeat to Newcastle earlier this month.

The Portuguese was furious the hosts' winning goal in their 3-2 victory was allowed to stand as Salomon Rondon was in an offside position in the build-up.

Silva confronted referee Lee Mason on the pitch at the final whistle, which led to his Football Association charge and subsequent fine.
