Everton's Jack Rodwell thinks that he did "nothing wrong" to deserve the red card against Liverpool earlier this month.

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell has said that he will not "change" how he tackles despite being sent off for a challenge on Luis Suarez in the Merseyside derby earlier this month.

The 20-year-old had his red card overturned by the FA, which allowed him to play in the club's 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last weekend.

"The sending off was a hard pill to swallow," he told BBC Radio Merseyside. "But I've bounced back from that now it's been rescinded.

"Looking over the tackle again, I feel I've done nothing wrong. It's a strong tackle at best. But that's what going to happens in a derby.

"If the tackle was to be made again I'm sure I would do exactly the same. You can look back at things like that and it can change your perspective but it was a mistake and I'm sure it won't change my perception of how to tackle."

Meanwhile, the Toffees travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham this Sunday.
