Everton manager Marco Silva has been fined £12,000 by the Football Association for confronting match officials following Everton's 3-2 defeat at Newcastle on March 9.
Silva accepted an improper conduct charge at an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Tuesday.
Everton had led 2-0 at half-time before Newcastle staged a remarkable second-half comeback,with Silva claiming five players had been in offside positions in the build-up to Ayoze Perez's winning goal.
In his post-match interview, Silva told Sky Sports: "When they scored the third goal it was a big mistake by the assistant, nothing more to say.
"It was a clear offside. If you see the image it's not just one player or two players in offside positions, there were five Newcastle players in the same line in offside positions.
"It was a clear offside, five players in offside positions."
