It's been a very poor half of football from us. I would have expected our players to be ready for this kind of press, pressure and energy from Everton.

We have practically created nothing meaningful which is of concern. Most players have been below par so far. Tomori should gave started over AC for me. AC and Zouma is not a combination that works.

Bring on Jorginho and let's see if we can start creating chances. We need some creativity.

Something needs to happen because at the moment we are heading for another defeat, it will be our 3rd defeat in 4 games which is slightly concerning.

'Bring on Jorginho and start creating chances'?! Are you havin' a laugh!? How many chances has Jorginho created in the last 2 seasons? Answer: 1!

I wonder who you will blame now given that Jorginho didn't play at all? This is where your strength lies I suppose but it has been made more difficult today Or will you blame Jorginho for sitting on the bench?

We had plenty of chances/ half chances but didn't take them. Kovacic and Kante gave us dominance in possession, Pulicic, Mount and Abrahams often threatening, but defensive errors and lack of ruthlessness in final third plus Everton new manager (or new temp manager) boost did for us.

{Ed0666's Note - And the fact you’re keeper thinks he’s a ball playing center half

Anyway, my views are that it was a very poor performance, it was very lethargic from the kick off.

It was always going to be a risk especially when you start the same 11 that played against Villa midweek. These players have had 2.5 days worth of rest since than and clearly the tiredness and lack of energy was on show because Everton beat us to most 1st and 2nd balls in most aspects. We lost most 50/ 50 situations which was so frustrating to see. Did our players not expect an Everton resurgence today?, the performance would suggest they expected a light contest.

Jorginho/ Kovacic pivot was brilliant and results that went in our favour is evidence for it. It is a shame if Jorginho is tired.

AC and Zouma are a very suspect combination. Lamps surely has to realise that by now. It was a comedy errors at one point. I mean how poor were the 2nd and 3rd everton goals - shocked.

Kepa will take slack for the pass but the defending afterwards is what worries me the most.

Kepa last two games have been very good and I think Kepa is generally very good with ball at his feet.

Today he has made a mistake but I also think Zouma was asleep.

Anyway, it’s all about opinions!

Spot on Darren wood.

70% possession but we didn't create any clear cut chances today.

Try telling Tom that Ed he’s deluded but as they say all about opinions ☺️.

07 Dec 2019 16:18:44
I have NOT said that Ed is deluded or anything like Kepa had a good game. I just think your statements about the players are weird.

07 Dec 2019 22:17:32
I don't think Jorginho would have dealt well with the high/ aggressive press of Everton today, wouldn't have been the right game for him.

But don't write him off.

Someone has to pick a pass to create for the the creater - that's where Jorginho excels, that's why we're, at times, slow without him.

Good point J.
