Another home game, another defeat. I genuinely believed we had turned a corner but all the good work is undone with this abysmal result. Three 3-0’s in a row followed up by a 0-1 defeat to West Brom, classic Everton.

The day began with great optimism due to the fact that fit-again Howard had been dropped, yet just minutes into the game that optimism had been dashed with Everton conceding from another set piece. No one picked up Olsonn, Joel lost the flight of the ball and Rondon was on hand at the back post to make it 1-0 to the visitors. Shambles.

34 shots, 11 corners, 76% possession, 0 points. Standard.

Here are 5 things we learned from the game.
