Mr Silva lives to see another week. Given the alternatives that were paraded about on Twitter over the weekend, many will obviously be very happy about that. We weren’t good today however, far from it in fact.

Although we dominated the first half, that was more so because Southampton looked like a League One team at best, in what was a genuinely harrowing performance from their side at their own place, managing not one shot on target for the entirety of the first half.

Tom Davies ran rings around the Saints’ midfield whenever they decided to venture out of their own 18-yard box, which was extremely rare, and any Southampton pressure resulted in quick passing and a swift counter from Everton.

And, again, as much as that sounds impressive from Mr Silva’s side, we won in spite of his team selection and tactics, not because of. Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate looked excellent at the back, and Theo Walcott once again was the spark going forward.

We need to be better, and quickly.
