Everton 3-0 Fulham


After a stop-start first half that largely disappointed, the game burst into life in the second half, the catalyst being a missed penalty by Gylfi Sigurdsson, who went on to bag a brace either side of a Tosun marker
Everton were looking to get back to winning ways in their third game in three against opposition from the capital, following reverses against West Ham and Arsenal.

Everton v Fulham


Six games have passed in the Premier League, and it is safe to say Marco Silva’s Everton are in a slump. A wrong they must put right against newly promoted Fulham.
The Blues are winless in the league since the 2-1 victory over Southampton at Goodison in the second game of the campaign, with two disappointing draws and two losses since.

Rome wasn’t built in a day…


Patience is key if Marco Silva is to succeed at Everton. And after a run on managers it’s a game the club’s bosses will want to play.

Despite an inspiring 55 minutes for Everton at the Emirates, Arsenal ran away with all three points thanks to quick-fire strikes from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Blues dominated the hosts in large portions of the first half but it appeared that the away side left their shooting boots back on Merseyside.

Post West Ham Reflections


Sometimes there is a game and a performance that is best forgotten. For Silva and the Everton players I would suggest they will try to omit the game from their memory and not dwell on it too far. While the following will frustrate many fans, for the most part it is a game that is atypical of our season to date.

Silva bemoans lack of finishing


Marco Silva reckons Everton had to score more from the chances they created in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham.
Silva said: “We didn’t perform on a level to win this match, it is clear and I have told our players as well, at this level you cannot make the mistakes we made.
“When you create chances like we did you have to score.

Andy Gray Slams Cenk Tosun as “Not good enough”


Everton legend Andy Gray his reaffirmed his belief that Cenk Tosun isn’t good enough for Everton.
Speaking following Everton’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham at Goodison Park, Andy Gray spoke of the number of players missing from Marco Silva’s squad, but
Gray: “What Marco Silva needs is to have every player he’s got, available.
“Andre Gomes, we’ve not seen. Bernard, we’ve only seen a glimpse of him today. Yerry Mina, not seen him. Richarlison has been suspended for three games.

So far, so good


Usually the first international break of the season would be greeted with disdain and annoyance, we suffer a long arduous summer then squeeze in just four Premier League games, plus a Carabao Cup tie, before we pause but maybe this time the feeling is different.
Although the season is a mere five games old, it seems to have taken its toll on the squad. The excitement of a mouthwatering transfer deadline day has now simmered somewhat, largely owing to a crippling and growing injury list.

Rationality and supporting a football club rarely go hand in hand. In fact, there are few things in life that make us so inured to objective thinking as being a fan. We catastrophize, and then in a blink of an eye are prone to insane levels of optimism. We castigate players for the most minor of mistakes and then lionise them for doing something right.
