Overview

  • 2 wins and 2 clean sheets. Feels weird.
  • The 4-1 defeat to Southampton and 5-1 defeat to Atalanta seem like a lifetime ago as Sam Allardyce got off to the perfect start.
  • Well, the perfect start winning-wise, not so much performance-wise due to a dreary first half as both teams mustered only 2 shots each.
  • The second half was nowhere near as dreary thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
  • Hardly a game that would be first on Match of the Day but a win and a clean sheet nonetheless.
  • That win also saw Everton rise to the dizzy heights of 10th place – only 4 points behind 8th and 7 behind 6th.
  • Up next is a dead rubber game against Apollon Limassol in sunny Cyprus.
