- 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.
- Dominic Calvert-Lewin won 13 aerial duels – more than any other player.
- Ashley Williams made 13 clearances – more than any other player.
- Idrissa Gueye’s pass accuracy was 86.4% – higher than any other player who made a minimum of 20 passes.
