Overview

  • The worst possible start followed by a confidence-boosting middle followed by a terrible end. Definitely goes in the “Everton’s most Everton performances” folder (the fifth or sixth one, I lost count).
  • Ashley Williams’ made a(nother) horrendous error that led to a(nother) goal.
  • Apollon Limassol thankfully had an Ashley Wiliams themselves and gave the ball to Wayne Rooney to equalise.
  • Nikola Vlasic – one of the very few praiseworthy players in the past few weeks – momentarily gave Everton hope before Hector Yuste scored his first goal of the season to grab a late point.
  • Everton should have earned 3 points but came away with their Europa League hopes hanging by a thread and Ronald Koeman is on thin ice.
