- Well, that brief moment of hope after the Chelsea game was nice while it lasted. Back to reality.
- It was never going to be easy for David Unsworth, and the next two games against Lyon and Watford are his last chances to show if he is capable enough of managing the first team full-time or back to the under-23s.
- Everton couldn’t handle Leicester’s pace, especially for the first goal as Demarai Gray bolted his way through the midfield, passed to Mahrez and he gave the ball to Vardy who wasn’t going to miss.
- Leicester’s second was bad fortune – Jonjoe Kenny’s miskicked Demarai Gray’s shot and the Premier League kindly didn’t class it as an own goal.
- Up to and including that goal, Leicester had 7 shots whereas Everton had none. However, from that goal to the end of the match, Everton had 16 shots whereas Leicester only had 2.
- Everton also had 11 more touches in Leicester’s penalty area than Leicester had in theirs.
- But like in so, so, so many games this season, Everton’s poor finishing has cost them.
- Wayne Rooney created 4 chances – more than any other player.
- Tom Davies made 5 successful tackles – more than any other player.
- Phil Jagielka made 8 accurate long balls – more than any other outfield player.
