Everton: Supporters will be furious as shocking statistic emerges

Image for Everton: Supporters will be furious as shocking statistic emerges

Everton supporters will be shocked and angered to see this alarming statistic has emerged from the Merseyside derby.

Evertonians can perhaps take some solace from the Merseyside derby defeat as they kept one of the best sides in Europe frustrated for large portions of the game and restricted them to zero first-half shots on target at home, something only Manchester City have done all season.

Should Allan be dropped by Lampard?





However, with the alarming Burnley win just prior to their kick-off at Anfield, Everton now find themselves in the bottom three with just six games left to play, but if they can perform as resolute and determined as they did yesterday for the remainder of the season they could still get out of it.

While nobody will have expected Everton to rock up to Anfield and start playing out from the back and playing Liverpool at their own game, many fans may have expected one of their midfielders, Allan, to complete more than two passes in the entire game, with both of them coming from kick-off.

TRIF Thoughts on Allan…

Which of these Serie A stars did the Toffees miss out on?

While Allan, who is valued at £16.2 million (as per Transfermarkt), didn’t play the full 90 minutes, he was on the pitch for 72 of them, so to only contribute two passes and one tackle in that period of time is simply inexcusable and could point toward how Everton only managed to register 17% possession all game.

The Brazilian midfielder has often been deployed as a holding midfielder so his role isn’t necessarily to control the game and dictate play which is highlighted by the fact he’s won the most tackles in Everton’s team, however, for any player to see his only registered passes come from kick off is slightly embarrassing and doesn’t bode well for him keeping his spot in the team moving forward.
