Everton: Nathan Patterson, Michael Keane and Tom Davies disappoint

Everton: Nathan Patterson, Michael Keane and Tom Davies disappoint -Everton News

A much-changed Everton side slumped to a 4-1 defeat at Premier League rivals Bournemouth on Tuesday night, in the process being dumped out of the Carabao Cup.

Goals from Jamal Lowe, Junior Stanislas, Emiliano Marcondes and Jaidon Anthony were more than enough against the lacklustre visitors, who got themselves a consolation in the second half through Demarai Gray to make it 2-1 at the time.

Either way, nobody in a blue shirt really staked a claim to get more minutes in Frank Lampard’s first-choice XI. Using statistical experts SofaScore, The Transfer Tavern have analysed who the three worst outfield performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) were for Everton on the night:

Tom Davies (6.5)

Given that he played the full 90 minutes ahead of Anthony Gordon, Davies ranks as the Toffees’ third-worst outfield performer with a 6.5 overall rating.

The midfielder lost out on two of his duels and failed to record a shot on target, missing a big chance to get his name on the scoresheet.

He also made no dribbles, clearances or key passes and lost possession of the ball 12 times, the joint-fourth most in the squad, and the 24-year-old will likely lose his place to Amadou Onana or Idrissa Gueye at the weekend.

Michael Keane (6.1)

With a mere 6.1 rating, Keane was the Merseyside club’s second-worst outfield player on the night.

The defender lost three duels and also made no interceptions, getting dribbled past once and losing possession 15 times, the second-most out of his Toffees team-mates.

The trusted centre-back pairing of Conor Coady and James Tarkowski is likely to return at the weekend, with some reports that Keane could even leave on loan in the January transfer window.

Nathan Patterson (5.6)

Patterson was rated as the Blues’ worst performer with a 5.6 score.

After recently returning from injury, the young Scotsman did not have the best of games last night, losing five of his duels and recording no dribbles, clearances, key passes or accurate crosses.

He gave the ball away more than any other Everton player with 17 losses of possession, and crucially made an error which led directly to a Bournemouth goal.

This performance shows that Patterson is still learning his trade, so Lampard may stick with trusted captain Seamus Coleman at right-back over the weekend.
