Frank Lampard’s difficult start to life with the Toffees continued after his side were smashed 5-0 away from home last night at the hands of Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.
Going in at half-time, the Blues were already 3-0 down. The former Chelsea boss tried to turn things around with a substitution ready for the second half, before being humbled 41 second after the restart, with Sergio Reguilon sweeping home Dejan Kulusevski’s cross.
Harry Kane finalised the embarrassing result for the Toffees, who remain just one point above the relegation zone.
The Transfer Tavern have now used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who Everton’s three worst performers were on the day (to have played 45 minutes), with Lampard perhaps looking at these three players for possible changes ahead of a difficult clash against Wolves this weekend…
Michael Keane (5.8)
Keane was ranked as the third worst Toffees player with a 5.8 overall rating from SofaScore.
The defender scored an own goal before being shipped off at half-time, as Lampard tried desperately to provide more solidity at the back.
The former Burnley man failed to register a single one in any of the key four defensive statistics – clearances, blocks, tackles and interceptions – while he was also dribbled past and lost the ball once apiece and won just a single duel.
Seamus Coleman (5.8)
Admittedly tied with Keane in terms of rating (5.8), Coleman played the full 90 minutes compared to the centre-back’s one half – so the Irishman ranks second worst for the day.
The Everton captain also failed to make a single tackle or interception during the game.
More damagingly though, he lost the ball 16 times and failed to make a single key pass or accurate cross, offering just as little going forward as both he and Keane did defensively.
Jordan Pickford (4.9)
With a poor 4.9 rating, Pickford was ranked as the Toffees’ worst performer against Tottenham.
This comes as little to no surprise, having conceded five goals within the first 55 minutes.
The goalkeeper lost the ball on 11 occasions, with a 54% pass accuracy affecting Everton’s play right from the very back.
He failed to make a single punch or high claim throughout the match, and even made an error which led to a goal – topping off a performance which he would have been disappointed with, regardless of the score-line.
