Everton: Keane, Kenny and Holgate struggle v Man City

Everton: Keane, Kenny and Holgate struggle v Man City -Everton News

Everton suffered a cruel 1-0 defeat at home to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday evening thanks to a late Phil Foden goal.

A couple of deflections took the ball into his path before he slotted past Jordan Pickford from close range, which ended up being the winning goal after a VAR check for a handball from Rodri in the box controversially did not result in a penalty kick for the hosts.

It was a spirited performance from Frank Lampard’s men, although in truth some players were better than others on the night. The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst performers were for the home side at Goodison Park:

Mason Holgate (6.4)

With a 6.4 overall rating given, Holgate ranked as the Toffees’ third-worst player.

The defender could not stop the cross coming in from City’s flank for the goal, and in general he struggled at times, albeit against world-class opposition.

He lost out on three of his duels in total and also failed to block any shots, while he was dribbled past twice and ended up losing possession 12 times.

Jonjoe Kenny (6.2)

Admittedly joint-worst in terms of rating among Everton players (6.2), Kenny ranks in second here as he personally did not make any individual errors.

However, the 24-year-old was guilty of losing four duels, while he also made no dribbles, interceptions, key passes, crosses or accurate long balls in the match. Kenny was also dribbled past twice and gave the ball away nine times.

Michael Keane (6.2)

Keane was also given a 6.2 rating, but he ranks as the Blues’ worst performer given his individual mistake which led to Foden’s goal.

Should Keane start for Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Aside from that error, the former Burnley defender made no tackles and lost the ball nine times on what was a night to forget for him personally.
