Everton: Richarlison, Doucoure and Gray struggled v Newcastle

Everton: Richarlison, Doucoure and Gray struggled v Newcastle -Everton News

Everton grabbed a vital three points in the Premier League on Thursday night with a 1-0 win at home to Newcastle United.

Alex Iwobi scored the winner deep into injury time after the match was delayed for several minutes when a protester tied himself to one of the goalposts at Goodison Park.

It was not plain sailing for the Merseyside club by any stretch of the imagination, though, as the visitors had more possession of the ball and more shots on goal. The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) were for the home side on the night:

Demarai Gray (6.7)

Given a 6.7 rating, Gray ranked as the Toffees’ third-worst player.

The winger lost out on six of his seven duels and failed to record a single shot on target, while he also gave the ball away 10 times.

Struggling to make any major impact, Gray was substituted off for Dominic Calvert-Lewin with the score still at 0-0.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (6.6)

Admittedly tied as Everton’s worst starter in terms of overall rating (6.6), Doucoure ranks second here as he at least kept a clean sheet as a defensive midfielder.

However, the Frenchman lost a player-high 13 duels and never managed a shot on target, successful dribble, interception or key pass, losing the ball on 13 separate occasions.

He also committed four fouls, again more than any other player on the pitch.

Richarlison (6.6)

With a 6.6 rating, Richarlison ranks as the Blues’ worst performer on the night.

Will Richarlison leave Everton this year?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Brazilian was unsuccessful in a mammoth 12 of his duels, while he managed no shots on goal at all and lost the ball 15 times, committing three fouls in the process.
