Everton: Pickford, Keane and Holgate struggled v Palace

Everton: Pickford, Keane and Holgate struggled v Palace -Everton News

Everton were dumped out of the FA Cup this afternoon after a 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace in what was another dismal performance from Frank Lampard’s men.

Marc Guehi, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Wilfried Zaha and Will Hughes all got themselves on the scoresheet as the Toffees simply could not find a way to keep the home side out.

There were some truly worrying displays from a few of the Everton players, and 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 visitors on the day:

Mason Holgate (6.1)

With a 6.1 overall rating given, Holgate ranked as Everton’s third-worst player.

Only the biggest Everton fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Don Hutchinson sold to?

The defender lost out on three of his duels and only made one tackle, while his mere 63% pass accuracy was one of the worst recorded out of his team-mates.

Holgate also gave possession away on 19 separate occasions, the joint-second most out of any Toffees player.

Michael Keane (6.0)

Keane ranked as their second-worst performer with a 6.0 rating.

The former Burnley man was unsuccessful in five of his duels and failed to make any tackles or blocks, while he was guilty of losing the ball 13 times.

Jordan Pickford (5.9)

Pickford was given a lowly 5.9 rating, and with four goals conceded, the ‘keeper unsurprisingly ranked as his team’s worst performer.

Should Everton sell Pickford?

Yes

Yes

No

No

While he was helpless for some of the goals, the third from Zaha was pretty strange as the England number one just seemed to watch the ball loop onto his post without any reaction.

Pickford was unsuccessful with nine of his long balls in total, the most out of any Blues player, while he also lost possession nine times and only made two saves in the entire match.
