Everton will be looking to bounce back from their Merseyside derby defeat to Liverpool when they take on Newcastle United at Goodison Park tomorrow.
The Toffees came close to leaving Anfield with a point in what was a good performance, only for an absolute howler from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to deny them of that right at the death.
Overall, it was not one of Pickford’s best games with the 24-year-old having looked erratic throughout the whole match.
Looking at the season as a whole, though, Pickford has performed well, picking up from where he left off with England in the World Cup.
And with his mentality, the Three Lions shot-stopper will already be thinking ahead to the Newcastle game, putting his costly mistake at Anfield behind him as Everton look to chase down Tottenham in fifth place in what has been a good campaign for the club so far.
Have a look at how Everton supporters have reacted to Pickford’s error below…

Pick yourself up Jordan lad. How far did we get in the World Cup???? There wasn’t only 10 on the pitch then either

Luckily there is no intnl break. A midweek fixture is just what the doctor ordered. I would expect a great reception for him from the Goodison faithful. A home win and all will be forgiven by the vast majority…

Unlucky @JPickford1. Move on to next games and I'm sure goodison will be 100% behind you in Wednesday.

Deserves all the respect in the world. If you take the amount of saves against the odd fumble then you can see he is Top of the shop. Numero uno. Get in Jordan.
