Everton supporters have been drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern in the last few days after seeing their side go down 5-1 away at Arsenal on Saturday, thus suffering their 11th Premier League defeat of the campaign.

Sam Allardyce’s men went into their clash with the North London giants off the back of beating Leicester City 2-1 at Goodison Park in midweek, in what was their first league victory of 2018. Yet the Toffees were unable to back that up as an Aaron Ramsey hat-trick as well as strikes from Laurent Koscielny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a comprehensive win for Arsene Wenger’s side, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s second half effort proving to be nothing more than a consolation for the travelling Toffees supporters.

Consequently, there have been many disappointed Evertonians in the Tavern this week, several of whom are trying to forget about Saturday’s horror show and instead focus all their attentions on this weekend’s massive encounter with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

In the meantime though, there has been much for our resident Everton fans to get their teeth into, not least a recent man-of-the-match display from former Toffee Gerard Deulofeu for new club Watford.

The 23-year-old left the Merseyside outfit back in the summer to re-join Spanish giants Barcelona, and was subsequently sent out on loan by the La Liga leaders in January after starting just ten times in the first half of the season.

And one his home debut for Javi Gracia’s Watford, the Spain international scored one and assisted another in a wonderful performance – one which had Everton fans on Twitter bemoaning their side’s decision to let the winger go, with the finger firmly pointed at former boss Ronald Koeman…

Everton fans… what do you think? Let us know!
