Goodison Tactics: What went wrong for Everton?
Everton fell to a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad in the Premier League.
Goals from Raheem Sterling, Rodri, and Bernardo Silva wrapped up a comfortable win for Pep Guardiola’s side.
The Toffees started relatively well and limited City to very little, but once they scored their first, Everton offered very little in response, and the winless run continues.
Of course, Rafael Benitez’s side have loads of injuries, but other teams have caused problems to City this season, and Everton didn’t.
Here is our analysis of the three goals.
Now, the pass from Cancelo was out of this world; there is no question.
However, if you give good players that much time, they will come up with moments of genius like that.
Not one Toffees player even tried to close him down.
Keane gets himself in an awkward position, and the ball is past him before he even realises it.
This was a quality goal, but the Toffees still made it too easy.
Again, this was a fantastic goal. The strike was sensational and nearly broke the net.
However, what on earth was Allan doing?
He has to find Delph, or if he is trying to clear the ball, he has to get it up the pitch away from the danger zone.
This was definitely the worst goal that City scored, and because Keane turned his back, he couldn’t see Silva or the ball.
Then as he turned around, he saw the little midfielder stick his shot into the far corner.
So, this was definitely a game for Keane, Allan, and the team to forget.
However, the Toffees have to find three points from somewhere, but Brentford next week won’t be easy either.
