Everton suffered a heart-breaking defeat against their arch-rivals Liverpool last week in the Merseyside derby. Despite doing so well to keep away the Reds from scoring for the whole of the game, a 94th minute Sadio Mane strike made them lose all three points. Ronald Koeman was under huge pressure when his side travelled to King Power Stadium and coming back with all three points from the champions will certainly relieve the fans.
From being crowned the champions of England last season against all the odds, Leicester City could be making history again this season by getting relegated after winning the title if they fail to pick up their game and do it really soon. A 2-0 loss at home against Everton deepens Claudio Ranieri’s concerns. It was not the best game for a neutral. Both teams looked lacklustre during most parts of the game but it was Everton who grabbed their opportunities.
The Toffees opened the scoring just after half-time, Mirallas picking up a deep kick from Joel Robles and fire past Kasper Schmeichel through a deflection of Marcin Wasilewski. Lukaku doubled the lead late in the game picking the ball from a clearance by Ross Barkley. It was not at all a straightforward finish. The Belgian shrugged off Wes Morgan and then beat Schmeichel pretty easily.
The Best And The Worst Everton Players Rated From Their Easy Win Against Leicester City.
Joel Robles: 7/10
A brilliant game from the Spanish keeper. Made some decent stops. Claimed the ball well and looked composed. Distribution was brilliant and bagged the assist for the Mirallas goal.
Mason Holgate: 7/10
Excellent composure showed by the young defender. Read the game well and was never really troubled.
Ashley Williams: 8/10
Read each and every danger coming his side’s way. One great tackle denied Slimani.
Ramiro Funes Mori: 5/10
Not the best game from the Argentine. His passing was sloppy and invited dangers.
Seamus Coleman: 6.5/10
Relished the wing-back role. Was brilliant in the first-half attacking wise but his impact was fading away in the second half.
