Everton welcomed Aston Villa at Goodison Park earlier tonight as they looked to earn a much-needed win at home in the Premier League. The Toffees made a disappointing start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the 13th minute when Ollie Watkins found the back of the net for the Villans. However, Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelled his goal out just six minutes later when he equalised for the Merseyside outfit. Both teams went into the half-time break all level on the scoreline.

The West Midlands club grew stronger as the game wore off and finally managed to get themselves ahead again courtesy of a brilliant finish from Anwar El Ghazi in the 80th minute. The contest finished with Carlo Ancelotti’s men suffering a 2-1 loss at Merseyside.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player performed during the match against the Villans.

GK: Jordan Pickford – 6.5/10

The English goalie was excellent in the first half but won’t be pleased after conceding two goals during the game.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 6/10

Coleman defended resolutely at the back but only managed to create one good chance over the 90 minutes.

CB: Ben Godfrey – 7/10

He made quite a few crucial interceptions for his team and even blocked some shot attempts from the opposition.

CB: Mason Holgate – 5/10

Holgate made a poor mistake early on which led to Ollie Watkins’ opener. However, he was more solid after the early setback as he cleared the danger when needed.

LB: Lucas Digne – 8/10

The Frenchman didn’t put a foot wrong in the game when defending inside his half. He also created several promising opportunities for others around him and ended the game with an assist to his name for setting up Calvert-Lewin’s goal.

CM: Allan – 6.5/10

The Brazilian midfield ace got stuck in with a few tackles and engineered two decent openings in the opposition half.

CM: Andre Gomes – 6/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game and got replaced in the second half.

RM: Alex Iwobi – 6.5/10

Iwobi caused a few problems for the Villans defenders but didn’t perform well enough to get himself a goal.

CAM: Gylfi Sigurdsson – 5.5/10

The Icelandic international struggled to finish off his chances during the game. He ran out of gas and got subbed in the 81st minute.

LM: Richarlison – 6.5/10

The Brazilian attacker had his moments in the match but lacked the cutting edge in front of the opponent’s goal.

ST: Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 7/10

The English striker scored the all-important equaliser for his side in the first half. However, he didn’t get too many clear opportunities to add to his goal-tally.

Substitutes:

CM: Fabian Delph – 6/10

He added some energy to the Everton midfield.

RM: Bernard – 6/10

The Brazilian attacker offered very little in the decisive end of the pitch.

ST: Joshua King – N/A

King hardly had any time to influence the game.
