Everton welcomed Leicester City at Goodison Park earlier this evening as they hoped to earn a positive result at home. The Toffees made a decent start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 45th minute when Youri Tielemans scored a stunning goal. Frank Lampard’s men went into the half-time interval 1-0 down on the scoreline.
The Merseyside club conceded their second goal in the 86th minute as they crashed to a poor 2-0 defeat in front of their home fans.
Let’s take a look at how each Everton player fared during the match against the Foxes.

Coleman earned the ball back twice but offered very little in the final third.
CB: Conor Coady – 6/10
He cleared the danger when needed but won’t be pleased after failing to keep a clean sheet in both halves.
