Everton slumped to another wretched home loss last night so let’s go through the team and give the player ratings from that 2-1 defeat by Aston Villa at Goodison Park.
The Everton and England number one had a superb match and thank God he did otherwise the Toffees would have lost by three or four.
He wasn’t at fault for either Villa goal and made a string of excellent, instinctive stops in the first half keeping out Olly Watkins for what would have been his second and Traore who nearly scored too. These saves kept the Blues in the match but in the end it was to no avail.
Coleman had a poor game overall he struggled defensively at times and couldn’t really get forward enough to create anything and support. He also failed to close down Anwar El Ghazi before he fired in the winning goal.
Everton’s French left-back had a quite match and his influence in the team has been declining recently and again last night he wasn’t able to really get involved although he did provide the ball from a corner for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goal.
The former Norwich City player has been enjoying a really good debut season at Goodison Park and while he wasn’t outstnading last night he didn’t do anything wrong and kept working and battling hard.
This was a wretched match for Holgate as his lazy back=pass allowed Watkins to score Villa’s opener and he struggled all evening to cope with the powerful forward as well as the marauding Traore who often attacked him.
