Everton have missed a few tricks in the opening weeks of Marco Silva’a first campaign in charge but time is needed for important players to become available and for things to gel as a whole
Evertonians laud the club’s lineage of talismanic goal scorers but some wonderful marksmen are somewhat overlooked. One of them, Jack Southworth, remains the only Everton player to score a double hat-trick in a first team match. Yet there was much more to this polymath who excelled on both musical and sporting stages.
So many positives to take from the game, but it was far from perfect. We will be better than this. This is all about progression.
