Lyndon Lloyd : 11/11/2018
Though things didn’t quite come together in the attacking third as the manager would have hoped or the impressively vocal travelling fans might have dreamed this result and the display that underpinned it are evidence of further progress in the Portuguese’s nascent tenure
Michael Kenrick : 11/11/2018
Everton endured their toughest test to date this season when they stopped Chelsea scoring at Stamford Bridge, but lacked the guile needed to win the game.
Paul Traill : 04/11/2018
Everton, especially in the second half, ripped Brighton apart in what was as fine a 45 minutes I’ve seen from the Blues in some time.
Lyndon Lloyd : 03/11/2018
A handsome win and yet you feel there is still quite a bit of unfulfilled potential in this team which is pretty exciting for the future under Marco Silva
Michael Kenrick : 03/11/2018
Three excellent goals, two from Richarlison and one from Coleman, sealed the win over a resistant Seagulls side.
Lyndon Lloyd : 28/10/2018
Ultimately, it was another dispiriting loss at Old Trafford but with enough to keep alive the hope and belief that Everton are moving in the right direction under Silva
Michael Kenrick : 28/10/2018
Everton produce an ultimately disappointing display by failing to beat a very beatable Manchester United side on their turf.
Paul Traill : 21/10/2018
With time receding and Everton on the front foot, Lookman picked up the ball at the edge of the penalty area and crossed, Calvert-Lewin, despite Wayne Hennessey getting a hand to it, heading the ball into the net and triggering jubilant scenes in the stands.
Michael Kenrick : 21/10/2018
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun both came on to score late goals as Crystal Palace make it very difficult, Pickford saving a penalty won by Zaha.
Lyndon Lloyd : 06/10/2018
It may have taken a world-class goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson but Everton were full value for their first away win under Marco Silva
Michael Kenrick : 06/10/2018
Everton got off to a brilliant start at Leicester with Bernard's trickery setting up a fine finish for Richarlison after just 7 minutes. But the second from Sigurdsson was a worldie.
Paul Traill : 02/10/2018
There was a sad inevitability about Theo’s spot kick being saved, and it wasn’t a great effort. The keeper guessed right and stopped it. As Cedric walked up to take the final penalty I noticed several people already leaving in the Park End. Truth be told, had my seat been nearer the aisle than it is I’d perhaps have done the same. Cedric scoring was as inevitable as Silva making so many changes to the team.
Paul Traill : 30/09/2018
Overall, a nice win and an important one. As we have in our last two games, Fulham will rue them missed chances in the first half. The Premier League is unforgiving and if you miss your chances you are usually punished. Let’s hope this win can be a catalyst for us to be more clinical with our opportunities moving forward.
Lyndon Lloyd : 29/09/2018
While far from fully convincing, this was an important result that can provide a catalyst from which to get some forward momentum on the season
Michael Kenrick : 29/09/2018
Sigurdsson finally delivered after missing a penalty but scoring two fine goals, Cenk Tosun getting his first of the season.
Lyndon Lloyd : 24/09/2018
Ultimately, this was a routine result for this particular fixture in scoreline only and 2-0 was harsh on an Everton team that had done more than enough to earn at least a point
Michael Kenrick : 23/09/2018
Everton took the game to Arsenal brilliantly in the first half but crucially failed to score, and the inevitable happens in the second half.
Lyndon Lloyd : 16/09/2018
This was very much a story of contrasting individual stories and it throws up a slew of talking points about just how strong Marco Silva’s team actually is and whether the system favoured up to this point — not to mention the personnel within it — has any future
Michael Kenrick : 16/09/2018
Everton self-destruct with two horrible goals given away in a shockingly awful first-half display against the bottom side.
Dave Williams : 02/09/2018
Back in the house by 11:15 pm – a very long day and the fact that what I talked about when I got in was meeting Tony Bellew says it all about the football.
Paul Traill : 02/09/2018
A poor performance, the worst in five games, but we all need to understand that this is going to take a lot of time
Michael Kenrick : 01/09/2018
Everton went behind all too easily off another corner but responded immediately through Calvert-Lewin, yet they could not break through again in a dreadful second half.
Paul Traill : 30/08/2018
There was enough quality on the pitch to ensure our place in the third round was sealed, thanks to a Gylfi Sigurdsson tap-in and a brace from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Steve Ferns : 27/08/2018
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.
Lyndon Lloyd : 25/08/2018
Rome wasn’t built in a day and Everton won’t be rebuilt over the course of a summer, a couple of transfer windows or even a season but this felt like another big missed opportunity nonetheless
Michael Kenrick : 25/08/2018
A crazy game on the south coast, ended in stalemate with a player from each side sent off and Keane stretchered off.
Steve Ferns : 20/08/2018
After the horror shows in pre-season, it was good to see the old guard perform so well with just the addition of Richarlison and this gives so much hope for the future as the big signings break into the first XI, and everyone gets to grips with Silva's tactics, and his coaching continues to improve players.
Paul Traill : 19/08/2018
A good and deserved win with good football played at times. With our new players still to be integrated, you have to be excited about what we might be able to do this season.
Lyndon Lloyd : 18/08/2018
What’s really exciting for Evertonians is that, really like the team’s performance as a whole, you get the sense there is much, much more to come from Richarlison who already has three goals to his name.
Michael Kenrick : 18/08/2018
Marco Silva orchestrated a splendid start to his first home Premier League fixture as Everton put two finely worked goals past Southampton.
Lyndon Lloyd : 12/08/2018
It may not have ended up that way in this game but it looks like Everton have a bona fide match-winner in Richarlison. Even better, four of Silva’s signings have yet to make their first appearances. It feels like things are just getting started…
Michael Kenrick : 11/08/2018
Everton's 2018-19 Premier League campaign began with a draw in front of the BT cameras in the late-afternoon kick-off at Molineux against newly-promoted Wolves.
