Win on 'top six' turf proves elusive but Everton finish campaign in optimistic mood

Lyndon Lloyd : 12/05/2019

The Blues recovered from a poor start and probably should have won which represents progress on the last two clashes with Tottenham.

Everton end home campaign having restored Fortress Goodison

Lyndon Lloyd : 04/05/2019

Goodison Park has indeed become a fortress again and this was a pleasingly routine win even if it left you feeling a little unfulfilled at the way Everton eased off the pedal in the second half.

Blues held to disappointing but hugely instructive draw

Lyndon Lloyd : 28/04/2019

While the dominance of the contest was there in combination with another impressive defensive performance, the requisite quality in the final third was not and in that sense, if nothing else, this game was instructive of what Everton still need in terms of additions to the squad if they are to achieve their aims over the next couple of seasons.

Magnificent Everton serve up Easter misery for United

Lyndon Lloyd : 21/04/2019

Just like the Chelsea and Arsenal results before them, this brilliant victory and the performance that underpinned it should form another piece of the roadmap forward under Marco Silva.

Truly 'Everton, that'

Lyndon Lloyd : 13/04/2019

Everton really are beyond parody at times. Against the second-worst team in the Premier League who had lost nine on the spin and only kept one clean sheet all season, they lost in miserable fashion

Silva has Everton back on track with fourth win in six

Lyndon Lloyd : 07/04/2019

The Blues saw off a third London team in the space of 14 days to register their fourth win in six games with a 1-0 victory over Champions League-chasing Arsenal

Benchmark performance points to a brighter future under Silva

Lyndon Lloyd : 31/03/2019

With the pressure on their collective shoulders easing, Everton are starting to express themselves once again and Silva appears to have found a settled formula that will underpin the push to finish seventh over the remaining six games

A result to savour despite Everton's continuingly split personality

Lyndon Lloyd : 17/03/2019

Another game of two halves, this time with Everton putting on the show in the second period to record a handsome 2-0 win over Chelsea

Dr Jekyll, Mr Hyde and the Pantomime Villain

Lyndon Lloyd : 09/03/2019

A quintessential game of two halves; wondering where this imaginative and purposeful Everton has been the past three months in the first to cursing the mental fragility and abysmal game management that this Blues team exhibits in the second.

Another 'morale victory'

Lyndon Lloyd : 04/03/2019

The Goodison derby ended goalless for the second season running thanks to some sterling work from the likes of Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane and Everton's shortcomings at the other end

Blues sweep Cardiff aside for welcome win

Lyndon Lloyd : 27/02/2019

Gylfi Sigurdsson enjoyed his first return to South Wales since leaving Swansea for Everton, emerging the victor with two goals and a man-of-the-match display to his credit

One more “L” in the results column

Lyndon Lloyd : 09/02/2019

Nine defeats in 14 Premier League matches is relegation form. With 33 points already on the board, only a complete collapse could see Everton under threat of going down this season but when it’s hard to see where the next win is going to come from, it doesn’t bode well for the manager’s continued employment

Continuing set-piece failings undermine improved Everton display against City

Lyndon Lloyd : 07/02/2019

Marco Silva got the beginnings of a reaction to Everton's poor recent form but his side remains largely toothless and is still leaking soft goals

“Well, It's Groundhog Day... Again!”

Lyndon Lloyd : 02/02/2019

This is all starting to look horribly familiar.

Blues show stomach for the fight

Lyndon Lloyd : 29/01/2019

Everton dragged themselves off the mat with a slender but hard-fought victory at Huddersfield

Silva's first season in tatters as shambolic Blues are dumped out by Millwall

Lyndon Lloyd : 26/01/2019

Two wins from ten in the Premier League has seen the Blues fall irretrievably away from top-six contention and now the 2018-19 season is effectively over before the end of January after an embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Millwall in front of a national audience

Questions at every turn as brittle Blues succumb to spirited Saints

Lyndon Lloyd : 20/01/2019

If you didn’t know better, you would have said on this evidence that it was Everton who were the ones haunted by the threat of the drop and had just been through a 120-minute cup tie in midweek

Lookman impresses as Everton battle to much-needed victory

Lyndon Lloyd : 13/01/2019

An ugly victory that masked some continuing issues but a victory nonetheless which will hopefully inject some confidence into the Blues’ veins

Everton make hard work of despatching League Two Imps

Lyndon Lloyd : 05/01/2019

In the cup, the final score is always paramount but in view of the calibre of the opposition, this should have been a lot more convincing than it was

New Year, Same Old Problems

Lyndon Lloyd : 01/01/2019

If 2019 is to be the year where the latest Everton project begins to bear fruit, there was precious little evidence of it during this dire New Year’s Day lunchtime kick-off.

Erratic Everton continue to infuriate

Lyndon Lloyd : 29/12/2018

This trip to Brighton was every bit as difficult as it promised to be beforehand but too many players aren’t producing where it counts and as long as that continues, the more frustrating this season will continue to be

Determined Blues hit Burnley with a bunch of fives at Turf Moor

Lyndon Lloyd : 26/12/2018

Everton came off the mat swinging after getting floored by Spurs to thrash Burnley and recover some self respect.

Spurs deliver savage dose of reality for Silva and Everton

Lyndon Lloyd : 24/12/2018

A miserable reality check that left any notion that Marco Silva’s nascent Everton revolution was at the point where it could challenge the top six in tatters for the time being

Mission Impossible?

Lyndon Lloyd : 15/12/2018

Manchester City had too much for them in the end but, with better finishing, Everton could have made much more of a contest of this one than they eventually did

Two steps forward, one step back

Lyndon Lloyd : 10/12/2018

Lucas Digne scored a stunner but it failed to gloss over a sub-standard Everton performance that points to more work ahead for Marco Silva

Fifth straight home win eludes flat and uninspired Everton

Lyndon Lloyd : 06/12/2018

As it was, the spoils were shared and there’s no way to look at it from the Everton point of view other than as two points lost in the context of their recent home form and their top-six aspirations.

Another day of derby misery but our time will come

Lyndon Lloyd : 02/12/2018

The tragedy of the final result was that Klopps’s side were there for the taking if Everton had just been able to get their act together long enough going forward after the interval

Everton grind out another important win with Sigurdsson's timely strike

Lyndon Lloyd : 24/11/2018

No match is easy in England’s top flight anymore but once again Everton got the job done without really getting into anything like top gear

Chelsea point represents another step forward for Everton under Silva

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

Richarlison dazzles again as Everton cruise to victory over Brighton

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

Not your run-of-the-mill Old Trafford defeat

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

Silva's stars begin to align as Everton top Leicester

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

Everton make their quality tell to put paid to Fulham

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

Signs of progress amid the gloom of another Emirates defeat

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

Question marks all over the shop

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

An opportunity missed but some harsh lessons hopefully learned

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

Encouraging signs as Everton earn first win under Silva

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.

Richarlison thrills as 10-man Blues are denied victory by Wolves

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…
