Everton

Silva demands Toffees response

24th December 2018, 05:05 by Michael Holland

Everton boss Marco Silva says he will get to the bottom of why his side fell apart during the 6-2 defeat against Tottenham.

Everton took the lead with Theo Walcott's first league goal in four months, but, after Gylfi Sigurdsson briefly made it 4-2, they fell apart.

It left Silva with plenty of questions to answer, with his side in 11th place with 24 points, a worse position than at Christmas last year when they were ninth with 26 and on their third manager, Sam Allardyce, having dispensed with Ronald Koeman and caretaker David Unsworth.

The Portuguese, however, felt the disallowing of Dominic Calvert-Lewin's header with the score at 1-0 was pivotal, although he refused to make excuses.

"Really bad afternoon for us, really bad result for us as a team and our fans," he said. "We have to realise why and we will for sure. We started the match well and we scored.

"We scored a second goal, in my opinion, but talking about the ref is not my way and I don't look for excuses. I didn't see nothing, the match would have been really different.

"We made the first mistake in the match when they equalised and the game changed completely."
