Everton player ratings are here from their horrendous defeat against Tottenham

tennis player

Horrible, horrific, harrowing. The exact words describe Everton’s display against Tottenham. The Toffees conceded another loss in their relegation battle to sit just a place above 18th place, Burnley. Tottenham absolutely humiliated Everton to put 5 past them over the 90 minutes. Moreover, Spurs kept their Champions League hopes alive from the win. A disastrous Everton player ratings are lying ahead from their 5-0 thrashing.

The Toffees conceded a goal within the first 15 minutes, with Micheal Keane terribly putting Sessegnon’s cross in his own net. Before they could recover, Everton conceded a second. A quick move started by Harry Kane, who played Kulusevski to slide the ball to Son. Son Heung-min buried the ball the first time past Pickford whose efforts were horribly below-par. Kane soon piled misery on Everton, rifling his shot in the net from a delicious Doherty pass.

Everton tried to move up the field in the Spurs’ half, but Hojberg and Bentancur restricted them. Calvert Lewin and Richarlison had nothing as significant to offer in the first half. 33-years-old Seamus Coleman was vastly outdone by Sessegnon’s pace and failed to cope with Tottenham’s press. The second half started on the same note as substitute Reguilon added the third within a minute of the start. The whole Everton defense failed to track Reguilon’s run, who slotted the cross put-in by Kulusevski.

Another bizarre mistake from Pickford led to Everton conceding their fifth. Kane scored a volley from an absolute acute angle, where Pickford was again at fault for not covering his lines. Very little was done offensively by Everton, who saw Dele Alli and Vitaly Mykolenko come on later in the second half. Moreover, the attack of Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, and Anthony Gordon failed to put a shot on target for 90 minutes.

Everton player ratings- Goalkeeper and Defense

Jordan Pickford- 3/10

Pickford seems to have lost his touch. The ‘keeper is often caught sleeping and his efforts are lacking too. Although he couldn’t have done much about the own goal, more was expected from him for Son’s goal and Kane’s second. However, Pickford did pull off some decent saves to keep the scoreline from swelling further on.

Seamus Coleman- 2/10

Coleman was helpless as Sessegnon and Son ran past him. His age showed and was unable to pick up the pace. Lampard should have given a second thought before starting him against a side that had Sessegnon, Kane, and Son.

Mason Holgate- 3/10

Completely lost. Holgate had no connection as such with the Everton defense and was turned inside out by the Tottenham attackers.

Michael Keane- 1/10

We can’t help but lash out at Keane. He never was in the game right from the start when he scored the own goal. He failed to read the cross and instead put it past Pickford. Just wandered the pitch in helplessness. The only help he received was when Lampard took him off at half-time. Poorest rated player in Everton ratings.

Jonjoe Kenny- 3/10

Kenny was met with a similar fate as Coleman, with Doherty and Kulusevski terrorizing him on the left flank.


Abdoulaye Doucoure- 4/10

Doucoure was the only positive from the Everton midfield, who had a pass completion rate of 90% and won 7 out of 13 duels.

Allan- 3/10

Dismal from the midfielder. Allan surely has quality far more superior than this display, which he even tried to impose, but the tireless midfield of Tottenham never allowed.

Donny van de Beek- 2/10

A thing of beauty, but wasn’t joy forever. After some glittering performances initially for the Toffees, Van de Beek disappeared against Tottenham when Lampard needed him the most.


Anthony Gordon- 6/10

A figure among the ciphers. The youngster was a bright spot among a dismantled Everton side who constantly looked to progress up the field. The 21-year-old attempted a fearless 9 dribbles out of which he completed 4, and a massive 22 duels out of which 12 were won. Highest among the lowest in Everton player ratings!

Dominic Calvert-Lewin- 2/10

3 attempts were offered by Calvert-Lewin, however, none were on target. Nothing significant other than those three attempts in the attack.

Richarlison- 3/10

The Brazilian was kept quiet on the left flank by Doherty and Romero. It looked as if he wanted to offer something with his runs, but neither the midfield could provide those passes, nor he could find the spaces more often.


Jarrad Branthwaite- 4/10

Replaced Michael Keane at half-time. Branthwaite did provide flashes of attacking intent by having a go at the Tottenham defense.

Vitaliy Mykolenko- 3/10

Replaced Van de Beek in the 59th minute. The Ukrainian offered nothing but rather received a warm reception from the away fans.

Dele Alli- 3/10

Replaced Calvert-Lewin in the 69th minute. The fans’ favorite Dele Alli returned where he spent 6 and a half years and received a sumptuous round of applause after coming on. However, he too had a drab performance against his former side.
