Everton: Coleman puts on a disastrous defensive performance vs Wolves

Everton have lost their fourth game in a row after conceding a 1-0 defeat to Wolves this afternoon.

Now, Frank Lampard and his side are in an extremely vulnerable position joint on 22 points with 18th place Watford, adding pressure to their Premier League campaign in the final months of the season.

Yet again, the Toffees failed to make an impact in their pursuit to pick up points with the team running out of chances to keep their necks above water from falling into the drop zone, and they’re currently on the path to falling from the top flight for the first time in 51 years.

Guess the obscure Everton players...who is standing next to Lookman?

The story of Everton’s season has been the nightmarish defensive performances that have been put on display on several occasions so far, and it is clear Lampard is struggling to find the formula needed to inspire his defenders to see out games.

One player who has let the defensive line down time and time again this season is the captain, Seamus Coleman.

He has completely failed to lead his line and inspire his team to be more successful, something of which he is also unable to do for himself with repeated poor performances, and the Wolves clash at Goodison Park continued to prove that.

According to SofaScore, Coleman had the joint lowest rating in the team (6.6) and for good reason. The right-back lost possession of the ball every three touches against Bruno Lage’s side, made only 18 passes, while making no interceptions and no clearances during his 90-minute performance.

Should Everton drop Seamus Coleman?

The £68k-per-week dud is clearly on his way out in terms of being able to provide Everton with not only the defensive impact they need, but the ability to lead his side to better prospects. When you consider that he could captain the side to their first ever Premier League relegation, it puts a huge question mark as to whether he is the man to continue to lead the team in the future, no matter the outcome of the season.

Lampard must move forward and find a way to motivate his team to continue to take on the challenge with commitment, as the side will face Newcastle United in another home game at Goodison Park on Thursday evening.

This could be their last chance to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone, performing in one out of their three games in hand is the lifeline Everton can’t afford to neglect.
