Pundit highlights Everton’s problem area

Everton have had a difficult season so far and it seems that things are not going to plan for the Merseyside outfit.

There was so much optimism in the summer due to the club’s spending spree in the transfer window, which amounted to around £150m.

However, after winning just two of their nine Premier League games of the season, manager Ronald Koeman was giving his marching orders.

David Unsworth – the Under-23s coach – is in temporary charge of the team and has overseen two matches so far.

The first was a 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, but a new wave of optimism spread across the fanbase, particularly because of the second-half performance.

On Sunday, though, the Toffees were beaten 2-0 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, and it highlighted the problem that they have had all season – a lack of threat in the final third.

The club may have spent millions on new recruitments in the summer, but one thing they failed to do was bring in an adequate replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who ended up joining Manchester United.

So far in the league the team have scored just seven goals in 10 outings, and even though there is a new man in charge, TV pundit and Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer thinks that one problem is still unresolved.
