Everton fans in dismay over heavy defeat to Southampton

Everton’s miserable season continued on Sunday as the team were beaten 4-1 by Southampton at St Mary’s.

David Unsworth, who was promoted to the managerial role from the Under-23s on a temporary basis following Ronald Koeman’s sacking, has now overseen five defeats, one win and one draw.

Widespread reports have suggested that the 44-year-old is unlikely to be given the job on a permanent basis, and Sunday’s defeat will do little to help his case.

Everton headed into the game against Southampton at St Mary’s on the back of a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

The team were facing a side that had scored just twice in their last four Premier League matches, but they found goalscoring this weekend.

Dusan Tadic and Steven Davis got on the scoresheet, while Charlie Austin netted twice.

Everton are just two points above the relegation zone after 13 matches, and it is safe to say that the fans are struggling to find much optimism, particularly as the club are yet to appoint a new manager, despite it being over a month since Koeman was sacked.
