Everton fans react as three of their on-loan players score

Getting dumped out of a cup competition is never an enjoyable moment for football fans, but Everton’s night of misery was made even worse by news elsewhere.

In the summer, Nikola Vlasic, Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic were all sent on loan to CSKA Moscow, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough respectively.

On Tuesday night Marco Silva made seven changes to his team to face Southampton in the fourth round of the EFL Cup at Goodison Park.

Theo Walcott managed to cancel out Danny Ings’s opener, but when penalties ensued after full-time the ex-Arsenal star and teammate Richarlison missed from the spot to hand the Saints a place in the next round.

Plenty of Everton fans were disappointed as the competition was one of few realistic opportunities for the club to pick up silverware.

To make matters worse, the supporters discovered that Bolasie netted the equalising goal for Villa in a 3-3 draw with Preston North End on the same night, while Besic scored the opener in a 2-0 triumph over Ipswich Town.

Vlasic nabbed the headlines, though, as he scored the only goal to deny Real Madrid in a Group G Champions League match.
