Everton have shown signs of progress since Marco Silva took charge as manager in the summer.
However, at the weekend they were on the losing end of a 3-1 scoreline at Goodison Park.
West Ham United arrived in Merseyside with the hope of ending a four-game losing run in the Premier League, and they managed to do so thanks to two goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and one from Marko Arnautovic.
Gylfi Sigurdsson managed to get on the scoresheet for Everton, but it was a disappointing display from the Toffees, who were favourites heading into it due to West Ham’s winless start the season.
Silva recruited plenty of new faces in the summer window, and one man he allowed to leave on loan was Nikola Vlasic, who joined CSKA Moscow for the 2018-19 campaign.
The attacking midfielder – valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt – has made just 19 appearances for Everton since moving to the club last year.
In that time, Vlasic scored twice and registered one assist, but for CSKA he is getting much more time on the pitch.
The 20-year-old has played the full 90 minutes in three of four appearances for the Russian outfit, and in a recent 3-0 triumph over Ufa, he bagged himself an assist.
Given that Everton’s attacking options have been a bit threadbare of late, has Silva made the wrong decision by letting Vlasic leave?
