Everton fans expecting poor result against Lyon

Most football fans get excited when a big game comes around, but Everton’s current form has got their supporters feeling woeful.

Ronald Koeman’s men have won just two of their eight Premier League games this season, which has left them two points above the relegation zone.

This evening, the team will switch their attention to the Europa League, where things have not gone much better.

The Merseyside outfit got the results that they needed during the qualifying rounds, but it was a different story when the group phase began.

A 3-0 defeat to Atalanta put Everton immediately on the backfoot, and they failed to recover when they welcomed Apollon Limassol to Goodison Park towards the end of last month.

Initially, the Toffees came from behind to put themselves 2-1 up, but a late header from Hector Yuste restricted the hosts to just a point.

Tonight, they welcome Lyon – a side that have recorded two draws in the group campaign so far.

Everton’s lack of firepower up front has been a concern in these last few months, and it is safe to say that some fans are not optimistic about this evening’s match.
