 If he wanted to keep that type of pressing game he could have put Besic on for McCarthy in a straight-swap and kept the same shape. I don't know if Besic was on the bench but he could have named him on the benchif that was what he intended.

If introducing Besic is ever part of your tactical plan then you've seriously misinterpreted what is required.

He had someone to play with for once

I felt the drive and determination had gone, so to see him wanting the ball and busting a gut to get up the pitch warmed my heart.

Boooooooo! Besic for captain!

Unless you need a booking to complete your Acca.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Just watched the Unsworth press conference. The contrast between the him and Koeman was remarkable. If he transmits that enthusiasm, confidence and humour to the players we should see an improvement in attitude and performance on the pitch.

In my opinion it's Unsy's job to lose. If he delivers what we want and need then why gamble on an unknown he may not do as well? With big Joe supporting him and the club behind him what's not to like?

Whether or not Chelsea's B team was a good level of opposition, this looks good to me (click on the shot map):

We allowed some decent opportunities* and it's not unusual to lose to superior finishing/goalkeeping but, even if you take away Calvert-Lewin's goal at the end, it looks like we created the better chances.

* Not too much in the center of the box, though, which is promising.

Probably earned one though.

Good to keep him happy, endorse his importance to club. I wouldn't be surprised if a few clubs were in his agents ear.

Doesn't matter, this player is one we need to keep at Everton and if he wants a new contract, give him it.

Why what's he currently earning and how long is left on his contract?

It had a shape, which was an improvement. But interesting on several fronts.

Looks like doubling up with Kenny and Lennon, hampered their left side and limited Musonda's options and subsequently Batshuayi. While Mirallas left Zappacosta to play as right winger against Baines, without major effect.

We look the more unbalanced side, but they were dragged out of position. With Beni/Davies Lennon/Kenny both almost interchangeable and Mirallas as more direct 2nd striker or satellite in system. But Cahill is dragged out wide to cover threat on Chelsea's left, while Zappacosta created not a lot, despite advanced position and freedom.
