Everton boss Marco Silva has said that his side created enough chances to beat Aston Villa as Birmingham City’s ugly sister recorded her first win in the Premier League since Paris Saint-Germain thought Idrissa Gana Gueye was Magaye’s brother.
The Blues fell behind to a first half goal from Brazil’s second worst striker in history (Jo, if you were wondering) who managed to bully Yerry Mina all match, despite Mina pulling numerous hard man faces and passing him on to Michael Keane.
The game was then killed off in injury time as Everton’s lack of a cutting edge was the main topic of conversation for yet another week.
Very few players had what could even be called a decent game, but Alex Iwobi showed at least some potential when he came on, although he came on the wrong side of half time.
“My feeling was that we started the game well,” sighed Silva in a Sky Sports interview nobody wanted to do.
“The first time they went in our box they scored.
“They did a quick free kick and our line was not the best in that moment and we should follow the player.
“We didn’t start the second half as well but even then we had the more creativity.
“We created more chances but we didn’t score.
“It was a similar game to the on at Palace, we created but didn’t score.
“We created more chances than them but they scored more than us.
“We had three clear chances to score and we should have scored.
“It’s a bad feeling. This is a tough place to play.”
