I thought Walcott and Lookman have both shown why they're not starting.  They've had the chances to put the game away, and done nothing.  You can't imagine had Richarlison and Bernard had those same chances it would have finished 2-0.  The game turned when Richarlison started feeling his ribs in the first half.

The both looked bright, enterprising, and full of effort. Its great when your subs look that eager.

Bernard is great, but he is not a very good finisher.  A little harsh on Lookman given he has played so little this season.  Walcott at least got a solid run of games.

Schneiderlin is a conundrum because he is a good player

I don't disagree with that, but those qualities alone aren't enough.  There has to be a level of reliability, clinicalness and decisiveness as well.

Lookman did some really clever things on the ball, and Walcott is still our only player that can consistently get in behind. Two qualities there that we need.

He's two players is the problem.  He's a very good player, or he's a really bad player.  When he's good like today and when he first joined you'd have him nailed onto start.  When he goes like he did last season then you'd give him away for nothing.

Hopefully if we're changing the attitude of the crowd at goodison it'll take away some of the fear that bred last years downfall.

If only we had an attacker who could actually finish, DCL, Walcott and Lookman all missed fairly easy chances.

Schneiderlin is boss

Again, I won't disagree that those are things we need, but we also need at least one of the four chances they had between them to result in a goal.

I think all of them mentioned are good squad players, but we need better if we want to improve. Lookman, although I'm still very much undecided, is probably the one of those listed that I think has the best chance of succeeding

We really need a finisher. DCL is everything we need but he really struggles with finishing. Lookman is a better finisher but struggles with the basics at times. It is something that needs to be sorted before we progress. Tonight should have been a 3/4-0 given the chances we had.
