Everton fail to have a shot on target as they are embarrassed at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium

Frank Lampard suffered the worst defeat of his managerial career as his Everton side got beat by five goals to nil.

The Blues opened the scoring for Tottenham as Michael Keane horrendously sliced a clearance forcefully into his own net attempting to get rid of the ball.

It flew past Jordan Pickford who couldn’t do anything about it on his birthday and then England’s number one gave Heung-Min Son a gift as he let his weak shot squirm under his body for Spurs to increase their lead in double quick time.

With around ten minutes to go until half time Harry Kane made sure the game was well and truly over as he went through on goal after bullying Keane in the build-up, it was a typical clinical finish to make the away fans yet again question why they travelled as it now meant Everton have the worst away record in the division.

40 seconds into the second half Sergio Reguilon’s first touch of the game was Tottenham’s fourth goal after some more shambolic defending as the Spaniard was free at the back post.

Harry Kane then made it five with a sumptuous volley after only 55 minutes.

The away end expectedly started to empty as more and more hope for Evertonians started to leave their souls as with 35 minutes to go this rout was one of the most embarrassing this season.

Player ratings:

Jordan Pickford: 4

On his 200th Premier League appearance he made his first notable mistake of the season for Son’s goal without him though it could have been eight nil as he made some decent stops.

Seamus Coleman: 3

Defensively shocking all game as he was out of position for multiple of the goals.

Mason Holgate: 3

Surprise that he never got booked after giving away several fouls, was schooled by Kane.

Michael Keane: 2

Horrendous own goal as he more or less volleyed the ball into his own net, hooked off at half-time.

Jonjoe Kenny: 4

Wasn’t too bad but cannot be a good performance if you are part of a defensive unit that concedes five goals.

Allan: 3

Tottenham allowed him time on the ball at all times as his creative ability is seriously lacking.

Abdoulaye Doucoure: 2

Was never in the game, Rodrigo Bentancur knew where he was at all times.

Donny Van De Beek: 3

Never got control of the midfield.

Richarlison: 3

Didn’t have the chance to put any pressure on the Spurs backline due to how much they dominated.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin: 2

Didn’t look fit, was no surprise to see him substituted off.

Anthony Gordon: 5

Looked like the only one with some effort in the first half, again Everton’s bright light on a dim evening.

Substitutions:

Jarrad Branthwaite (Michael Keane 46): 4

Stark improvement on Keane.

Vitaliy Mykolenko (Donny Van De Beek 59): 3

Was brought on to make the backline a five, done ok but couldn’t do too much worse than his teammates did in the first hour.

Dele Alli (Dominic Calvert-Lewin 69): 2

Couldn’t do anything as the game was over when he came on.
