Now the table does look worrying.
Fans went into this game with some element of hope as it was at home, the famous angry intimidating Goodison Park, no side could come and play them off the park with ease.
Just like Manchester City, the best team in the country, figured out a couple of weeks ago.
However Wolves made a mockery of that as they strolled to a simple three points which has plunged Everton into even deeper trouble, especially after Leeds United and Watford won whilst Everton stumbled, struggled and suffered.
Watford are now level on points with Everton whilst Leeds are four points ahead and even though Burnley got beat by Brentford on Saturday they are still only one point behind Frank Lampard’s Blues.
Everton didn’t start too bad and in the opening 20 seconds Richarlison had a snapshot which went harmlessly wide which looked to set the tempo.
On the front foot from the off, ready to get at Wolves because they are fighting for their lives, that lasted for about 20 odd minutes as soon enough the backline dropped as the away side gained control and didn’t take their grip off the game from that moment on.
In the second half Wolves made sure their control counted towards something as it only took them four minutes to score the first and only goal of the game.
Ruben Neves delivered a beautiful ball into the box enabling captain Conor Coady to glance the ball into the Everton net.
The ex-Liverpool man and current Liverpool fan being the thorn in Everton’s side, if there was a script that would have certainly been in it.
Then the heads went down, the hope evaporated, the crowd sighed for the umpteenth time this campaign as it was almost like the game was a foregone conclusion even though there was 40 minutes left.
However it was exactly that, Jose Sa had nothing to do as Wolves continued to control and dominate a weak vulnerable side who now might actually go down.
Jonjoe Kenny summed up the afternoon as he got two yellow cards in the space of three minutes.
Frank Lampard has had six league games and has won one.
Any promise that his appointment brought has well and truly dwindled.
Newcastle at home next, a big one for the season is an understatement.
