Everton Fixtures | A Festive Fixture Review

From a glutenous extravaganza to a tortuous trouncing, Everton?s fixtures over Christmas and New Year have been intoxicating to say the least.

Everton 2-6 Tottenham

Mauricio?s men were tremendous in trouncing and overcoming Everton at Goodison Park as Son Heung-Min scored twice in what was a performance that Everton wished they could ignore but know they can?t, not if they want to compete with those above them.

What ended as a rout began somewhat promising as Everton scored inside twenty-one minutes, however goals from Kane, Son, Alli and Eriksen condemned Everton to a thumping at best. This dismal display was epitomised by Everton?s number one who came marauding out of his area only to bang into Kurt Zouma. Son then converted a floated strike into a vacant net.

Sigurdsson?s consolation goal inside the hour mark was saluted with annoyance rather than euphoria as Everton had long since given up.

Everton had only conceded this amount at home on two separate occasions, both coming versus southern teams.

The opposition manager said that the enormous scoreline was ?a present.? However, had Marco Silva given this Everton fixture as a present, we?d be hoping he kept the receipt.

Burnley 1-5 Everton

What Everton needed on Boxing Day was a palate cleanser, then again, who doesn?t. Any hungover Evertonian?s who didn?t want to celebrate any more in the wake of Christmas Day were to be let down as Marco Silva?s men scored five past Burnley.

Not only did Mina open the scoring inside two-minutes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin earning a corner, but the Columbian international also scored Everton?s 7000th English League goal. This set the tone for what was the ideal reply in the wake of the last performance.

Unlike the previous Everton fixture in which they were slow and stagnant, here they were electric, scoring three equally electric goals thanks to Mina, Digne and Sigurdsson. Both Lucas Digne?s strikes were from outside the box and, as they bolted past Joe Hart, sent the away end into raptures.

Burnley did manage to score however through Ben Gibson who, interestingly, accompanies Ricky Van Wolfswinkel ? amongst many, many others ? in scoring on his debut against Everton.

Be that as it may, Richarlison?s ninety-second minute goal crowned what was a trouncing all of Everton?s own doing.

Brighton 1-0 Everton

But, as is the case with Everton at the moment, they are a Jekyll and Hyde team. This discouraging duality was on display when Marco Silva?s men lost 1-0 to Brighton just three days subsequent to scoring 5 away to Burnley.

Everton ? as they would do once again in the not so far away future on New Year?s Day ? created their own problems in a game which, on paper, they should have won. J?rgen Locadia?s winner was punishment for a slow start to the second half, a trope which has been synonymous with Everton for years.

In the wake of the Everton fixture which, to be honest, was always destined to prop up the Match of the Day running order, Silva said that it was his ?goal to be more consistent as a team in the New Year.?

These words nonetheless wouldn?t fall on deaf ears as Everton would go on to also lose on New Year?s Day.

Everton 0-1 Leicester City

Everton?s winter regression deepened on New Year?s Day as an almost desolate crowd lambasted the team into 2019.

The Evertonian?s who bothered to brave Goodison with a hangover probably wished they hadn?t as Everton?s old foe Jamie Vardy ? who seems to adore scoring in this fixture ? scored the opening goal of 2019 which condemned his favourite punching bag to yet another beating.

Simply put, this Everton fixture was unmemorable before it even got underway, while the ?action? that pursued did nothing to alter that.

Like those who will reluctantly return to work in the coming weeks, it is back to the drawing board for Everton and Marco Silva.
