Five worst moments of Everton's season so far

David De Gea kicking

John Stones, Chelsea, Olivier Giroud and David De Gea provide the heartbreak for Everton fans.

Ten games into the Premier League season we take a quick look at the worst moments of Everton's campaign so far...

Stones injury

One of the stories of Everton's season was looking like becoming the emergence of John Stones.

The England international had become one of the Premier League's most impressive young defenders but he suffered a nasty ankle injury against Manchester United at the start of October - ruling him out until the New Year.

Chelsea thrashing

Everton had looked ropey at the start of the season but in no game was that more evident than the 6-3 home thrashing against Chelsea.

They looked dangerous going forward but in defence were very poor as the title favourites ran riot on Merseyside.

Giroud goal

Everton looked set to be getting one over on Arsenal once again in August. They were 2-0 up with eight minutes to go when they simply capitulated.

Aaron Ramsey clawed one back before Olivier Giroud scored a last minuted header to leave a sour taste in the mouth.

De Gea heroics

Everton should have got at least a point from their October meeting with Manchester United, were it not for David De Gea in the United goal. He made several world-class saves, including from a Leighton Baines penalty, to baile out United in a 2-1 win.

League Cup disaster

For all the good Everton do the fans would like to see a trophy.

Next summer it will be 20 years since they defeated Manchester United in the 1995 FA Cup Final and the club is still waiting for silverware.

Going out of the League Cup 3-0 against Swansea was a cheap submission.
