Everton left it late to secure a draw against Leicester on Sunday afternoon, in what will go down as a bad performance.
Several of their key men failed to perform for the Blues after playing so well in the Europa League in midweek, with 'keeper Tim Howard at fault for both Leicester goals.
Up front, Romelu Lukaku had a game to forget as he struggled against Leicester back five. The Belgian had been superb against Young Boys in midweek, bagging himself a hat-trick and generally impressing with his all round play.
Not so much on Sunday though, as he missed several big chances for the home side that could have seen them end up as clear winners. We took a look at his stats from the game.

First and foremost, it seemed the forward had scored the equaliser late on for Everton but that has now been classed as an own goal, meaning he finished the game without a goal to his name.
He also failed to take any of the big chances that came his way, with the stats above showing he in fact missed three big chances in the game. Elsewhere, he had a total of nine scoring attacks in the game, but failed to get a single one on target to test to 'keeper Mark Schwarzer.
A disappointing and frustrating game for Lukaku then, who failed to score despite a whole host of clear-cut chances. If Everton are to start moving up the table, they need their star forward to take those chances sooner rather than later, but on today’s showing, they may be waiting a while yet.
