Everton lost 3-2 to Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
Everton lost again in the Premier League this afternoon after a shocking capitulation against Watford saw them lose 3-2 at Vicarage Road.
Everton took the lead through Romelu Lukaku but then defended poorly as Watford stretched away to a 3-1 lead. Lukaku grabbed a late goal to provide an exciting finale but in the end the Hornets claimed glory.

Many of the Everton players failed to cover themselves in glory. Lukaku, for his brace, was cumbersome and offered little. If he had tried, who knows how many he might have scored.
Kevin Mirallas was a phantom, James McCarthy off pace and even Ashley Williams did not have his best game.
But it was Seamus Coleman who got most of the stick from Everton fans on Twitter. The reason for that however is that Everton have a brilliant young replacement waiting in the wings.

Mason Holgate had an excellent start to the season with Coleman out injured. He has dropped to the bench since Coleman returned and Everton, defensively, have capitulated.
Many an Everton fan wants to see Holgate back in the first-team and Coleman dropped to the bench.
Here are some of the best tweets on the matter…
Coleman. Big fan. One of the few I'd keep but Holgate has to be given a chance the kids not put a foot wrong.— Roger Mottram (@rogerefc) December 10, 2016

Why is Coleman being picked over Holgate? Coleman has been terrible all season! Holgate was instrumental in getting a draw over Man Utd!— BloggersoftheWorld (@bloggersofworld) December 10, 2016
Coleman - love him but his RB days are past him, play Holgate at RB & Coleman RM.— Jake (@JakeWhite16) December 10, 2016

Proper 2/10 from Coleman today. Holgate must be horrendous in training #EFC— Matt Jones (@MattJFootball) December 10, 2016
