Everton slipped to their first defeat under Marco Silva as they were beaten 3-1 by West Ham United at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees went into the game unbeaten this season whereas West Ham were without a win or even a point under Manuel Pellegrini, but the form book was turned on its head.

West Ham went in front when Marko Arnautovic ran on to a ball over the top and squared for Andriy Yarmolenko to score, with Jordan Pickford woefully exposed.

 

Pickford then showed rare poor distribution, which resulted in Yarmolenko cutting in on his left foot and bending the ball into the top corner of the net, beyond Pickford.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's header from a Jonjoe Kenny cross did give Everton some hope before half time, but Arnautovic wrapped up the scoring by finishing off Pedro Obiang's pass.

Everton fans were understandably disappointed with the performance, and a host of players received major criticism on Twitter from supporters during and after the game, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin a particular scapegoat.

Calvert-Lewin started out wide but moved up front when Bernard came on in the first half, but struggled to make any sort of impact, failing to build on his goal against Huddersfield Town last time out.

Fans took to Twitter to claim that Calvert-Lewin simply isn't good enough and is of Championship standard, adding that he is 'absolute bobbins' and should move on in January to get away from Everton fans criticising him, with few impressed with his display against West Ham.
