Their eventual defeat, however, in fact marked only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problems facing Everton on the back of Sunday’s clash.

Not only that, but fellow countryman Richarlison, visibly furious with his boss’ decision to haul him off early in the 2nd-half, is also said to have picked up ‘a calf problem’:
