Toffees dismal League Cup run continues Live Blog Full time: Everton just made it hard on themselves today. Certainly should not have lost to Southampton at home. Made too many changes to a winning side and then the penalty debacle. Great save on Walcott’s penalty, but Richarlison should be very...

Icelandic star proves his worth in unnoticed ways. We heard it all week.
