Everton will stay in the bottom three for one week at least after the ‘New Manager’ bounce failed to deliver anything different from the results witnessed under sacked manager Ronald Koeman
The club’s U23 manager, David Unsworth, has been mandated to lead the team in the immediate future however his appointment on a temporary basis has failed to lift the club with his latest game ending in a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
The result represents a bright start for new Leicester City manager Claude Puel, who was confirmed as the club’s permanent manager last week.
Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray were on the scoresheet to help the Foxes a result that catapulted the club to 11th on the English Premier League (EPL) table.
In the earlier game played on Sunday, Brighton and Hove Albion played out a 1-1 draw with Southampton in the South Coast derby. The away side took an early lead at the Amex Stadium through Steven Davis’ 7th minute strike but Brighton striker Glenn Murray scored the equaliser seven minutes after halftime to make it 3 goals in his last 2 league games.
Both sides failed to add to their tally as they settled for a stalemate that took Southampton to 9th while Brighton occupy the 12th spot on the log with the additional point gained.
Leicester City 2-0 Everton
Brighton 1-1 Southampton
