Will the real Everton stand up? The memorable come from behind display against Man Utd last weekend seems to have drained the Toffees.
Against Newcastle they looked sluggish and disinterested. Which suited the Toons just fine because French import Hatem Ben Arfa made them pay with a sizzling left footed strike. Fabricio Coloccini became Newcastle’s saviour when he blocked Marouane Fellaini’s shot which had equalizer written on it. Everton’s performance ended with boos raining down Goodison Park.
They now share the bottom of the table with West Ham and Wigan. A side that boasting Mikel Arteta, Steven Pienaar, Louis Saha. Yakubu, and Tim Cahill should not find themselves in such a position.
