    Yeah it wasnt meant to single out Tosin specifically but the partnership was awful. It was so easy for everton to play through them.

    Even a good defensive partnership can get found out if the midfield doesnt do it's protecting job very well. That's where I thought we got it wrong last night most significantly. I know Pep is very focussed on how we are defensively when we lose the ball and that was the area of key concern for me. when the opposition suddenly win the ball and break it seriously shows up defensive weaknesses if we are all over the place and individually we cant handle players.

    The first goal last night was a case in point where the break down the left could be handled if the full back was good enough but he wasn't. Dont know if it was Duheaney or more likely Oliver covering but to let the guy come back inside to shoot was criminal.

    Oliver is of the old fashioned center half style but he is simply not good enough especially in one to one situations.
