Everton and Allan As a result of Manchester City’s missteps, the truth emerges.
At the Etihad on Sunday, Everton wore black and red.
Given the thrashing inflicted on the Everton players’ reputations, it might as well have been black and blue.
And no one’s reputation was tarnished more than the Brazilian, Allan.
The midfielder had a terrible afternoon. He was on the receiving end of a rocket from his skipper for kicking the ball out of play because Bernardo had claimed an injury – and kicked the ball against his own shins to concede a corner in the build-up to Manchester City’s overturned penalty, effectively assisted Rodri for his goal with a scuffed clearance, was on the receiving end of a rocket from his skipper for kicking the ball out of play because Bernardo had claimed an injury – and kicked the

So there’s quite a range.
Especially when you consider that Abdoulaye Doucoure was Everton’s second most error-prone player (77 errors or an error every 9.35 minutes) and Andros Townsend was third (88 and 11.03 minutes), both of whom were unquestionably two of Everton’s standout players this season.
It’s the same all across the place. Take a look at the following list. Isn’t that Conor Gallagher? Surely. “The summary has come to an end.”
