Unsurprisingly, Eamon Dunphy didn’t mince his words on his return to TV punditry as he ran the rule over Everton’s performance in which they fell to a 5-2 defeat to Merseyside rivals Liverpool at Anfield.
A brace from Divock Origi and goals from Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum gave the Premier League leaders a comfortable, straight-forward victory over a disappointing Everton side who continue to struggle this season.
Despite significant investment in their squad this summer, Marco Silva’s side find themselves in the relegation zone with just four wins to their name so far this season.
Dunphy, alongside Liam Brady on Premier Sports’ Premier League coverage, was typically cutting in his criticism.
“Everton bought a load of rubbish in the summer, expensive rubbish. They’re not playing for the club, they’re not playing for pride, they’re not playing for themselves and Liverpool dispatched them, quite conclusively really without being at their best, particularly defensively.
“Liverpool didn’t play well at the back but some of the forward play was scintillating.”
