Alarm bells sound as Stoke loss slides Everton further down the table

Everton crashed to their third home loss of the season against Stoke.

It is the season of goodwill and Everton are revelling in presenting results to the opposition. On this occasion, an increasingly agitated Goodison Park saw Stoke benefit from the home side's generosity and escape with a 1-0 win.

Struggling Everton's turnaround could start against Stoke

Everton manager Roberto Martinez expects a tough Stoke City at Goodison Park as his side tries to recover from their 3-0 defeat to Southampton.

What a difference a year makes. Without dissecting the how and why of it, the raw statistics paint a much-changed picture.

Roberto Martinez deserves criticism for wretched Everton's dire form

Romelu Lukaku put one in his own net in Everton's dire 3-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

Once Southampton extinguished Everton's early promise with the opening goal, there was little hope for the Toffees on their trip to the south coast on Saturday. The home side finished good value for their 3-0 win and Roberto Martinez has plenty of questions to answer as he faces up to the toughest period of his Everton career.

Last season, two own goals on this ground ended the Toffees' Champions League hopes. Another goal by an Everton player had the Saints en route to an easy three points this...
