It was a dark day for Geordies in 2009 and Everton fans could face something similar if their side don’t start scoring

“That Newcastle team that lost Alan Smith, Nicky Butt, Kevin Nolan, that team lost great players.

“They need a win as soon as possible, their next game they need three points.

“Tough games, no game is easy in the Premier League. Watford probably thought on Friday night: ‘Yes, this is a game where we will have our clean sheet, we beat Norwich and we go up the table’, no, you lose 3-0.

“There are no more guaranteed wins in this league and if I’m an Everton fan I’m nervous.

Everton still have some fantastic players and as the old saying goes in football, form is temporary, class is permanent

“They need Richarlison to start scoring goals, Calvert-Lewin, they need him up to speed, they need Demarai Gray and Townsend scoring, Doucoure.
