Everton v Manchester United: what was said?

“The money that Everton have invested, you expect the club to take steps forward,” Leon Osman told talkSPORT.

“To not find the club languishing at the bottom of the Premier League, struggling for points, struggling for form, struggling for any type of performance really, so it is a very worrying time for the club.

“I think that’s been a criticism of this team all season, you look around and wonder who the characters are? Who are the leaders?

“You saw the way Alex Iwobi gave the ball away [in the defeat to West Ham] just as they got back into the game, and Everton, defensively, are so exposed.

“You are already behind in games so you wonder who has the character to get on the ball and try to shake things up.

“And for the majority of this season it has fallen on the shoulders of young Anthony Gordon, which is incredible to say for a guy who has just broken into the team, very young in age, very young in career. [and he’s] carried the fight of such a big club of such a story of characters.
