#2 Poor away record continues for Everton

Marco Silva needs to work on his team's away results
Marco Silva needs to work on his team's away results

Everton had one of the worst away records last season, but still, Sam Allardyce ensured a top half finish for the Toffees solely based on the results at the Goodison Park. Marco Silva replaced Big Sam at the start of the new season with an expectation of improving the away performances.

Silva made his presence felt with the acquisition of several players in the summer. He was determined to take Everton back to where they belonged. The Toffees was impressive at the start of the season with Richarlison the star performer for Everton. They are currently seventh in the league but primarily based on their home record.

On the road, Everton has won just one game so far which is not good enough for a team fighting for a top six finish. Against Liverpool, Silva's side missed a couple of glorious chances to put pressure on the home side which was the case against City as well.

Richarlison should have given the lead in the first half and missed a good chance in the second. Everton needs to take these chances away from home to ensure Europa League football next season.

A sports enthusiast and an avid follower of football. Since childhood I was encouraged to play cricket and in no time it became a hobby. Gradually I found interest in other sports also. Football is in my blood and I love the electrifying ambiance that surrounds it. I often watch the pre and post match analysis of a match and try to learn how to analyze a football game. The thing that intrigues me the most is that there are so many things happening behind the scenes that are oblivious to our naked eyes. The technological advancements that has been made are phenomenal. I like analyzing a game from a statistical point of view. Being a data guy myself , I am firm believer of providing insights through facts and data. Though a game is always unpredictable , analyzing it from different dimensions can provide some very interesting conclusions.
