Everton manager Sean Dyche has revealed what happened in the Everton dressing room following last night’s 4-1 defeat at home to Newcastle United.

The Toffees’ boss stated that some of his players were doing the post-match talking and that he ‘left them to it’, though he did not reveal exactly which individuals spoke up.

Indeed, Everton lacked leadership on the pitch last night so it would be very interesting to discover which players shared their thoughts on the dismal display.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, the Everton boss said: “A couple of the players were talking, I wasn’t in there very long…they shared a couple of thoughts about the performance and what should change.”

When pressed on whether that had been a deliberate approach, he added: “I could just hear them from my room so I left them to it and then I went in and summarised some of the stuff I heard.”

Newcastle highlighted that Dyche can’t rely on Everton home form for PL security

Eddie Howe’s side took a first half lead courtesy of Callum Wilson, but Everton were three goals down with 15 minutes remaining as Wilson bagged his second after Joelinton doubled Newcastle’s lead.

A goal direct from a Dwight McNeil corner in the 80th minute gave Everton a moment of brief hope that an unlikely comeback could be on the cards, but Newcastle made it 4-1 straight from the kick-off as Jacob Murphy finished off an Alexander Isak run.

A win for Everton would have taken the Blues to 16th in the table, but Sean Dyche’s side remain second from bottom and face an enormous game at Leicester City on Monday evening, as the fight to avoid relegation marches on.
