Everton slipped to a third straight Premier League defeat yesterday.
The Toffees were beaten 3-1 by Manchester United at Goodison Park, leaving Carlo Ancelotti with much to ponder over the interantional break.
The team got off to a good start in the Saturday lunch time kick-off, with Brazilian Bernard putting the hosts ahead.
United then kicked into gear, with the brilliant Bruno Fernandes scoring twice before setting up Edinson Cavani for his first Red Devils goal in injury time.
It is the first time in 14 years that Ancelotti has lost three straight league games, and victory against Fulham after the international break will be vital.
A number of players took to their social media after the game, including Everton goalscorer Bernard.
The 28-year-old was pleased for his first Premier League goal of the season, which was a good finish through Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s legs into the corner, but accepted the team could have done more.
He wrote: “Happy to be among the eleven again and to score but we deserved and could have done more. Head up, we will have time to think, work and return to victories.”
£120,000-a-week star Bernard (Spotrac) has been on the periphery this term, and yesterday was only his fifth appearance in 2020/21 in all competitions, and first Premier League start.
He was in for the suspended Richarlison, who is likely to replace his fellow countryman against Fulham after the international break.
Several Everton players responded to Bernard’s Instagram post, including Anthony Gordon, Allan and Lucas Digne:
