Premier League flop knocks Everton out of Europe by start of November

Memphis Depay was instrumental as the Toffees' torrid season continued

This season just isn’t going to plan for Everton.

The campaign is barely three months old and not only are they without a manager, they’re now out of Europe too.

Ronald Koeman was given his marching orders last week after a truly disastrous set of results, all after forking out over £150m on new players in the summer.

David Unsworth has taken caretaker charge while the board seek a permanent replacement for the Dutchman, but things aren’t getting any better for the ex-Toffees left back.

Following a 2-0 defeat at Leicester at the weekend, Everton’s Europa League campaign was emphatically ended by Lyon on Thursday night after just four games.

A number of ex-Premier League players helped Lyon to a comfortable 3-0 win in France, with Bertrand Traore and Rafael both starring.

But the real hero was Manchester United flop Memphis Depay, who produced a man of the match display to leave the Toffees players trailing in his wake.

Depay firstly set up Houssem Aouar for Lyon’s second of the night before scoring himself with a fine header in the dying moments.

The mercurial Dutchman has begun to prove people wrong after a terrible spell in England at Old Trafford.

Depay has already racked up seven goals and four assists for the Ligue 1 giants this season in all competitions.

It’s fair to say the Everton defence had absolutely no answer to him tonight.
