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.
