We’ve got nothing but love for Everton full-back Seamus Coleman.
After all, the Irishman is one of the finest right-backs in the Premier League, but he had a rather horrible couple of minutes against Watford this evening.
All was going well for the Toffees in their Monday night clash with Watford.
They went 1-0 up after just 15 minutes thanks to Brazilian whippersnapper Richarlison, who capped-off a fine counter-attacking move with a tasty first-time shot.
But things very quickly turned sour for them after the hour-mark, as Watford began to chase the equaliser.
Roberto Pereyra and substitute Gerard Deulofeu were driving the Hornets forward from the midfield, and pair were on hand to force the leveller courtesy of a comedy clanger from the unfortunate Coleman.
On the 63rd minute, Deulofeu slid the ball into Pereyra to hit a low cross into the box to Kiko Femenia, whose powerful strike ricocheted off the post, hit the unknowing Coleman and rolled into the back of the net.
And then, just two minutes later, Coleman was involved in Watford’s second goal, failing to fend off the powerful run and header from Abdoulaye Doucoure.
It was Pereyra again who was part of the build-up, charging down the byline to whip his cross into the box for Doucoure to rise above the defender and head home.
Luckily for him, fellow full-back Lucas Digne rescued a point for Marco Silva’s side with a late-as-they-come free-kick.
A rather well-earned point, we think.

- Who really is the best player outside the Premier League’s ‘top six’?
- Aymeric Laporte’s first Premier League defeat is good news for… Jens Lehmann
