Ashley Young’s situation is still shrouded in uncertainty.

He’s reminding me of Michael Keane from the previous season. Although Keane seemed to be the one making the blunders that were costing us, his heart and effort were clearly evident. After he emerged from the side, we brought Yerry Mina inside to help us freshen up.

The Young fan base is experiencing the same emotions once more. Despite his extensive knowledge and stellar career, it appears that he is failing the team in terms of decision-making.

For the penalty, he needs to recover quicker. At that point tiredness might’ve set in – I don’t want to blame his age, but it’s not the first time a poor decision has cost us at a crucial time.

Over your career you’ve got to adapt. Young was a winger who has moved back, but the game is fast and furious now. He keeps getting these needless bookings. He keeps getting caught on yellow cards like he did in the derby twice and against United.

It doesn’t matter if you’re 38 or 18, if you’re on a yellow card you’ve got to play a different way.

He was probably lucky not to be sent off again. The referee – who was awful, especially in the first half – could have given him a second yellow card.

Sometimes it takes a big decision from the manager, to realise a player is not on it or needs a break. Because at this moment in time, it seems to be that every opposition is targeting Everton’s right-back area.

Young tends to do well for 60 minutes or so – but these mistakes are costly. Perhaps it’s time to give someone else an opportunity.

Garnacho goals sums up Everton’s luck

The overhead kick was something special, but the Everton players should have been able to shrug it off.

A goal is a goal – it doesn’t count for more when it’s a wondergoal! You’ve just got to get on with it, if a ball bobbles off the pitch and goes in off someone’s backside, it still counts as a goal.

He could try that another 100 times and he wouldn’t get near it!

But it felt like it was one of those days for us. Our chances were getting cleared off the line and hitting the bar – the breaks didn’t go our way.

How a player scores a goal doesn’t really matter all that much. You can probably hold your hands up if it’s one like that. However, given the build-up and how simple it was to get the ball into the area, I don’t think Dyche and the coaching staff would be pleased.

Nevertheless, we can’t be moping around. The supporters and players, in my opinion, responded admirably. It’s a big game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, so that mindset must be present.
