Everton manager Marco Silva believed Alex Iwobi and his teammates deserves better than what they got from their trip to Villa Park in Friday night English premier league clash.
The Toffees suffered their first loss of the season in the hand of the newly promoted Aston Villa and missed chance to go on top of the league, with other teams yet to play.
Goals from Club record signing Wesley Moraes Ferreira da Silva in the 21st minutes and Ahmed El Ghazi in the final minute of the additional time condemned Everton to back to back defeat at the Villa Park.
Silva who introduced Iwobi in the second half and saw him hit the woodwork with eight minutes to the end of the game , however said his players were let down by their lack of concentrations in crucial time if the game , but believed they deserved better than a defeat from the game.
“We dominated early on, created some half chances, and after the first time they got in our box they scored. Our players were aware about the fast free-kicks, we planned it, they knew, and our focus was not there at that moment.”
“After that our alignment was not the best. We should follow the player, but even after that we had a clear chance with Calvert-Lewin, they cleared it off the line. In the second half we changed some things, but we still dominated.”
“They played with nine players trying to stop us, but even when we went 4-4-2 we created enough chances to change the result for us. We didn’t deserve to lose in my opinion – we dominated the game, created more chances but we didn’t score and then you can’t win matches.” Silva said.
Everton have picked four points out of possible so far in the league this season and will have a chance to return to winning ways when the host Wolverhampton Wanderers next Sunday.
