Skrtel for Downing? Seems confusing, if Downing is hurt surely Assaidi is the man, hope the arms ok for Agger

Not sure why Rodgers brought in assaidi if he doesn't rate him. Do scouts have different ideas?

Guess we brought Skrtel on for a bit of set piece usage. Everyone else is shit at them. At both ends

Think it may also be the main focus of Moyes tactics and tbh it may work for Everton. Our back line always has a mistake in it, all they need to do is keep it tight at the back. Which they have done...

He might just want some extra ariel presence for offensive and defensive corners.

Borini does get in to positions but...just doesn't have any pace. Pity really

I just wasn't expecting him to go 532 since a draw is as bad as a loss in the context of finishing above Everton this season. Just have to hope Assaidi can improve and try and get into the team even as a backup because at the moment he's just using up a space on the bench.

Enrique has worked very hard but little finesse in him. Frustrating

Kind of symptomatic of elements of our squad really.

Played a little like Tottenham did yesterday, hardworking but lacking cutting edge, but they had a match winner, not sure we do today. Such is the difference between 3rd-4th and 7th

Also not sure what the point of Assaidi actually is if the manager can't trust him to come off the bench for an so so Downing

Next year we really do need people on the bench we can use

Sturridge looks like he's ready for bed. We really need an impact player....who is on the bench?
