Under-23s edged by Sunderland

13 September  2 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton's Under-23s were in Premier League 2 action at Goodison Park this evening against Sunderland but lost 1-0.

Joel Robles saw his first action of the season after being selected in goal, while Tom Davies, a second-half substitute for the senior side against the Black Cats last night, was also in the side along with Mason Holgate and new signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

George Brady's second-half goal for the visitors proved to be the difference, however.

Everton U23: Joel, Kenny (c), Robinson, Davies, Connolly, Holgate, Charsley (Henen, 68), Walsh (Jones, 83), Dyson (Sambou, 77), Calvert-Lewin. Dowell. 
Subs: Hewelt, Evans

The Young Blues were a bit unlucky to lose but credit to Sunderland for sticking to their task when little was going well for them other than Everton’s inability to put the ball in the net. Had the real Liam Walsh showed up then I think we would have won but this was the least effective game I’ve seen him have for Everton.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked to have a bit about him. Built like a beanpole, he has skill with the ball at his feet and has pace and played well alongside Calum Dyson who also showed well.

The goal came from a free-kick on the left touchline which was curled towards goal and Robles came for it and got there just after a Sunderland player’s head and the ball sailed into an unguarded goal.
