Jermaine Jenas has labelled Everton’s 5-1 loss to Atalanta as a “new low” for David Unsworth and the struggling club this season.
The retired midfielder shared his view on BT Sport following the game, and somberly revealed just how bad he believed Everton were in their Europa League outing and have been this season.
“They’re lacking confidence, there are gaps all over the place, they look like they’re going to conceded every game,” said Jenas before admitting, “it’s a new low for Everton and for David Unsworth this season.”
The Toffees suffered the heavy defeat in the Europa League on Thursday night, with Cardiff City flop Andreas Cornelius even grabbing a brace against them.
Everton, with only one game left, have failed to win any of their Europa League matches, slumping to the bottom of their group with only one point gained.
The 5-1 defeat was not the first heavy loss inflicted on them in this tournament, as they had previously lost 3-0 to Atalanta in their first meeting and lost 3-0 to Lyon.
These losses have contributed to the Toffees having the second worst goal difference in the whole competition with -11.
The Toffees haven’t just struggled in the Europa League, as they find themselves 16th in the Premier League with only 12 points from 12 games.
The poor performances led to Ronald Koeman being sacked on October 23, and despite his sacking being over a month go, Everton have yet to name a permanent replacement.
Unsworth has been acting as caretaker manager, and has only won one of his six games in charge.
