Everton's sorry start to the season continued as David Moyes' side crashed out of their second cup competition in the space of eight days losing 4-3 on aggregate at Standard Liege.

After being dumped out of the Carling Cup last Wednesday by Blackburn, Everton's UEFA Cup hopes have also now been crushed at the first hurdle with a 2-1 defeat in Liege.

A far-post tap-in from Axel Witsel sparked the defeat, and although Phil Jagielka gave the Toffees hope, Milan Jovanovic grabbed the winner from the spot after being bundled over by Leighton Baines.
