Before their Merseyside derby defeat to Liverpool, they dropped into the relegation following Burnley’s victory over Wolves.
They then faced their quadruple-chasing rivals at Anfield needing a win to get themselves out of the drop zone.
For an hour, Frank Lampard’s game plan worked a treat.
They were more than happy to concede possession and take their time over every set piece. Liverpool were frustrated.
But the home side finally found their way through in the 62nd-minute as Andy Robertson headed in Mohamed Salah’s cross.
Divock Origi sealed the win late on with his customary goal against Everton.
It was a tough day for Everton summed up by the fact they only had 17% possession over the 90 minutes.
But the worst stat soon emerged after the final whistle involving defensive midfielder, Allan.
That’s because the defensive midfielder completed just one pass during the entire match – and it was from kick-off. And he was on the pitch for 73 minutes.
To make matters worse, Sky Sports have now tweeted out a video of all of his attempted passes throughout the match – plus his one successful one.

Talk about kicking a team while they’re down (not literally down).
Everton are now two points adrift of safety but they do have a game in hand of Burnley in 17th.
However, despite the two results going against his side on Sunday, Lampard insists nothing has changed in terms of their battle to survive.
“It doesn’t change anything for me,” Lampard said. “I expected them [Burnley] to get a result today.
“We’ve got six games to their five to win as many points as we can.
“That’s us and Burnley, you maybe bring Leeds into the equation.
“We can’t get caught up in the game of what everyone else is doing. We need to focus on ourselves.”
