Gareth Southgate must be looking at the match highlights and shaking his head. Two defenders inside the six and Pickford tries to play it out of the back?

Photo by Alex Livesey/ An almost flawless win from Everton. But what did the numbers tell us? It was almost perfect. Almost. Everton are into the fourth round of the EFL Cup, but what did the numbers tell us about this 5-2 win over Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town?

The Blues absolutely dominated possession (79%), but unlike in the past, this was purposeful possession with a great intensity to the play. The Blues also had...
