Everton midfielder, Allan Marques Loureiro, commonly known as Allan managed to complete just one pass in the Merseyside Derby on Sunday according to Skysports.
The Brazilian midfielder, who joined Everton from Napoli for a reported fee of £21.7 million in 2020, attempted five passes in total but could only complete one in 73 minutes.
Everton going into the game only had one win away throughout the whole of the current Premier League season.
Frank Lampard’s side set up defensively and planned to counter attack the home-side with the likes of Anthony Gordon and Richarlison on a regular basis.
Liverpool dominated the game and that resulted in Everton recording the second-lowest possession in Premier League history [17.25 per cent] on Sunday, and in total, the Toffees completed 93 passes compared to Liverpool’s 700.
Former Liverpool and Scottish player, Graeme Souness described Everton’s performance as not wanting to play football. British football commentator, Peter Drury also described the game as “football vs. anti-football”.
Lampard believed his side should have been awarded a penalty when Anthony Gordon appeared to have been knocked down by Joel Matip as the two chased down a ball with the game goalless at Anfield.
“I’m not sure how clear-cut it was, but the referee was quick to whip out a yellow card when the little stuff was going off in the middle of the pitch.
“I think if you look back at that with VAR there’s some questionable things going on with that too. Maybe that’s to be expected when you come here Anfield.” The former Chelsea coach conceded.
