Everton could not overcome a lethargic first half and slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea City, in the process giving the Welsh side their first ever win over the Toffees in the League. The Blues had multiple chances to equalize in a second half they dominated, but the inability to put together a complete 90-minute performance once again tripped them up.
Of course, it wouldn't be an Everton game without some refereeing controversies. Two incidents that referee Anthony Taylor chose to ignore swung the game around - a Swansea handball in midfield sprung the visitors on the break to score the winning goal, while another Swansea handball in the area would have given the Blues a penalty in the second half.
It's time to be realistic - it will take a Herculean effort for the remainder of the season for Everton to even find a spot in the top half of the Premier League, and Europe via the top six is a forgotten dream.
Here are the highlights of yesterday's game -
