Everton are nothing if not consistent this season. Consistently bad that is. The heady days of the transfer window and the opening day win over Stoke City are now long gone, and reality has come back to bite the team with utter vengeance.
The Blues were soundly beaten 3-0 away at Atalanta, putting in a third straight limp performance more befitting of relegation contenders than Europa League contestants.
Ronald Koeman will need to have a long hard think about how to line up all his players, because the whole team right now is nowhere near the sum of individual parts in this very expensively-assembled squad.
The worst part is that rotating players out of this formation made no change whatsoever, and if the Toffees play like this on Sunday at Manchester United, we will only leave with another half dozen goals conceded.
