Everton fall to Aston Villa 2-0. Here’s how it happened. [RBM]
Watch the highlights below.
“[The result] was harsh on a performance level. I think the fans played their part in the performance, and I think that’s important moving forwards...there’s a lot of good work on the training ground, and there’s a lot of commitment being shown. The work ethic’s been great, and the taking in of new information. As I’ve said, we’ve crammed a lot in to a short space of time. The commitment has been great. We have to stick with that, and then, add in the big moments, of course,” says Sean Dyche. [EFC]

Tom Cannon scores his first goal for loan side Preston North End, and it was a lovely goal at that (clip below at 1:40).
“I’m glad it went in, I thought with my luck it’d bounce off the post and not go in but it was nice when I saw it hit the back of the net. To be fair, I wasn’t overly focusing on scoring, I was more thinking about playing well because sometimes you can overthink it and beat yourself up about it...it’s nice to start every game, I had a good few chats with the manager before I came here so for him to trust me and believe in me to play and start,” says Cannon.

It looks like Everton still have Coventry City striker Viktor Gyökeres on their radar. [Football Insider]
Viktor Gyokeres now has 19 goals + assists in the Championship this season. Only Chuba Akpom (20) has more.— Statman Dave (@StatmanDave) February 25, 2023

Sean Dyche has won two of four games as Everton manager with goals scored by a central defender & a full-back. Not signing a striker in summer/January amounts to negligence from the owner, board & director of football Kevin Thelwell. It might be the decision that sends them down.— Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) February 25, 2023
