Sean Dyche sends message to Everton fans after loss v Chelsea

Everton suffered a 6-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, and Sean Dyche has described it as a “horrible” defeat and certainly the worst of his career. 

The Toffees went into the game with high expectations to prove a point after they were docked two more points, totalling eight this season, for breaching the PSR rules.

However, within the first 30 minutes, it turned into a horror night for them. By halftime, they conceded four goals, and the away fans had left the ground with loud boos ringing across the stadium.

Dyche made changes at halftime, but the damage was done already. The Toffees boss was unhappy with the manner in which his side defended. Everton have struggled badly scoring goals this season but they have been superb at the back, so it has come as a huge shock that they were so fragile at the back.

After the game, Dyche was asked to send a message to the Everton fans who had travelled to watch it.

The Toffees boss said: “They have been terrific, there is no question on that, never question the Everton supporters – that will never happen because they are here again, they travel all over the place, all I can do is accept responsibility for a performance that is absolutely miles away from what I expect from this group of players.”

Home games are key for Everton

Jamie Carragher was spot on when he said that the club has been going through the same cycle for years, and that is hurting the fans.

A sea-change approach is needed, but at the moment, staying in the Premier League remains the top priority.

The Toffees have picked up just one win in 2024, but they need to get more wins to secure their Premier League status. They face Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Luton and Sheffield United and these are the games they have to pick up three points.
