Good question.

If you were to grade EFC so far, what would you grade them? And why would you give them the grade you decided to put.

What we learned

I had a look at what we learned yesterday after Everton’s draw at Sunderland.

Was it a case of too many cooks for the Blues? Do they need substance to match their style?

And, most importantly, was it a point gained?

Greg’s verdict

Greg O’Keeffe was left feeling nostalgic on Saturday after the Blues drew with Sunderland – the result left him wishing for the heady days of, well, last season. When the Blues were on a seven-match winning streak.

How they could do with putting together such a streak now, Greg writes.

Everyone is beating everyone. And what’s painfully clear is that simply stringing together a few wins can propel clubs into an envious position in the table. Just ask Alan Pardew.

The problem is that Everton are maddeningly incapable of doing it. Blame it on Europe, blame it on injuries, even point to key men struggling to find form consistently – Romelu Lukaku the chief culprit.

There was no leg break for Gareth Barry, but the midfielder is still facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering damage to his ankle in yesterday’s draw with Sunderland.

“I am happy to confirm that it’s not the broken leg we were worried about,” Martinez said. “There is damage to the ankle which we must assess.

“There is no intent whatsoever from Gomez, it is just unfortunate. It was early on in the game and there was a lot of energy in the play. We knew he was in serious trouble when he went down.”

Leighton Baines says Everton are “desperate” to go on a winning run after a draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light yesterday.

Baines struck the penalty 15 minutes from time to get the Blues level after they fell behind to a Seb Larsson goal. Leighton Baines scores Everton's penalty at Sunderland Leighton Baines scores Everton’s penalty at Sunderland

He said: “We’re relieved in the end because we were behind and got a late goal.

“But we’re also frustrated because the league is so mad at the moment in terms of the results, and we’re desperate to pull ourselves away from that middle zone.

“We feel we’re good enough to have more points than we have so it’s just frustrating we can’t break loose from that pack.

“We feel like we should be higher up but I suppose taking a point is better than coming away with nothing.”
