Everton’s Winning Record Shattered
LONDON: English Premier League (EPL) leaders Everton failed to maintain their winning record when they lost 2-0 to Southampton just now.
Two goals in the first half through James Ward-Prowse in the 27th minute and Che Adams (m-35) was enough to allow Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men to grab three important points at St Mary’s Stadium thus breaking the record of winning eight games in all The Toffees. .
Carlo Ancelotti’s side tried to bounce back in the second half but received a blow when referee Kevin Friend sent a red card to left-back Lucas Digne for fouling Kyle Walker-Peters in the 72nd minute.
The defeat saw Everton remain the league leaders but only distinguished by the number of goals with defending champions Liverpool who also collected 13 points.
