Joey Barton launches shocking attack on Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth

Joey Barton launches shocking attack on Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth”

The duo are among several changes to the side which were beaten 5-2 by Arsenal in the last league outing seven days ago as caretaker manager David Unsworth has also opted to drop fellow big-money signing Michael Keane from the squad completely.

"I watched him waddling onto the coach". "We gave them a two-goal start - in the first half we didn't perform".

Speaking to Sky Sports, Unsworth said: "The second half was much better".

"For whatever reason it didn't work so you've got to be reactive and show the players that you're on the front foot". I wanted to be courageous and positive in the first half.

Everton face Olympique Lyon in the Europa League on Thursday in search of their first win knowing that defeat will probably put them out of the competition while they will host Watford next Sunday in the Premier League.

Asked whether Everton's expensive new signings were struggling to cope with the pressure of life at Goodison Park, Unsworth said: "The players don't set the price tag but obviously there's a lot of new players in the team".

"The best tactics I thought was with a diamond and two strikers".

Unsworth made changes at half time with Oumar Niasse and Beni Baningime coming on for Aaron Lennon and Kevin Mirallas but it was too little and Leicester held on despite Everton pressure.

"The performance level at Chelsea was terrific".

"I'll pick a team based on who I think deserves to play, not reputation".
