Bournemouth 3-0 Everton: Marcus Tavernier, Kieffer Moore and Jaidon Anthony score for the Cherries

As the booing rained down and an ashen Frank Lampard held up his hands apologetically, Alex Iwobi handed his shirt to a supporter as a gesture of goodwill. It was thrown back to him.

Everton fans had traveled a total of 1,000 miles in the space of five days to see their side lose 7-1 to Bournemouth. So their frustration was inevitable.

Still, it was a striking image. Stewards and police hastily formed a cordon, a banner was unfurled, players protested – some angry, some sheepish but all in disbelief.

Everton spirals and Frank Lampard is in serious danger of paying the price. His side was humiliated here in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday and also thoroughly outclassed on Saturday,

Marcus Tavernier, Kieffer Moore and Jaidon Anthony struck when the Cherries rioted in what might be caretaker Gary O’Neil’s last game.

It’s now one win in eight for Lampard, whose side have scored just 11 goals all season but seem somehow more toothless with each passing game.

Everton are currently miserable and in serious danger of repeating the relegation battle they endured over the past campaign.

They’re just one point above the bottom three and won’t move for a while – this rapid decline comes at a time when, with a month-long break before the World Cup approaching, it’s more tempting than ever to switch managers.

Chairman Bill Kenwright attended Vitality Stadium and whether he has sharpened his management ax remains to be seen. In reality, Lampard could have no complaints if he’s for the chop.

“It was a bad performance, a bad result,” Lampard said afterwards. “Not good enough for Everton. There was nothing wrong today.’

About the angry scenes at full-time, he thought, “The fans have a right to be disappointed. They have come down twice this week and have seen poor performance. They can express their opinion, their opinion is correct.

“I think there was a bit of a misunderstanding (with Iwobi). Alex had a few friends he was concerned about who were front and center with the fans.

“It was important that the players went to the fans. They are not bad boys, they are disappointed. It’s not a fun moment, but sometimes you have to suck it up and (respect) the fact that they’re there. The rest was pure emotion and that’s understandable.’

If this match was painful for those with Everton conviction, Gareth Southgate would not have been happy with what he saw either.

Jordan Pickford was responsible for Bournemouth’s opener, who spilled an easy flyout under little pressure straight to Tavernier, who sprang forward. It was the kind of howl that has largely wiped him out of his game in recent years, but also the kind that could cost England dearly if repeated in Qatar.

“You’re like an Aaron Ramsdale,” chanted the home fans behind the goal, in honor of their former goalkeeper, to rub Pickford into the wounds with salt.

It didn’t take long for Pickford to pluck the ball from his net again, but this time he was flawless. After a good save from Philip Billing, Tavernier headed the ball towards goal and Moore headed in again.

However, the goal was shrouded in controversy, as Everton defender James Tarkowski was on the ground in front of goal the entire time after getting heads with Solanke. Everton players were furious that referee Craig Pawson did not stop the game and Lampard was adamant that the goal should not have been allowed.

“The referee should reject the second,” he said. “The game stops if there is a head injury. Our reaction after that was not good, but it is difficult to get behind from 2-0.’

A weak effort from Alex Iwobi was all Everton could muster in a terrible first half. They almost got a life preserver when Lewis Cook thundered on Amadou Onana about half-time, but VAR Tony Harrington thought the tackle was unworthy of a red card.

If Lampard laughed at his players during halftime, it had no effect. Bournemouth came close to making it 3-0 twice, first with a header from Billing that went just wide and then a shot from Tavernier that stopped Pickford well.

The goal was on the way and substitute Anthony made it just two minutes after he came on. Completely unmarked after Cook scored a free kick, the goal was at his mercy and he headed home.

Solanke found the net again shortly afterwards, but the linesman’s flag saved Lampard even more embarrassment.

As for Bournemouth, who has climbed to 13th place, it looks like Marcelo Bielsa is ready to take the reins from caretaker Gary O’Neil.

If so, O’Neil – who said Bielsa would do “great work” on the South Coast if appointed – can look back on a good job in his three-month leadership. A feeling that Lampard struggles with.
