Allardyce blasts his Everton players for lack of professionalism

Allardyce blasts his Everton players for lack of professionalism

Everton were beaten 4-0 by Spurs at Wembley yesterday, and Allardyce questioned his players' lack of professionalism after the contest.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce has given his response to allegations that defender Mason Holgate sent homophobic tweets more than five years ago.

"We were okay first half and looked comfortable but the second goal went in, if it's offside then that's obviously a killer", he told BT Sport.

Singling out Jordan Pickford as the sole reason why Everton weren't beaten by more, he is convinced that much work is ahead of him as he seeks to instill Everton with a greater level of "professionalism".

"When I say that, I mean you have to make sure you defend even better against a Tottenham side 2-0 up and not relinquish that defensive responsibility". It's out of order.

The former Southampton player, who was brought to Everton by former boss Ronald Koeman, has been playing out of position due to the large number of injuries the club are now coping with, however, numerous Toffees faithful do not want to see him play again. I've got to cut it out, starting tomorrow. Tottenham can beat anybody by a lot of goals but they should have had to work a lot harder than they did. If you can play like that at Liverpool and just at the death get beat, surely you can come here to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result.

"After having a wonderful, wonderful start, we are back on risky ground with our results".
