Eamon Dunphy Slams 'Rubbish' Everton Signings After Trouncing

Liverpool v Everton was definitely full of entertainment on Wednesday night, provided you weren't an Everton fan. The Toffee's miserable start to the season was compounded by a 5-2 drubbing that was arguably made all the worse because of the players' ability to rescue false hope with two first half goals that appeared as if they could spark a comeback.

It's the hope that kills you.

Back in the Premier Sports studio, the old band was still back together, minus Mr Giles, and Eamon Dunphy pulled no punches.

"Everton bought a load of rubbish in the summer. Expensive rubbish," he told Ivan Yates.

"They're not playing for the club. Not playing for their pride. Not playing for themselves. And Liverpool dispatched them quite ruthlessly really, without being at their best."

Liverpool's first half goals were something special, particularly Divock Origi's effort to put them 4-1 up at the time. There is an argument that this should be goal of the season really. Everything about it is perfect; the pass from the Lovern, the touch to bring it down, the deft finish. It was poetry in motion.

Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho had an unhappy return to Old Trafford with Spurs losing 2-1 and speaking after the game he felt the home side were well worth their victoy.

The win for United will no doubt ease Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's woes but things don't exactly get an easier with the Manchester Derby on the horizon this weekend.
