Everton fans lament former target Andriy Yarmolenko coming back to haunt them


A former target of Everton

Everton fans were rolling their eyes as West Ham scored not one but two goals against them.

Of course, going two down isn’t ever going to be ideal – but this was particularly bad.

That’s because the Toffees were heavily linked with Andriy Yarmolenko, the goalscorer of both goals.

It had been thought Yarmolenko was set to join them in a £15 million deal, before he joined the Hammers instead.

Everton had a long standing interest in the BVB player, and had even made enquiries into buying him as far back as 2015.

A great West Ham debut

It was the perfect debut for Yarmolenko, and West Ham fans were loving it.

Of course, Yarmolenko has a history of doing well against them, and caused huge issues for Everton in their Europa League campaign back in 2014/15.

Despite that, Everton were handed hope at the end of the first half.

They managed to score a consolation goal through Gylfi Sigurdsson, meaning a good second half performance could still see them come away with a point or more.
