Alex Iwobi's gift to the travelling Everton fans was thrown back in his face following a 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth.
  • Everton crashed to 3-0 loss
  • Defeat their seventh already this season
  • Everton fans reacted by rejecting Iwobi's shirt

WHAT HAPPENED? Goals from Marcus Tavernier, Kieffer Moore and Jaidon Anthony were enough to down a lacklustre Everton side, a performance which visibly angered the Everton faithful. Supporters refused to accept the shirt offered by Iwobi at the full-time whistle, instead throwing it back onto the pitch at the Vitality Stadium.

WHAT WAS SAID: Frank Lampard played down the incident in his post-match press conference, telling reporters: ''The fans have a right to be disappointed. They have come down here twice this week and seen poor performances. Before that, we were doing okay, and then they see performances they don’t like. When they’re happy after the Palace win and we’re pleased when they give us a welcome… We have to understand they can voice their opinions – and their opinions were right today.

''I think there was a bit of a misunderstanding – Alex had some friends he was concerned about up at the front – there was nothing in that.''
Defeat at Bournemouth was Everton's second Premier League loss on the bounce, and their seventh in the league all season. Frank Lampard's side currently sit in 17th place, just a point off Nottingham Forest in the relegation zone, as pressure continues to build on the ex-England player.

WHAT NEXT FOR EVERTON? After three losses from their last three games in all competitions before the World Cup, Lampard will be hoping to utilise the international break to his advantage. They will look to come back refreshed when they take on Wolves on Boxing Day.
