When Marco Silva was asked to assess the state of his squad after the close of the transfer window it was more about what he didn’t say.

Everton signed three midfield players in the summer (including Gomes) and yet rotten luck sees them with a resurgent Tom Davies, a fragile Morgan Schneiderlin and Delph, who has injury concerns, as senior players available to Silva.

There is talent and potential in Silva's squad but they have, for a variety of reasons, struggled.

“At this moment our squad is deeper but you have to look at the general picture,” he said But what about it being stronger?

The depth Silva thought he had has quickly been picked apart in key areas of the pitch.

Mercifully, the knee injury picked up by Yerry Mina only meant he missed one league game but Everton's centre-back options are as perilously thin as their midfield options.

Nobody could foresee, or was predicting, such an obliteration of his options but it is clearer with each day as to why Silva asked the club to make a late move for Abdoulaye Doucoure.
