Paul Lambert says Stoke deserved more from Everton defeat

Everton won against Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Stoke played around an hour with a man disadvantage as they lost 2-1 to Everton thanks to a late victor by Turkey worldwide Cenk Tosun, who picked up a brace on the day.

Stoke, who had Charlie Adam sent off on the half hour, quickly equalised through Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, yet parity only lasted seven minutes as Tosun returned to net the victor and heap more pressure on a home side stuck in the Premier League relegation zone with only seven games to play.

Stoke substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting equalised on 77 minutes, poking the ball home from a free-kick.

Stoke remained three points below the safety zone and with games against Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool next month their 10-year residence in the top flight is in peril.




Lambert's annoyance with the officials was born out of the first of Tosun's goals, which the Stoke boss felt should have been picked up as offside.

It was Tosun who was in the right place at the right time to break the deadlock, and after Paul Lambert's men had levelled up proceedings, the Turk was on the spot again to seal the win and round off what was a very good performance from him.

Choupo-Moting was only on the pitch seven minutes, coming on in the 72nd minute, scoring the equaliser and then hobbling off.

"I thought the first goal was offside".

"I think the quality of the finish caught everyone out, including the goalkeeper, but it was very hard today to put any quality together because of the wind and snow". "I've let the whole squad down", he said. Allardyce said that he had no doubts about the striker's ability in front of goal despite his slow start. I think we deserved at least a point.
