He honed in on the players involved for Everton’s leveller, insisting they should have done more to prevent Townsend from finding the net.
“When we conceded that counter-attack, we were in control, dominated the game, we conceded from a corner that we had, and there were still four players behind the ball and we should’ve dealt with it,” he said.
“That was the same case against Villareal.”
He also said: “Well part of it was really good, I thought we started with high energy, created some good openings and scored a fantastic goal coming into half-time 1-0 you’re pleased.
“Second half we lacked that cutting edge to get the second which is vital, from a corner that we had we concede five seconds later or whatever so that was the disappointing bit.
“We weren’t too open, we had enough players behind the ball but we didn’t deal with the ball, the tackles when we should have, good goal by them but when they counter from one side the goals going to happen from the other side so we just didn’t regroup and reorganise well enough.”
