Dominic Calvert-Lewin rescues point for tepid Everton against Huddersfield

Not even the introduction of Ademola Lookman could save this game from instant forgettability. The substitute came closest to conjuring a winning goal in the second half, when his cross was almost touched in by Gylfi Sigurdsson, though that is not to suggest a player on loan at RB Leipzig last season proved a point or confirmed the wisdom of Everton keeping hold of him.The only reason for mentioning Lookman is that the cheer when he took the field was easily the biggest of the second half, which says everything about the mundanity of what went before. Huddersfield were worth their point here, they are well organised defensively and often dangerous when breaking quickly. They can cope with opponents like Everton all day, because Marco Silva’s side seem to have forgotten how to create any danger at all. With even local heroes such as Séamus Coleman and Tom Davies surrendering possession with aimless, unreadable passes the quick, slick football the new manager wants to see was conspicuous by its absence.
