Everton surges out of relegation zone with 3-0 victory, Doucoure shines under Dyche's management

Posted : 08 December 2023

Everton's manager, Sean Dyche, praised Abdoulaye Doucoure for his significant impact on the team's transformation as they climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone with a 3-0 victory over Newcastle, despite a 10-point deduction. Doucoure, previously discarded by former manager Frank Lampard, scored a crucial goal last season that secured Everton's survival and has since become a key player under Dyche. With goals from Dwight McNeil and Beto, Doucoure's contribution helped Everton secure three points in the final 11 minutes of the match, moving them a point clear of the bottom three.


Dyche acknowledged Doucoure as a "shining light" and emphasized the different managerial perspectives on players. Despite the 10-point deduction, Dyche expressed pride in Everton's form this season, highlighting the team's dedication and connection with the fans. The atmosphere at Goodison Park reflected the commitment of the players, and Dyche credited the fans for supporting a group of individuals giving their all on the pitch. Without the points deduction, Everton would find themselves in the top half of the table.


Newcastle, facing an injury crisis, struggled in the latter stages of the game, and Kieran Trippier's unusual errors played a role in their defeat. Trippier's mistakes led to goals from McNeil and Doucoure. Despite the setback, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe praised Trippier's overall impact on the team, considering him a catalyst for the club's progress. With challenging fixtures ahead, including a UEFA Champions League clash against AC Milan and a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Chelsea, Howe emphasized the need for his team to reflect on their performance and take ownership to improve.
