This is the latest everton news with Alan Shearer not keeping mute over the what everton star did after the loss to Brenford by accusing him.
Everton were defeated 3-2 by Brentford on Sunday afternoon at Goodison Park, with Alan Shearer criticizing Anthony Gordon for his defence.
An early red card to Jarrad Branthwaite did not assist the Toffees, and Salomon Rondon was also issued his marching orders in the final stages of the game.
Gordon was singled out by Shearer for sleeping at the back, allowing Rico Henry to come rushing in and score the game-winning goal with a header past Jordan Pickford.
Shearer was not impressed with the youthful attacker’s contribution in the second-half defeat, speaking live on Match of the Day 2 on Sunday [15 May].

“Look at Gordon,” he continued, “he’s been one of Everton’s greatest players.”
“He falls asleep, which is a key time for defenders.” They fall asleep, and when they wake up, he’s not awake, he’s not bright, he’s not conscious of what’s going on around him until it’s too late.”
The body language displayed by Gordon alone in this footage is appalling.
The teenage winger can be seen groaning and strolling about aimlessly, oblivious to what is going on around him and on the opposite side of the pitch.
Henry had spun away to celebrate after nodding past Pickford by the time he notices, leaving the winger scratching his head.
It’s difficult to be too harsh on the young star, whose efforts with Richarlison have been one of the few reasons we’ve managed to avoid relegation moving into the last week.
If this is discovered during game analysis, Frank Lampard will not be too severe, but he will need to convey a message to ensure it does not happen again.
Hopefully, there will be no red cards against Crystal Palace, and Gordon will be able to do what he does best at the opposite end of the pitch this time.
