Everton defender James Tarkowski said it was “the most embarrassed I have felt as an individual” after the game.

The Blues, who were really poor defensively, allowed Chelsea to take the lead with their first attack and never recovered thereafter.

“It shows where we are at today, we can only apologise to the fans who supported us,” said Tarkowski. “It is on the players. It is not on the manager and the staff.

“No excuses on our behalf – we need to brush ourselves down as we have a big few weeks coming up. We conceded six goals and you should feel embarrassed.”

The Toffees had gone close themselves when it was still goalless but Beto, in for the injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin, could not divert Seamus Coleman’s low cross on target when just a few yards out.

Beto also had a headed goal disallowed for offside with his side 3-0 down in the first half.

Everton’s loss will sting fans even more when coupled with their latest two-point deduction which was announced on Monday, 8 April.

Hours before kick-off the Premier League said the club’s appeal will be heard “urgently”.

Defeat leaves Sean Dyche’s side in a precarious position especially with games against Liverpool and Arsenal to come before the end of the season.

They host Nottingham Forest in their next league match on Sunday.
