Allan's abysmal stats from Everton's defeat to Liverpool revealed including just ONE successful pass… from kick-off

ALLAN completed just ONE pass in the Merseyside derby – and that came from kick-off.

The Everton holding midfielder played 73 minutes at Anfield.


But from his five attempted passes, just one successfully found a team-mate.

And stats show it was the very first touch of the match.

Allan got the game underway from the centre-spot after Stuart Attwell's whistle.

The other four passes he tried failed to reach another man in blue – while Demarai Gray restarted the action after Andy Robertson's 62nd-minute opener.

It meant Allan, 31, did not make a single forward pass or a pass in the Liverpool half.

Elsewhere, he won one of his four duals and secured just one tackle.

The Everton midfielder lost the ball five times and made six clearances.

And to round it off, he picked up a yellow card before being replaced by Dele Alli for the final 17 minutes.

Frank Lampard's side managed to frustrate Liverpool for an hour – and could easily have had a penalty and be up against ten men after Sadio Mane slapped Allan and appeared to gouge at Mason Holgate's eye.

But Divock Origi's introduction inspired a 2-0 win for title-chasing Liverpool.

The Toffees had just 18 per cent possession – the second-lowest total in Premier League history – one shot on target and completed just 93 accurate passes.

Allan's opposite No6, Thiago, completed 119 of his 121 passes.
