Former Premier League midfielder Jermaine Jenas has slammed Everton for their 'sloppy' display in the defeat at Bournemouth on Sunday.

The Blues suffered a 3-1 loss against the Cherries after an under-par performance with Marco Silva's side failing to find their rhythm and looking shaky at the back.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2, Jenas didn't hold back on his views after the abject defeat.

He explained: "In the first-half, they were in the game without being at their best.

"It was in the second half when they seemed to completely fall apart. A lack of cohesion, sloppy play and Marco Silva was right, it was all in vital moments."

Jenas wasn't impressed with the defending for Callum Wilson's second goal as he beat some static defending to fire home.

"They seemed to just get worse as the game went progressed," he said. "It is a shocking goal to concede, it's just a long ball but look at Keane, Mina and Delph all ball-watching.

"Who's looking at Wilson and saying he is a danger? Why is Mina not saying to Keane drop back in? No-one has noticed the danger and that is a goal you almost see at academy level."

Everton are now without a win on the road in the Premier League this season and the former midfielder is concerned about their form away from Goodison Park.

He added:"It's been shocking away from home. I think one point on the road from Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. That was their first goal away from home as well.

"They were a team who people were talking along with Leicester and Wolves who could be breaking into that top six. They look like they have a lot of work to do."

Fellow Match of the Day pundit Martin Keown agreed, adding: "On Merseyside, that will not do. Particularly Liverpool doing what they are doing.

"Evertonians will not be happy with this performance and Marco Silva is under huge pressure. The owners have put in an absolute fortune and they are not seeing enough results."
