Yerry Mina’s Everton, who at the time had James Rodríguez, passed from heaven to hell in less than a year.
What began as a risky project led by Carlo Ancelotti (today at Real Madrid), is on a derailed train that suffered the terrible driving of Rafa Benítez and that hopes to be miraculously saved under the direction of the historical Frank Lampard.
That salvation was blunted this Sunday, with the fall of the ‘Toffees’ as a local against the newly promoted Brentford (which already assured his salvation on the Premier league).
The team of Minewho is out due to injury, inexplicably fell 2-3, in a game in which he ended up playing with 9 men after the expulsions of Jarrad Branthwaite and the Venezuelan attacker Salomón Rondón.
Christian Eriksen, star signing of Brentford, took command of the game and led his team to victory with two goals in three minutes at game time.

In the 62nd minute, a corner kick taken by the Danish midfielder was finished off at the near post by Yoane Wissa. And in ’64, a cross from Christian Norgaard ended with a header from Rico Henry who beat Jordan Pickford for the third time.
defeat leaves the Everton sixteenth, with two games to play. The next one also at Goodison Park against Crystal Palace. Two points separate him from relegation. Brentford, eleventh, is in the middle of the table.
