Mina was rash with his decision making, his play on the ball was erratic and, when Everton needed to bring on Gylfi Sigurdsson to try and make some magic happen, Mina was the man pulled from action.

It was another inconsistent display from the 23-year-old. Everton fans need him to start producing more reliable displays soon if they are to continue being happy with their investment…
