Well that brings an end to another harrowing night for Everton as their season goes from bad to embarrassing. Atalanta are through to the Europa League last 32 after their first win of the season.

We're back this weekend with coverage of the Premier League, including Liverpool vs Chelsea. But until then, it's goodnight.


Full time: Everton 1-5 Atalanta

The team 12th in Serie A and without an away win all season come to Goodison Park and score five times to thrash Everton. Bryan Cristante and Andrea Cornelius netted twice each, while Robin Gosens got the other.

David Unsworth has now lost four of his six games in charge and even as caretaker boss, his position now looks untenable. His chances of getting the job long-term have to be over.


GOAL!: Everton 1-5 Atalanta (Andreas Cornelius)

The Cardiff City failure gets his second from a corner. The Serie A side have taken Everton apart. The wheels came off the Merseysiders.


Three added minutes at Goodison. Not much need for them though.


GOAL! Everton 1-4 Atalanta (Andreas Cornelius)

And 68 seconds later Atalanta make it four. Feeney is way too deep and it allows the visitors to roam to the edge of the penalty area and when Cornellus cuts inside the youngster he finds the net with ease.


GOAL! Everton 1-3 Atalanta (Robin Gosens)

Goal of the night and Atalanta have the win. A corner is cleared to the edge of the penalty area and Robin Gosens sets himself before thrashing the ball in off the post and past Robles. Job done.


OFF THE BAR! Or is it? Michael Keane thrusts a header goalwards which crashes onto the bar and onto the goal-line, but the referee has given a foul against the England man. Showing plenty of fight are Everton.


Sandro looks like a different player and he takes aim from 25 yards, with Etrit Berisha turning the ball over the bar.


The final throw of the dice sees Dominic Calvert-Lewin replace Kevin Mirallas.


Bryan Cristante grabs his second to put Atalanta in control.

GOAL! Everton 1-2 Atalanta (Sandro Ramirez)

Potentially a big moment in Sandro Ramirez's career at Goodison Park. He collects Kevin Mirallas's cross, takes on touch and bangs the ball in the corner. It might not be enough for Everton tonight, but it kick-starts his career with his first goal for his new club.


Morgan Feeney on for his Everton debut for the final 20 minutes. Big night for him, but not many here to see it.


Joel Robles kept Everton in the game with a second half penalty save.

GOAL! Everton 0-2 Atalanta (Bryan Cristante)

Game over here you feel as the Italians double their lead. A corner from the left causes more problems and Cristante out-jumps Williams to head into the net from a yard out.


Davy Klaassen off and Nikola Vlašić is on for the final half an hour or so.


Robles to the rescue again. Hateboer barges Keane off the ball and shoots from a tight angle on the left, which the ex-Wigan 'keeper turns over the bar.


Wayne Rooney tries to inspire an Everton comeback.

How are Atalanta not two up? Robles makes another fine save to keep out Ashley Williams' header from a corner, before Cristante's header is hacked off the line by Kenny. The visitors in complete control here.


Ashley Williams scythes down Bryan Cristante and a penalty is awarded. Alejandro Gómez steps up and Robles saves not only the spot kick-off but the follow-up effort from the forward. Everton get the ball away and those who have bothered to turn up at Goodison cheer the home side getting a second life.




I think we knew it would be bad, but not this bad surely....


Back under way at Goodison Park. No changes at the break.


Half-time: Everton 0-1 Atalanta

Same old story for the Toffees, who have been plucky but they trail at half time. Atalanta took just 12 minutes to open the scoring through Bryan Cristante, though the hosts have had chances since then. Kevin Mirallas and Sandro Ramirez have gone close, while Tom Davies has had one cleared off the line. David Unsworth will be encouraged but the result are not yet on the turn.


And indeed it is. Masiello off and Mattia Caldara is coming on.

Masiello can barely walk off the field such is the agony he is in.
