The Numbers Behind Everton's Drop in Form

“I think there are more serious problems in the world, than making a big story out of a #ChristmasTree” - tweeted Everton manager Ronald Koeman a few days before his team were going to host Manchester United at Goodison Park. It was a response to being slammed on Twitter for the red-colored (or Liverpool themed) Christmas tree that Mrs. Koeman had decorated.
