Everton suffered a crushing blow in their chase for Champions League football, slipping to a 2-0 defeat away at Southampton.

The Toffees began in calamitous fashion, gifting their hosts a goal with barely a minute on the clock.

Rickie Lambert's teasing cross seemed to flummox Antolin Alcaraz, who diverted the ball past a hapless Tim Howard.

Two goals conceded and both without a Southampton player even shooting—the Toffees never recovered and slumped to just their seventh league defeat of the season.

Here's a look at some Everton-related talking points to emerge from this loss.
