Everton suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, with their away-day blues laid bare once again.
The Toffees lost 2-0 to Aston Villa when they visited the newly-promoted side and were held to a goalless draw at Selhurst Park by Crystal Palace during the opening weekend of the season.
The Merseysiders won just thrice away from home in 2017-18, four times in 2016-17 and five times last term, and they clearly must do better if they are to ever realize their top-six dreams.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville thinks he knows why Marco Silva’s side struggle on the road, citing fragility and belief.
Here is his reply during a Q&A session on Twitter when an Everton asked “why is Everton’s away form so bad in contrast to how we play at home?!”:

Silva has a huge conundrum on his hands, and finding a way to solve it will prove crucial to Everton’s hopes of playing European football.
