Lyon 3, Everton 0
Everton's woeful start to the season endured another setback tonight when they suffered Europa League elimination in a demoralising defeat at a ruthless Lyon.
The Toffees' fifth consecutive defeat in all competitions, inflicted by second-half goals from Bertrand Traore, Houssem Aouar and Memphis Depay, ended their hopes of progressing to the knockout rounds with two group fixtures still to play.
The Merseysiders' night was made even worse by the sending off of midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, for a second yellow card, and a neck injury to Cuco Martina that hospitalised the defender.
A third defeat from his three games in charge was a further blow to caretaker manager David Unsworth's hopes of being appointed on a long-term basis.
Former Chelsea youngster Traore darted in behind the Everton defence and sidestepped goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to open the scoring.
Aouar placed a shot into the bottom corner for Lyon's second and ex-Manchester United forward Depay completed the scoring with a late header.
