Everton's Theo Walcott admits fighting off relegation now a priority for club

Everton manager Sam Allardyce said he was "very angry" about a "pathetic" and "unacceptable" display as they lost 5-1 at Arsenal in the Premier League.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce admits this season is already a "write off"'.

"They were embarrassing. They were hopeless defensively in the first 45 minutes".

Instead, Everton ran into an Arsenal side on Saturday firing on all engines and linking up all around the pitch to score seemingly at will.

"None of our first eleven in the first half, played anywhere near their best". I'm angry - very angry - at the players performing to that level.

"It was a disaster". "Unfortunately, Swansea played at the top of their game and we played at the bottom of our game". We didn't implement my plans either defensively or offensively and the game was dead and buried.

'This is the ideal opportunity for him now to come out of the shadows at Arsenal and go into a team like Everton and try and take the mantle and responsibility of being the team's star player because he promised that so often for Arsenal and never really delivered that on a consistent basis'. "It isn't good enough".

"With Theo, a lot of things have been said - he hasn't reached his full potential and all that - but I don't know how you could say that after last season's performance: 30-odd games, 19 goals".

"That's why we were tumbling goals left, right and centre with our pathetic performance". It is football, and whatever formation you play, or whichever personnel are in the team, you have to do your best.

There have been a few recent results like getting the draw against West Brom and then beating Leicester City where we have seen improved performances but I have come here to push Everton on. We've been trying to balance the two off. It's hard to go into a first team dressing room with the likes of Thierry Henry, Freddie Ljungberg, Robert Pires. We have to face that for this season.

"Tom Davies was very good, and Dominic (Calvert-Lewin) was good and got the goal".

"Sam was very critical of how they played, but in every interview he always talks about how they defended".

Everton dropped down one spot in the table to 10th.
