Ten-man Everton were knocked out of the 2017-18 Europa League with another defeat to Lyon as the Toffees manager's hopes of being made their permanent manager suffered a further blow while two teams also suffered the English side's fate on Thursday night.Arsenal, Dynamo Kyiv, FCSB, Lazio and Zenit secured their spots in the competition's next round but David Unsworth's men, Vardar and Maccabi Tel-Aviv have all been sent packing from this season's UEL edition.
Unsworth, who was promoted from the club's academy to become caretaker boss after the sacking of Ronald Koeman, has now lost all three games he has been in charge.The defeat coupled with Atalanta's 1-1 draw against Apollon Limassol means Everton cannot progress from the group stage with two matches remaining.
Former Chelsea player Bertrand Traore opened the scoring in the 68th minute when he outpaced the Everton backline and slotted past Jordan Pickford.
