Roberto Martinez has defended Everton after they lost 1-0 to West Brom, saying they did nothing wrong.
Everton dominated proceedings for the whole game, recording 74% possession and 34 shots on goal, but could not cancel out Rondon’s early opener.
Martinez’s men hit the bar on two occasions, with Barry, McCarthy and Kone missing clear cut chances.
The defeat is Everton’s sixth at home this season, and leaves them six points off Manchester United in fifth.
“We didn’t do anything wrong,” Martinez told Sky Sports.
“Their one shot on target ends up in the back of the net. We looked bright enough to open them, we hit the post, hit the crossbar.
“The effort and the way that we play the game I couldn’t fault. It is one of those moments in football sometimes that are difficult to explain.”
