Everton knocked out of Europa League by Lyon

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Ten-man Everton were eliminated from the Europa League after second-half strikes from Bertrand Traore, Houssem Aouar and Memphis Depay gave Lyon victory in their Group E encounter.

The defeat coupled with Atalanta's draw against Apollon Limassol means the Toffees cannot progress from the group stage with two matches remaining.

Traore struck in the 68th minute when he outpaced the Everton backline and slotted past Jordan Pickford.

Their second came 14 minutes from time when substitute Aouar threaded his shot past the reach of the England goalkeeper, who was already spread out on the turf having saved from Mariano Diaz in the build-up.

It went from bad to worse for the visitors when they were reduced to 10 men after Morgan Schneiderlin received a second yellow for a foul on Maxwel Cornet.

And with two minutes remaining former Manchester United midfielder Depay applied the final blow when he headed in the third from six yards.

Earlier in the match, Everton full-back Cuco Martina was taken off in a neck brace having fallen awkwardly in a challenge with Cornet.
