Good night

And we are wrapping up this page. Reaction from Ronald will be on the site shortly.

We are still waiting for reaction from Ronald Koeman...

You have no idea how much I wish I'd thought of that line Asif.

'He's going to flick one, he's going to flick oneeee!!!'

Asif Maruf: Koeman knows all about scoring when you shouldn’t be on the pitch

'Can't see it changing'

A reminder of what Kevin Kilbane said in his BBC column at the weekend:

"Normally, I would say it is too early to get rid of the manager and you could argue Koeman just needs time for some of his summer signings to adjust and also that if he tweaks a couple of things, they will improve.

"But the problem for Koeman is that I don't see anything changing with the way Everton are playing under him until they can sign players in January."

'We want to show fight'

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Everton defender Ashley Williams on BT Sport: "It is going to be difficult. We wanted to win tonight. I thought we responded well after going 1-0 down but we've taken nothing."

On the clash with Lyon players following his push on their goalkeeper: "It's football. It is what it is. We want to win and so do they. These things happen.

"The pressure you put on yourself is bigger than anything outside. We want to show fight for ourselves, the club and fans. We had a lot of chances - more than them."

On the Arsenal game this weekend: "It is a big one. They are all big, especially against a top team at home. We need a win and a performance."

Justice. What a good young Lyon side.

Koeman’s time is up. He’ll be sacked by lunchtime tomorrow. Dyche next man in.

Will Everton be now facing disciplinary problems for that scuffle which went into the crowd? Uefa are bound to investigate.

Sarah Morgan: Is it apt or ironic I've been knitting while that guillotine hovers closer and closer to Koeman's neck?

So you're saying there's a chance

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Three sides have progressed past the Europa League group stages after collecting one point in the first three games. So it's not all over for Everton but they probably need to go and win in Lyon now.

Which will be a tough ask.

Frank Lopez: Dutch Toffee here: Koeman out! Europa League ruined, PL miles off. Enough is enough! This hasn't been a team in months!

Nicky Cassidy: Can see Koeman being sacked shortly. All that spending just not working out. He should have stayed at Southampton.

Niall Hughes: Goodbye Koeman, you won’t be missed. You can’t blame not having a striker for the fact you concede twice a game!

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Lyon could have had more. They look a good side.

Everton have picked up just one point after three Europa League group stage games – the worst start of any English club at this stage

FULL-TIME

Everton 1-2 Lyon

All over. Muted boos but plenty of applause too.

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Jordan Pickford can't be criticised tonight. Michael Keane is turned inside out again, and Pickford saves well from Maxwell Comet.

Everton 1-2 Lyon

"Under-inspiring, underwhelming, under performing" is the summary of Everton's season so far by Chris Sutton on BT Sport. Fair?

INJURY TIME

Everton 1-2 Lyon

FIVE MINUTES added on.

CLOSE!

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Sandro runs into a cul-de-sac and loses the ball and again Lyon counter well, they have two men over at the far post but the cross is not great, Michael Keane slices away over his own net though.

Everton 1-2 Lyon

We are back up and running after treatment to the Lyon keeper. Ronald Koeman barks some orders. Can his side find another response?

Elsewhere around Europe

Europa League

Nothing to see in the Group F match between Czech side Zlin and Danish visitors FC Copenhagen. Literally.

The game has been suspended with little under 20 minutes left because of thick fog in Olomouc with the score at 1-1..

How bizarre, it was only at 18:53 that I was talking about fog, in Belgrade!

Europa League

Elsewhere, Everton's Group E rivals Atalanta are tightening their grip on top spot, adding a third against Apollon.

AC Milan are still to break through against AEK Athens at the San Siro, while Dynamo Kiev and Braga also both look set to lose their 100% winning records.

Dynamo are being held at 2-2 by Young Boys, but Braga have virtually no hope of finding a winner. The Portuguese side are 2-0 down at home to Ludogorets.

GREAT SAVE!

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Great end to the game here!

Nobody's minding the shop for Everton as they get caught with a three-on-one counter, sub Jordan Ferri takes on Cuco Martina to burst into the box but Jordan Pickford makes an excellent save!

At the other end instantly Dominic Calvert-Lewin chases down a bad touch but Anthony Lopes makes a brave save of his own!

GREAT SAVE!

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Kenny Tete defends the far post well, Everton now have a corner. Load up the box - but Michael Keane can't head it back across goal. He keeps possession though, Sandro crosses in and Dominic Calvert-Lewin with the header - saved!

Good one-handed save by Anthony Lopes!

GShipcott: At 73 mins "Maybe this'll be the turning point for Everton". At 75 Everton concede. That was entirely your fault BBC Sport!

Apologies...

Everton 1-2 Lyon

You can only hear the Lyon fans now. As it stands Everton are on one point, Lyon five, Atalanta seven. Would be tough to qualify from here - not impossible.

Everton 1-2 Lyon

You can tell that Everton are a team low on confidence, that goal has knocked them right out of their stride again. Bertrand Traore leaves Michael Keane with plaited legs and then fires over the top. Keane has not looked like an international centre-half tonight.

PENALTY APPEAL

Everton 1-2 Lyon

Everton want a penalty but the ball clearly hit Marcal bang in the guts. Ronald Koeman is fuming at the fourth official anyway.

GOAL - Everton 1-2 Lyon

Bertrand Traore

And just like that the mood is punctured inside Goodison!

Lyon put together another slick move, sub Maxwel Comet gets past his man easily and puts in a testing low cross to the near post, former Chelsea man Bertrand Traore gets in front of Michael Keane and send a delicious backheel in past Jordan Pickford.

It took a nick off Keane, but all credit to the forward. Wonderful invention.

Everton 1-1 Lyon

Maybe this game could be a turning point for Everton. They are playing with real blood and thunder now. Belief, even.

Twenty minutes to grab a winner.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Everton 1-1 Lyon

Someone's going off here. This game is boiling over as Lyon give away another free-kick in a dangerous area...

Gylfi Sigurdsson steps up - hits the post!

A cross landed right in the six-yard box and struck the far post!

Would you believe it!

Should he still be on the pitch? Questionable. But Ashley Williams is on the pitch and he buries a header to level things up!

Great ball in by Gylfi Sigurdsson, top class, undefendable almost, and Williams planted past Anthony Lopes from the edge of the six-yard box.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 0-1 Lyon

Kevin Mirallas, another man in the midst of that melee, comes off and Sandro Ramirez is on. Yet to score for Everton.

That scuffle has got the crowd onside though and there's more tempo, more urgency to their play.

Elsewhere in Group E

Atalanta 2-1 Apollon

Cypriot side Apollon just found the thing that Everton desperately need - an equaliser. But they weren't level for very long...

Andre Schembri hauled the visitors on terms before leaders Atalanta reasserted their grip on the group through Remo Freuler moments later.

The top and bottom of it is this: Everton are still four points behind second place Lyon.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 0-1 Lyon

Ashley Williams escapes with a booking. He's a lucky, lucky man.

His challenge on Anthony Lopes was needless and it started the whole thing off. That's got the crowd going though.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

It's all kicking off! A genuine scrum down there.

Ashley Williams pushed the Lyon goalkeeper over, needless, and it escalates from there. A 20-man scrum builds up and the players end up almost in the crowd. Pushing and shoving, a fan is throwing punches into the crowd! Wow.

Ashley Williams's head has totally gone.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

Right, Everton half half an hour to sort this out. Does a comeback look likely? You never know. But there's no real pattern to their play. Michael Keane bangs a pass out of play, over hit. He's not alone in having an off day.

Everton win a corner though. Gylfi Sigurdsson, time to deliver.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

Lyon captain Nabil Fekir is coming off. He looks like a fantastic player. On comes Jordan Ferri.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

Too many cooks? Everton are disjointed, not for the first time this season. They have got Kevin Mirallas, Ademola Lookman, Nikola Vlasic and Gylfi Sigurdsson all trying to play behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin. No real pattern to their shape.

Morgan Schneiderlin is struggling. He collided with Jordan Pickford when making that crucial block a few minutes ago and he can't continue. On comes Gylfi Sigurdsson.

YELLOW CARD

Sloppy pass by Michael Keane gifts possession to Fernando Marcal and Ademola Lookman stops the defender from getting away down the left with a late swipe, taking the Lyon man's legs. Yellow card for the Everton youngster.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

But Everton cannot switch off at the back as Myziane Maolida is slipped in on the left side of the area but Morgan Schneiderlin slides in at the last second to block his shot.

Michael Keane had to do better there. He was marking no-one as Maolida was put through.

Everton 0-1 Lyon

A free-kick is just over Ashley Williams before Mason Holgate's deflected cross loops behind Kevin Mirallas as Everton keep up the pressure.
