Everton were consigned to back-to-back home defeats after a dreadful collapse against Watford on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues suffered a 5-2 loss at the hands of Claudio Ranieri's side as they conceded four goals in the space of 12 minutes late in the game to completely crumble.

Rafa Benitez's squad had twice taken the lead through Tom Davies in the opening minutes of the game and with a diving header from substitute Richarlison in the second half.

But a hat-trick from former Blue Joshua King, added to strikes from Juraj Kucka and Emmanuel Dennis, sealed all three points in dramatic fashion for the visitors.

We've taken a look at five moments you might have missed from what was eventually a humbling display for Everton at Goodison Park.

Richarlison cheers

One of the very few positives about Everton on Saturday was seeing Richarlison back in action for the first time in over a month.

The Brazil international had not played for his club since their 3-1 win over Burnley in September, in which a controversial challenge from James Tarkowski left him with a knee injury.

Since then, the Blues have certainly missed his influence in the side, but he was back among the substitutes for the visit of his former club to Goodison Park.

Richarlison got a great ovation even before the match started, coming out shortly after the rest of the players on the bench to be met with applause from those already in their seats to watch the warm-up.

And, in rather different circumstances, he got the same when leaving the pitch at the end of the match, too.

Having come off the bench to score a goal which put Everton in front at the time, the forward received a round of applause again as he went down into the tunnel following the boos that had greeted the final whistle.

He looked just as confused and disappointed as so many in the stands.

Ridiculous decision

In other circumstances, Evertonians might have been walking home lamenting the performance of Graham Scott on Saturday.

In truth, some might still have been - but the officiating was far from the reason the Blues conceded so many goals in quick succession at the end of the match.

Regardless, some decisions made throughout Saturday's match were enough to have the Goodison Park fans in either anger or complete bewilderment.

The latter shone through particularly at one moment in the first half, where Tom Davies looked to connect at the back post from an Everton corner to steer it towards goal.

As the ball bounced, it was clear to everyone in the ground that the Watford defender next to him had kicked the ball behind, and many were expecting another Blues set piece to follow.

Scott had a great view of the incident, but he instead endeavoured to point for a goal kick.

Everton's players reacted angrily, Davies was left wide-eyed and confused and a loud murmur of "What?" went around the stadium.

A truly odd decision.

Keane and Allan argue

The first half started with some good football from Everton, but quickly turned to frustration from many in the stands.

The Blues were finding it tricky to get into the usual rhythm that they have used to success throughout the opening stages of the campaign, instead allowing Watford to get a foothold.

As the hosts dawdled in possession, one moment saw Michael Keane with the ball at his feet for an extended period of time in his own half, looking for an option ahead of him before passing backwards to Pickford.

A noise of discontent from supporters greeted that decision from the centre-back, who instantly turned back to have a discussion with Allan in front of him.

The two seemed to be arguing about the options Keane had to play a pass, with the midfielder certainly believing that he was in space for a pass.

Gray ovation

It wasn't the most electric performance from Demarai Gray during his time on the pitch, unfortunately, but Benitez explained the reason behind that following the match.

The manager revealed that the winger had been suffering from a cold, and so was a bit under-the-weather coming into this clash against Watford.

Despite that, he claimed a great assist in setting up Tom Davies for the opening goal and looked to cause problems whenever he did pick up possession.

After a display which saw him put in a lot of effort, the summer signing was eventually taken off the pitch in place of Alex Iwobi - just before the collapse which would unfortunately define the match.

Gray got a great ovation from not just Everton fans, but from Andros Townsend on the opposite side of the pitch as well.

The fellow summer arrival joined in the huge applause for his teammate as he left the pitch, clapping for a good ten seconds before getting on with the rest of the match.

Damning stats

Evertonians might have guessed Joshua King was going to score on Saturday.

His last Premier League goal also came at Goodison Park, against the Blues in Bournemouth's final-day win in 2019/20.

From that point on the striker actually played for Everton for six months and couldn't find the back of the net as he didn't get enough opportunities, before he came back to punish his former club.

If that stat wasn't bad enough, then another really hammers the point home around just how bad Benitez's side were in the final stages of Saturday's game.

Watford became the first team in Premier League history to trail a game after 75 minutes and still go on to win by at least three goals.

What do you even say to that?
