There was a remarkable away win, a last-minute equaliser and a defeat to a fallen giant on something of a mixed weekend for Everton's on-loan trio.
The only victory came for Francisco Junior, though any celebrations were tempered by the midfielder having to sit out Vitesse Arnhem's unlikely 1-0 win at Eredivisie champions Ajax.
