The Toffees suffered their third consecutive Premier League defeat after goals from Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling sent the champions back to within five points of league-leaders Liverpool.
Marco Silva’s men forced the visitors to work hard for their victory, and the game was level for a lengthy spell when Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelled out Jesus’ opener.
But the scoreline could’ve painted a different picture when Pickford almost gifted a fourth to Bernardo Silva when the England goalkeeper came rushing off his line late on.
Pickford was pictured laughing after the brief scare, but Neville did not see the funny side of it and also slammed the goalkeeper for his handling of Mahrez’s free-kick.
