Some Everton fans have been left slamming the display of Andros Townsend in their away game at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon.
The new signing missed a good chance in the first half that he really should have tucked away when the score was still 0-0, before his fellow winger Demarai Gray showed him how to finish by slotting nicely under goalkeeper Robert Sanchez after a neat run into the box to give them a 1-0 lead at half-time.
Should Everton have signed Townsend?
Townsend was also guilty of losing out on a fair few of his individual battles throughout the match, and was unsuccessful with some of his dribbles and crosses, while he also lost possession of the ball on several occasions (Sofascore).
Nonetheless, it was not his greatest performance, and the former Crystal Palace man will certainly want to improve after the international break.

These members of the Goodison Park faithful slammed his performance on Twitter:
“Leave Townsend in Brighton”
“Not really just Richarlison and Townsend decision making is really really bad so far. Richarlison is selfish and no one ever talks about it. Even in the last match shares the ball too late”
“Townsend is so bad mate”
“Can Townsend stop thinking he’s Robben for a bit and actually pass the ball?”
“Townsend just doesn’t do it for me”
“Townsend needs to get off the pitch”
