Many Everton fans have been left slamming the display of Ben Godfrey in their 3-0 away loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The former Norwich City defender had a torrid few minutes especially when Leon Bailey came on for the hosts, as he really struggled to contain the explosive winger, who managed to grab himself a stunning goal and an assist from a corner which was flicked into the net by Lucas Digne.
Should Godfrey start for Everton?
A centre-back by trade, Godfrey struggled to adapt to the right-back position all game, losing out on six of his duels, while also failing to record a single clearance or interception, and losing possession of the ball on no fewer than 15 separate occasions, the second-most out of any of his teammates (Sofascore).

These members of the Goodison Park faithful slammed his performance on Twitter, with one Merseyside club supporter even going as far as to claim that he was ‘woeful’:
“Godfrey is having a stinker. Sorry, but he is”
“I am not sure I have seen a worse 10 minutes of defending from outside backs then I have seen from Everton here. Godfrey and Digne both WOEFUL on all three goals”
“Ben Godfrey was atrocious there like! Poor showing but lack of squad depth was gonna catch up with us as soon as we got a few injuries”
“Ben Godfrey is not a right back, shocking shocking performance.”
“Ben Godfrey – Nightmare!”
“Ben Godfrey jogged to track back there that’s so poor”
