Everton: Adam Jones criticises Anthony Gordon

Everton: Adam Jones criticises Anthony Gordon -Everton News

The Liverpool Echo journalist Adam Jones claimed that Anthony Gordon was ‘trying a bit too hard’ for Everton in their game at home to Nottingham Forest.

The Lowdown: Frustrating

It was another frustrating afternoon for the Goodison Park outfit, as they only managed to draw the match 1-1 through a late Demarai Gray equaliser.

They had plenty of chances to find the back of the net, but in the end Frank Lampard’s team were simply not ruthless enough once again.

The Latest: Gordon frustrations

Taking to Twitter, Jones claimed that Gordon was ‘trying a bit too hard’ in the game, after sending a ‘wildly speculative’ shot towards Forest’s goal:

“Gordon with a wildly speculative effort that he doesn’t catch hold of and it’s easily blocked Get the feeling he’s trying a bit too hard to do something today.”

The Verdict: Speculation affecting him?

You have to wonder whether the speculation surrounding Gordon and a potential move to Chelsea is affecting him on the pitch.

The winger lost out on a mammoth 17 of his 20 duels, while he was also unsuccessful with all six of his dribble attempts, gave two fouls away, and lost possession a total of 16 times (SofaScore).

Right now, regardless of whether his future is uncertain or not, the Merseyside club need him to perform, as that is now three games without a win in the Premier League.

Gordon needs to get back to basics, and if he improves on his performances, he could well earn a move to Stamford Bridge.
