Plenty of Everton fans have been blasting Abdoulaye Doucoure for his very poor display versus Leeds United in the Premier League.
The Merseyside club lost the game 1-0 at Goodison Park to Marcelo Bielsa’s side thanks to a goal from their new summer recruit Raphinha late on in the second half.
Will Doucoure be a good signing for Everton?
There were not many standout performers for the right reasons for Carlo Ancelotti’s side at all, but Doucoure had one of his worst matches for the Toffees since his arrival from relegated Watford in the summer transfer window.
The central midfield player lost possession of the ball no fewer than 13 times in the clash, and he did not manage to record a single successful dribble, clearance, interception, key pass, cross or accurate long ball, earning him a pretty low 6.2 rating on Sofascore, the lowest out of any player to have set foot onto the pitch.
Everton fan reaction to Doucoure display
These Blues blasted the performance of Doucoure on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even claiming that the 27-year-old is a ‘dud’:
Doucoute makes the easy things look hard at times.

Doucoure has been shocking the last 6 games, I’d drop him as well

He hasnt pulled up a tree since being here. Not once have I thought “got a player here” in any description. Dud

If we’re talking about performances, doucoure was awful!

I think Doucoure was poor tonight, no Matter if Gbamin comes in and is a success. Any top midfielder is needed next summer

Doucoure is poor. Offers little. Waste of money.
Him and Richarlison may as well have been in their old Watford shirts, today.
