Many Everton fans have been cursing the performance of Andre Gomes in their 2-1 home defeat to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Merseyside club lost yet another game at Goodison Park as Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s headed goal after a fine cross by Tom Davies was not enough to cancel out earlier strikes from Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil.
Should Gomes start for Everton?
Gomes did not have the best of games for Carlo Ancelotti’s team, losing out on 100% of his duels as well as failing to make a single successful dribble, clearance or tackle, while losing possession of the ball no fewer than 19 times in the match, the second-most of any player to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).
Everton fan reaction to Gomes display
These Toffees supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one Blues fan even going as far as to claim that the former Barcelona man was ‘shocking’ against the Clarets:
“Davies/Allan double pivot makes more sense to keep possession & better defensive structure. Gives Richarlison King more license to stay further forward pinning fullbacks back. Instead allowing Gomes just to run round helplessly an try hit 40-yard balls into the main stand #EFC”
“Gomes stinking Goodison out here. Dreadful. #efc”
“Gomes looks like a fan who won a competition to play for Everton in this game. Totally shocking #efc #Everton”
“Garbage that Iwobi and Gomes #efc”
“Would keep Allan, Doucoure and probably Davies who has looked like he has improved a bit this season. Gomes and Iwobi can go though. Don’t know what they are supposed to offer. #EVEBUR”
“Predator, Holgate and Gomes in the bin please. Had enough. #EVEBUR”
