Many Everton fans lambasted Allan as the Blues went down 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
Rafael Benitez’s fell to a third straight defeat, with Alex Iwobi’s second-half strike not enough to ignite a comeback after first-half efforts from Max Kilman and Raul Jimenez.
They’ve now slipped to 10th in the Premier League table with just 14 points from the first 30 available.
Recapping Allan’s evening at Molineux
Allan continued his run of starting every top-flight game under Benitez, lining-up alongside Jean-Phillipe Gbamin in the centre of midfield.
But his SofaScore rating of 6.4/10 was the third lowest in the side. Only Ben Godfrey, who made an error leading to the Jimenez goal, and Gbamin, who was withdrawn at half-time, scored lower.
He misplaced 13 passes – including all of his attempted long balls – lost seven of his 12 duels and was dribbled past three times over the course of the game.
Here’s what a selection of Toffees on Twitter had to say about his performance.
Allan comes under fire
“Delph wasn’t revolutionary, he simply did all the things a competent midfielder should be doing as standard. The elephant in the room is that Allan has been bitterly disappointing at EFC considering the reputation he arrived with.”
“People can complain about zonal marking, but the problem is desire to win the ball. Allan (again) and Gbamin are being made to look clueless”
“Gbamin and Allan all over the place”
“Does our midfield exist? There’s so much space in behind allan and gbamin”
“I’m going to call this out, & it pains me given how well he started last season: Allan’s dreadful. Like Lucas Digne, he looks good when the team’s playing well, & looks awful when it’s not. Neither player ever lifts the team’s level through their own performance.”
“Allan without doucoure is ridiculously poor”
