Many Everton fans were destroying Jordan Pickford as he smiled to the camera after just about stopping a shot by Daniel Podence from going into the back of the net through his legs.
As per a clip shared by Toffee TV on their Twitter page, the Wolverhampton Wanderers player hit an effort straight at the keeper, to which Pickford almost fumbled the ball over his own goal line.
The fact that the 26-year old appeared to have smirked directly at the camera as members of the Goodison Park faithful were watching seems to have enraged a lot of them, to the point where one EFC supporter even branded him a ‘clown’.
Should Pickford be sold by Everton in the summer?
Wolves ran out rather comfortable 3-0 winners in the end at Molineux and all but ended Carlo Ancelotti’s hopes of qualifying for European football for the next season given their place in the Premier League table.
These Blues were clearly not impressed with what Pickford did, especially after making the initial mistake, as they perhaps questioned the seriousness of the English international goalkeeper:
Don't think I've ever disliked an Everton player more

That mistake & the similar one v Leicester has nothing to do with ability & everything to do with not being switched on. Pathetic from a keeper who enjoys telling everyone how good he is.

Doesn't even deserve monopoly money

He’s the worst goalkeeper in the league questionable for the 2nd and 3rd becoming a missive issue for us. He’s lucky we don’t have much to spend or he’d be gone.
