Many Everton fans were left to slam the display of Andre Gomes despite their 2-0 away win over Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Goodison Park club earned their first win over their bitter rivals at Anfield in the division for over two decades with a goal from Richarlison and a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty to inflict Jurgen Klopp’s fourth loss at home in a row.
Should Gomes start for Everton?
While there were some very good performances for Carlo Ancelotti’s team, Gomes’ flattered to deceive, picking up a booking fairly late on in the first half and making some needless fouls that could well have accumulated to get himself a second bookable offence and thus a red card.
The central midfield player lost out on around 92% of his duels and also failed to record a single shot, successful dribble, interception, key pass or accurate cross in the game, earning him a very measly 5.7 overall rating on Sofascore as he was substituted off just short of the hour mark.
Everton fan reaction to Gomes display
These Toffees supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one Blue even going as far as to call the former FC Barcelona man a ‘liability’:
“Get Gomes out… too timid defensively #LIVEVE”
“Cannot sit back for 90 minutes and hang on. Gomes off, just giving the ball away and offers no protection at all #LIVEVE”
“Is Ancelotti not seeing the same game as the rest of us? This ain’t working lad #LIVEVE get some grafters on. Doucoure garbage. Gomes garbage. No tackles going in. Garbage”
“Glad he’s been subbed, had a poor game all round and was a red card in waiting #Gomes #EFC”
“Gomes off and also sold #efc”
“Gomes becoming a liability out there #EFC”
