Many Everton fans have slammed the performance of Andre Gomes despite their 1-0 away win against Arsenal in the Premier League on Friday night.
The Merseysiders managed to grab a crucial three points at the Emirates Stadium thanks to a bizarre own goal from Bernd Leno, despite not really being at their best.
Should Gomes start for Everton?
One player who flattered to deceive was Gomes, who failed to record a single shot on goal, clearance, interception, key pass or cross in the match and was consequently subbed off by Carlo Ancelotti in the 66th minute for Fabian Delph (Sofascore).
The Portuguese midfielder will need to put in much better performances than the one against Mikel Arteta’s side if he is to stay in the starting XI for the rest of the season, especially as he has frequently been the target of Toffees’ fans vitriol in recent months.
Everton fans on Gomes display
These Everton supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to claim that he was a ‘joke’:
“That was depressing and the tactics were all over the place. Richarlison who has barely played on the right side is suddenly put there. No width on the left. Gomes is a joke of a player who needs dropping. James thinks he has an hour on the ball and is dispossessed so easy #efc”
“Gomes giving it away like it’s going out of fashion. #ArsEve”
“Remember when Gomes used to pass to a Blue shirt? No? Me neither. #ArsEve”
“Does Gomes ever not bottle a tackle?!?! #arseve”
“Gomes offered nothing tonight”
“Andre Gomes and Sigurdsson couldn’t tackle a paper bag”
