A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to hit out at Mason Holgate for his first-half display against Aston Villa.
He lost the ball in a terrible area to Villa striker Ollie Watkins, with the latter punishing the Everton man to put the visitors in the lead.
Holgate has been the club’s eighth-best performer this season in the league prior to kick-off, as per WhoScored, recording an average Premier League match rating of 6.82/10, but his dawdling on the ball was cruelly punished by Watkins.
How much is Mason Holgate worth?
£15m or more
Less than £15m
