Everton: Fans slam Mason Holgate display

Everton: Fans slam Mason Holgate display - Everton News

Many Everton fans were critical of the performance of Mason Holgate in their 2-1 home loss to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Merseyside club got off to the worst start possible at Goodison Park, with both Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil netting superb goals in the first half before Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for the hosts with a bullet header after a Tom Davies cross.

Is Holgate the best centre-back at Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Carlo Ancelotti’s men could not find a way to equalise and ended up emptyhanded in what was another disappointing performance at home.

Holgate was one player who did not cover himself in much glory, losing out on four of his duels and failing to record a single successful dribble, clearance, interception or key pass from the right-back position, as well as losing possession of the ball no fewer than 17 times, the joint-third most out of any player to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).

Everton fan reaction to Holgate display

These Toffees supporters slammed Holgate’s performance on Twitter, with one Blues fan even going as far as to call the former Barnsley man’s efforts ’embarrassing’:

“As long as Iwobi, Holgate, Gomes & Davies are in our first 11, I don’t want to see us near a European competition… also DCL minus his heading ability is still a bottom-half striker.. #EFC”

“Iwobi can’t cross. Holgate can’t cross. There is the right side nullified straight away. Then there is the centre backs standing with a foot on the ball watching nothing happen in front of them. Terrible #EFC”
