Plenty of Everton fans have been slamming a miss by Richarlison in their Premier League 2020/21 season opener away from home versus Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur.
As per a tweet from Sky Sports Premier League, the Brazilian international took the ball round Hugo Lloris before blazing his shot high and wide in what was an early missed opportunity for Carlo Ancelotti’s team to take the lead.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
Thankfully, to spare the blushes of the 23-year old, Dominic Calvert-Lewin connected superbly to a Lucas Digne cross with a bullet header into the top corner in the second half to give the Toffees a 1-0 win.
Richarlison actually had a good game for the Blues bar the miss, making 11/11 successful dribbles and winning 23/26 of his duels in the match, earning him the joint-highest rating with Jordan Pickford (8.2) by Sofascore.
Nonetheless, these members of the Goodison Park faithful slammed the striker on Twitter after missing the golden opportunity to put the Blues in front:
How did he miss?! 🤯
Richarlison capitalises on a loose pass from Davies but he somehow misses the target with the goal at his mercy!

He's been our worst player so far today. His first touch is off, he didn't get his head up to get DCL the ball, and his passing has been average.
