Some Everton fans were far from happy with the display of Gylfi Sigurdsson despite their 1-0 victory over Southampton on Monday.
The Toffees picked up the three points thanks to a goal from Richarlison in the first 10 minutes – it proved to be the only goal of the game. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are now just two points away from the top four in the Premier League with a game in hand (Sky Sports) and have a real chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Sigurdsson actually provided the assist for Richarlison’s effort, but that was not enough to please some Everton fans. Many expected more from the Iceland international, who was actually named as captain on the night, with many feeling he was anonymous for much of the 90 minutes. He completed just 19 passes against the Saints, the third-fewest of the Toffees’ starting line-up (Sofascore).
Should Sigurdsson be dropped vs West Brom?
These supporters took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts, with one branding the 31-year-old a “headless chicken”.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Sigurdsson below
“Sigurdsson rivaling Lord Lucan in the world hide and seek championship…great ball for Richarlison and absolutely anonymous since”
“Time to get Sigurdsson off. Running on empty.”
“I’m amazed. I thought he Gomes came to life for about 5 or 6 mins midway through the 2nd half but thought the game totally passed him by for the rest. Too pedestrian, not capable of breaking the lines or committing opposition defenders. Sigurdsson usual anonymous performance.”
“Didn’t enjoy that performance at all. We were cruising when we could’ve easily won that by more. Didn’t get out of second gear. At least we got the 3 points. Still no idea what Sigurdsson does. Headless chicken.”
“Not sure about 7 for Sigurdsson Adam. Great pass for the goal, credit where it’s due. That aside, he was anonymous though.”
“Very nice pass for the goal. Some decent deadball delivery. After half an hour he turned into the invisible man. Another typical Gylfi performance. He wasn’t only v average performer. Terrible game. Poor team performance. No way you can say he had a good game.”
