Everton supporters were left unimpressed during their 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League today, with Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson receiving the majority of criticism for his performance.
Sigurdsson, who started alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure in central midfield for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, proved an ineffective figure at times – with one supporter claiming he ‘offers nothing’ whilst a fellow Toffee branded him a ‘liability’.
It was a tough 90 minutes for Everton, who were seeking to climb back up the Premier League table against a Magpies side who were on a terrible run of form and hadn’t won once in their previous Premier League nine games.
Indeed, Everton could have grabbed a top five spot this afternoon with victory against Newcastle and kept up the chase for Europe – but three dropped points has thwarted that opportunity at least for now.
Two goals from Callum Wilson condemned them to defeat at Goodison Park – with Sigurdsson attracting particular criticism as these Toffees voiced their displeasure with his ‘pathetic’ display.
Find all of their verdicts down below.
