Many Everton fans have taken to Twitter to slam Dominic Calvert-Lewin over his performance in the Merseyside club’s latest Premier League clash versus Leeds United.
The Toffees took the lead in the ninth minute of this game through Gylfi Sigurdsson and per The Liverpool Echo, Calvert-Lewin had the opportunity to double his side’s lead just a couple of minutes later, however, he was denied by Leeds stopper Illan Meslier.
That would have been Calvert-Lewin’s first Premier League goal since 5th December and it seems like his goalless run was starting to irk some Everton fans, as he’s been receiving plenty of criticism for his performance in this game from Toffees supporters on Twitter.
However, he went on to prove these Toffees fans wrong just before half-time as he did end up scoring the second goal of the game for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
So, what have these Everton fans been saying about Calvert-Lewin?
Some Everton fans have been slating the 23-year-old’s first touch, while others complained about his form before the striker made them eat their words.
“Why is no one talking about Calvert Lewin’s form recently”
“Calvert Lewin needs an injection of composure”
“DCL in a bit of a slump, been starved of service but he’s also not asserted himself enough.
Feel like tonight is an opportunity for him to get going again.
“Although DCL is decent in the box and in the air, he has a tackle for a touch tbf”
“First touch is awful”
“Innit, whilst we’re here, DCL needs dropping”
“DCL hold up play has been awful last few games”
“DCL Struggling again tonight”
“Forget the lack of goals, DCL has been dreadful for weeks now.”
Is this criticism fair?
