Plenty of Everton fans have been left raging over a fresh claim which has emerged from Rafael Benitez.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of their match at home to Arsenal in the Premier League on Monday night, the Spaniard has claimed (via Patrick Boyland): “We are really disappointed with things. We ran more than Liverpool in every single department but conceded four goals. They punished our mistakes and it is something that we are already analysing.”
Should Everton have hired Benitez?
It seems as if Benitez is trying to make excuses for why his team lost 4-1 at home to their bitter rivals, but the fact of the matter was that they were embarrassed on their own patch, and it now means they have gone eight matches in the top flight without a victory.
Some Everton fans also pointed out that they probably ran more because they were chasing shadows all game, as they recorded a mere 31% possession against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Everton fans on Benitez claim
These Toffees supporters raged as the claim was shared on Twitter, with one going as far as to claim that it was ‘unbelievable’ from Benitez:
“Absolute weapon, we were chasing shadows all game”
“This guy is a parody, unbelievable”
“Ran more because we had 31% possession, couldn’t keep the ball with any composure and were chasing them round like headless chickens. Some of his comments are seriously unnerving to read.”
“Who is he trying to kid #rafaout”
