Many Everton fans have been left blasting the display of Salomon Rondon in their 3-0 away loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Venezuela international had big boots to fill as both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison were ruled out of the game, but did not really live up to expectations.
Should Everton have signed Rondon?
He lost out on no fewer than 15 of his duels in total in the match, far more than any other player on the pitch, and also failed to record a single shot on target, dribble or key pass, while losing possession of the ball 11 times and achieving a mere 38% pass accuracy, again the lowest out of any player (Sofascore).
Of course, it is still early in his career at Goodison Park, but Rondon must do better if he wants to start more games under Rafa Benitez.

These supporters of the Merseyside club blasted his performance on Twitter, with one Toffee even going as far as to claim that he looked like a ‘Sunday league’ player:
“Horrific result, but given the injuries we have there was little we could do to fight back. Rondon’s fitness needs addressing fast though, he was miles off it. Tough pill to swallow but we go again against QPR”
“And he’s 32 and spent the last year playing at amateur level! Poor desperate signing”
“Rondon looks very rusty”
“Rondon looks like a Sunday league player who sunk 10 pints last night and ate a kebab at 4am.”
“I knew Rondon would be a waste of wages”
“Seen milk turn quicker than Rondon mate”
