Many Everton fans slammed Tom Davies after he decided to pass instead of shoot late on in their 1-1 draw away at Manchester United.
The midfielder found himself completely free in the box with a one-on-one opportunity against David de Gea, but decided to square it to Yerry Mina instead of going on to shoot for goal himself.
Should Davies start for Everton?
Mina did put the ball in the net but he was ruled offside after a VAR check, meaning that the goal was chalked off and the score remained 1-1.
It was Davies’ chance to make a real impact from off of the substitutes bench, as the 23-year-old failed to really get into the game in his 20-minute cameo, unable to record a single shot, dribble, or key pass (Sofascore).
He only managed seven touches of the ball overall and lost possession three times (Sofascore), meaning that he squandered it roughly every 2.3 touches on average.
Everton fans on Davies pass
These Everton fans slammed Davies on Twitter after passing up the chance to shoot just prior to Mina’s disallowed goal, with one fan even going as far as to claim that he is ‘useless’:
“What is Davies doing? Stupid mentality.”
“Awful from Tom, what was he thinking?”
“Please sell Davies, so bad”
“Davies is absolutely useless”
“Davies will be thinking about this on the coach home. I know why he passed as he’s not great in front of goal but he had a big target to aim at.”
“Why didn’t he shoot?!!!”
