Many Everton fans have been left fuming as an update emerged involving the U21 team.
As per the official Twitter page of the Goodison Park faithful, the U21’s lost 1-0 to Hartlepool United at Victoria Park on Tuesday night, meaning that they are now out of the Papa John’s Trophy.
Should Everton sack Unsworth?
They sit in third place in their group having played all three games, winning just once and losing the other two matches, yielding a -2 goal difference (Sky Sports).
The starting eleven was filled with promising young players, such as Lewis Dobbin who has already made two appearances for the senior side this season, while Harry Tyrer and Reece Welch have been with the squad (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, supporters of the Merseyside cub would have not expected the youngsters to go out with such a whimper, and some have blamed coaches David Unsworth and Jose Baxter for their exit.
This is not the first time Unsworth has taken criticism from Blues fans, and it seems the exit from the cup is being seen as a last straw for some.
