Lots of Everton fans have been left furious by some comments from Marco Silva after their defeat to Norwich, as he commented on the lack of pace in the side.
After what looked like the start of a possible turnaround in form for the Toffees at St. Mary’s, the last thing they needed was a woeful home performance against one of the worst sides in the Premier League.
That’s exactly what they got though, as Norwich City, who remain in the relegation zone even with Saturday’s win, romped to a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory at Goodison Park.
Silva’s side fell behind when Teemu Pukki supplied Todd Cantwell for the opening goal, and substitute Dennis Srbeny made sure the Canaries would be heading back home with three points, striking in stoppage time.
The pressure on Silva may now be the most intense it has been at any point during his tenure, and his comment after the match did little to quell the flames.
Silva: “Not enough pace or mobility to disorganise them.”

Yes, that’s right, the man who elected to start Cenk Tosun, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Morgan Schneiderlin said his team lacked pace and mobility.
Unsurprisingly, fans are furious, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
You put Schneiderlin, Gylfi and Cenk In the starting line-up. What the hell did you expect??!

He chose the team

On him. Picked the team. Everyone could see we’d struggle to move the ball quickly with that starting 11. Changed too late. In response to lack of pace brought on Coleman. Joke.

Tosun and Sigurdsson starting. Calvert-Lewin, Kean and Iwobi all on the bench. pic.twitter.com/1PEevLELAo

Why start schneiderlin, Tosun, and Siggy if you’re worried about pace & mobility? Why bring on Coleman? 🤡🤡🤡
