Everton fans have slammed defender Lucas Digne despite generating positive statistics during his side’s 0-0 draw against Arsenal at Goodison Park.
The newly-appointed Carlo Ancelotti was in attendance as Duncan Ferguson led the Toffees for the final time, before becoming part of the Italian’s backroom staff at Finch Farm.
The Blues were unable to break down the north London side, which ended in a dull stalemate between the two teams on Merseyside.
Digne, 26, won many of his battles and strung many passes together which could have had a different outcome for his team.
Despite this, supporters were not happy with Digne and believe that Leighton Baines should have started against the Gunners.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Everton fans:
Said the same. Not the same player. Distribution is awful, mistakes galore, can’t beat the first man from a set piece you could go on.

I’d play baines before him at the moment

Genuinely not a big fan of him. Not being reactive to the slump in form – I’ve always thought the praise of him was a bit OTT.

Spot on this Paul. Think Baines has been outstanding and deserved the start today

His worst game for us by a country mile

Baines should take that LB spot back for me even just to give LD a break he’s obviously out of form 🤷♂️
