Everton: Fans slam Digne’s defensive efforts vs Wolves

Everton welcomed Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves to Goodison Park at the weekend coming off the back of a win over League One side Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup, but having tasted defeat in their last top-flight fixture.

Digne had featured throughout the EFL Cup affair at the Sincil Bank Stadium, and earned WhoScored’s Man of the Match award with an 8.9 out of ten after winning each of his four attempted tackles, penning one clearance and one interception.

The football statistics company only awarded the French left-back a 7.6 rating against Wolves, though, as he committed two fouls, failed to take possession with half of his attempted tackles and misplaced 23 per cent of his passes, but managed eight clearances, one interception and assisted Richarlison’s winner.

The Liverpool Echo were even harsher with their rating of the former FC Barcelona defender, meanwhile, as they deemed his efforts against the Molineux natives to only be worth six out of ten as he was beaten far too easily by Wolves winger Adama Traore and was at fault for each of the visitors’ goals.

Everton supporters were quick to share the same sentiments on social media during and after the game, with fans claiming the 26-year-old was failing to deal with the ‘bread and butter’ of his position and that it was a bad day at the office for the Meaux-born defender.
