Everton fans have been sticking by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford despite coming under intense scrutiny from his latest antics.
The England international was criticised after footage emerged of him having a good time at the World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace, London.
He was seen to be drinking at any stage where a 180 score was thrown by one of the players.

He had two saves inside the box, one punch and one interception during a game where he was largely untested by a stuttering Gunners’ side under the newly-appointed manager and former Toffee Mikel Arteta.
Supporters stuck by Pickford and believe that he earned his treat due to a good performance on Saturday and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Everton fans:
People having a go at jordan pickford for having a bevy at the darts need to get a life. Nothing wrong with a 25 year old lad having a bevy. No training today so he is just doing what a normal lad wud do while off work the next day

Re the scandal of 25 year old Jordan Pickford having the cheek to enjoy himself on a night out. To those having a go at him I’d suggest they get a life and stop being so abysmally pious #Everton

Good to see the lads enjoying themselves – nothing wrong with young men having a beer – not hiding from anyone are they? Good enough
