Everton: Fans stunned and outraged by remarkable Gylfi Sigurdsson statistic

Everton: Fans stunned and outraged by remarkable Gylfi Sigurdsson statistic - Everton

The dust has settled on the Merseyside derby but Everton fans are still furious about the performance of Gylfi Sigurdsson, who touched the ball just 44 times in the clash, including one 17-minute spell without a single touch.

There were more than a few Everton players who underperformed on Wednesday night. Dominic Calvert-Lewin had little impact yet again, Michael Keane had an absolute nightmare and Jordan Pickford conceded from every shot on target.

Perhaps none were as poor as Sigurdsson though, who at times looked like he just didn’t want to be there.

According to a Sky Sports statistician, the Iceland international went almost 20 minutes without touching the ball, failing to get a touch between the 62nd and 79th minute.

Indeed, Tom Davies had to do the running of two players in the middle of the park, as Sigurdsson clearly does not have the work ethic to play in a midfield two.

Considering he was signed for a whopping £45m and is still valued at £31.5m (Transfermarkt), fans are understandably fuming at his display.
