While a 1-1 draw away at Manchester United can’t really be considered a bad result, the manner in which Everton conceded the lead late on has annoyed our punters.
In fact, the fact they conceded a last-minute penalty as a result of Ashley Williams’ handball seemed to irk striker Romelu Lukaku something fierce, with the Belgian venting his frustration to the Welshman.
Still, interestingly enough, though the forward is a revered figure amongst our drinkers, there’s been a huge backing online for the Welsh defender online. Yes, he may have blocked Luke Shaw’s shot with his hand, though the former Swansea man played well until that point and was a major reason the Merseyside club held off United for as long as they did.
With Lukaku touted for a potential exit from the club, it’s Williams who looks as if he has the support of users on social media, so here’s how Twitter reacted.
Am I the only one who likes Ashley Williams? Say what you want our defence is stronger than the past 2 seasons

State of Lukaku giving the "sssshhhh" to Ashley Williams last night. Man ignored playing team mates through on goal 3 times. Pleb.

Lukaku shushing Ashley Williams last night, as if he's bigger and better than him? Same team mate, pipe down and do it in the big games.

Ashley Williams dealt with that shot from outside the penalty box last night better than Cech probably would have
