Following Everton’s dramatic 3-2 comeback win away to Watford, supporters have been divided over match-winning man Theo Walcott – with a debate on Twitter emerging over whether the goal will truly spur him on to good form or if this is just a flash in the pan.
Walcott, who scored an injury-time winner for the Toffees at Vicarage Road last Saturday, has been in debatable form this season when taking the whole campaign into context – with the former England midfielder scoring just one goal and assisting one more in 18 league appearances, as per WhoScored.com. By comparison, fellow winger Bernard appears to have accumulated superior numbers – amassing more key passes (1.1) and more completed dribbles per game (1.3) than his teammate.
Despite Walcott garnering a better shots per game ratio (1.6), you could argue that his Brazilian counterpart has had more of a creative influence this season. Regardless, due to Walcott’s heroics last Saturday, you could also debate that his match-winning strike may be a key moment in the 30-year-old’s quest to gain some prolific form.
Is Carlo Ancelotti too good for Everton?
As a result, these Toffees supporters are divided over his overall ability – find all of their best comments from Twitter down below.
But he made one correct decision
Is to run with full speed or this can’t be score
HIS PACE IS STILL INSANE

While some fans really seem to hate everything he does, goals and assists clearly lacking, at least under ancelotti he’s looked better than he did under Silva imo. Hard to look worse than he did back then. Important goal on the weekend, maybe a turning point for him?
