'Rat', 'Will let us down as always' - Everton fans fume over Allardyce decision v Newcastle

Everton fans were furious with Sam Allardyce as he named Morgan Schneiderlin in the starting line-up against Newcastle at St James Park on Wednesday.

It was the only decision Allardyce got wrong according to fans.

One fan tried to look on bright side by saying that if Ashley Williams can improve, then maybe the midfielder could too. Williams has seen a marked improvement in his performances since Allardyce took over.

Under Allardyce, the Toffees are yet to taste defeat having beaten Huddersfield Town 2-0 and drawn 1-1 with Liverpool on Sunday.

However, Everton have not won any of their last five league games away from home.

Newcastle United head into this game winless in their last seven games, which has left them only two points clear of the relegation zone.

The Magpies suffered late disappointment in their last outing against Leicester City as Ayoze Perez scored an own goal, gifting the win to their rivals.

Here are the best reactions from disgruntled Everton fans after the team news was announced:

Newcastle United have lost six of their last seven to Everton, with their only victory in that period coming at St James Park in December 2014.

It was the Magpies’ first league win in four games at the time, with Ayoze Perez, Papiss Cissé and Jack Colback grabbing the goals.

However, Rafa Benitez has never beaten Everton when his team have hosted in seven attempts.
