Everton fans have slammed Sam Allardyce’s decision to start Yannick Bolasie in the line-up that will take on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
The Toffees announced the team news on their official Twitter account ahead of kick-off with the only change being Idrissa Gana Gueye coming back into the fold.

After drawing 0-0 with Merseyside rivals Liverpool at Goodison Park last week, it seems that most Evertonians would have expected Allardyce to ring more than just the one change.
And it seems that most of the supporters wanted Bolasie, 28, axed after being less than impressed with the DR Congo international’s form as of late and took to Twitter to rage over his inclusion.
One angry Everton fan claimed that he has been “woeful”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Bolasie has made 13 appearances in all competitions for Everton this season after he returned from a year-long spell on the sidelines with a serious knee injury that saw him go under the knife on more than one occasion.
He scored his first and only goal of the campaign in the 3-1 home defeat to Manchester City in March, but even that has left fans wanting Allardyce to drop him from the side.
