Everton fans react on Twitter to Barkley performance v Crystal Palace
By Harvey Byrne
Everton fans were once again left wanting more from Ross Barkley on Twitter following his performance against Crystal Palace on Friday evening.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has been out of sorts in the new campaign, which includes being dropped by his club as well as being dropped from the England squad.
He started the match at Goodison Park where the Toffees and Palace battled to a 1-1 draw after a Romelu Lukaku free-kick and Christian Benteke equaliser.
The attacker played for 77 minutes before being brought off for Kevin Mirallas and fans on social media weren’t that happy with his performance.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Nothing creative from the midfield. Cleverley shouldnt be near the starting XI, Bolasie was clumsy and Barkley just needs dropping #EFC

Bolasie, Mirallas, Barkley, Deulofeu cannot afford to cost through games if things aren't coming off… they need to atleast give 100%. #EFC

Barkley has featured in eight fixtures for Everton in the new campaign scoring two goals.
He has made 127 senior appearances at Goodison Park since gradating through the club’s academy and has scored 23 goals.
The England international was once a highly thought of prospect at the club and fans will still hope that he can get back on track and fulfil his potential with the side.
However, with just two years left on his contract and he could leave the Toffees in the near future if he doesn’t sign a new deal, or his poor form continues.
