Everton fans were unimpressed on Twitter with Gerard Deulofeu’s display during the 3-2 Premier League loss to Watford at Vicarage Road.

The 22-year-old struggled to make an impact as the Hornets’ defence held firm for the majority of the match, after starting on the right wing and seeing out the entire 90 minutes.

Spaniard Deulofeu is likely to be given a bigger chunk of playing time following the long-term injury to summer signing Yannick Bolasie from Crystal Palace, but did not seize advantage on Saturday.

Despite possessing an abundance of pace and fantastic trickery that can bamboozle a defence, Deulofeu struggled as he and right-back Seamus Coleman failed to provide a right-flank connection.

Everton fans reacted with frustration on Twitter, as Deulofeu continues to show just glimpses of talent on the flanks for the Toffees.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The 3-1 loss means Everton have stretched their disappointing run to just one win in 11 league and cup encounters, as pressure continues to mount on Ronald Koeman.

Since his £4.3million move to Goodison Park in the summer of 2015, the former Sevilla loanee has made a total of 44 league and cup appearances in which has has scored four goals.

Deulofeu will be hoping for better luck in Everton’s next fixture, which sees the Toffees host North London giants Arsenal on Tuesday night.

In other Everton news, this electric winger would be a great piece of business if Koeman could strike a deal to see him move north in January.
