Everton fans share anger towards Ronald Koeman after defeat against Leicester
By Harvey Byrne
Everton fans have aired their anger towards manager Ronald Koeman on Twitter after the Toffees fell to a 2-1 defeat against Leicester on Saturday.
The Merseysiders took a one goal lead through striker Romelu Lukaku around the hour mark, but the Premier League Champions fought back through two Ahmed Musa goals.
The defeat saw Everton fall out of the cup competition at the third round stage with a lot of the blame going to Koeman.
The Dutch manager especially came under criticism for poor tactics, substitutions and play fitness from their support on social media and many are starting to doubt whether he is good enough.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Subs from Koeman confused me, realise the squad isn't what he wants, but leaving Barry on made no sense

Martinez guided #Everton to a record Premier League points haul in his first season without Moshiri's ££ Why is this acceptable from Koeman?

Everton made the semi-final of the competition last season under Roberto Martinez, which saw them suffer a 2-1 defeat against eventual winners Manchester United.
They have now suffered early exits from both domestic cups after previously losing 2-0 in the EFL Cup against Championship side Norwich.
Their league campaign does however read better as they sit in seventh in the Premier League, but they are nine points behind Manchester United in sixth after winning just one match out of 10 earlier in the season.
Their next fixture will also provide a stern test as they are scheduled to play Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City next Sunday.
