'Awful', 'Clumsy and brainless' - Everton fans destroy senior player on Twitter after loss v Chelsea

By Matt Bullin

Everton fans have criticised Phil Jagielka’s performance after their sides’ 3-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

After an even first 45 minutes, Pedro broke the deadlock for his side with a superb 30 yard strike into the top left corner of the goal.

Gary Cahill then poked home from Eden Hazard’s free kick in the 79th minute, before Willian slotted Cesc Fabregas’ cross into the far corner with just four minutes remaining to wrap up a superb three points at Goodison Park.

The result leaves them seven points clear at the top of the table, while Everton are left in seventh, two points adrift of Arsenal.

They now look destined to finish seventh, as despite only being two points behind the Gunners, they have played three games more than them.

Jagielka, 34, played the full 90 minutes as his side fell to a disappointing defeat.

 

However the Toffees faithful were not impressed with the senior man’s performance against Chelsea and they slammed him on Twitter.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The 40-time England international has been a mainstay in Ronald Koeman’s defence this term and has now featured 24 times in the Premier League.

The club captain entered his 10th year with the Toffees at the beginning of 2017, and is a senior figure in the dressing room.

The 34-year-old has made 348 league and cup appearances for the Toffees.

In other Everton news, this 31-year-old Toffees ace has been named player of the year.
