Everton fans have destroyed senior duo Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams on Twitter after their performances against Swansea on Saturday afternoon.
The Toffees were beaten 1-0 Paul Clement’s side at the Liberty Stadium, thanks to Fernando Llorente’s headed goal late in the first period.
Jagielka was arguably at fault for Llorente’s goal as he was marking the Spaniard, while Williams didn’t cover himself in glory throughout the game either.
The result means that the Swans climb out of the drop zone as their rivals slipped up, but Everton remain in seventh.
Ronald Koeman’s side have now lost back-to-back games after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea last week and their season is stuttering to an end.
Jagielka is 34-years-old and hwas out of the side earlier in the year before Ramiro Fuenes Mori picked up a season-ending injury.
The 40-time England international has been a mainstay of the Everton side for the last eight years and has made 25 Premier League appearances this term.
In contrast Williams, 32, was brought in for £12million last summer and has become a regular centre-back at the club, making 36 appearances in all competitions.
However the Toffees faithful were critical of both senior players after their performances at the Liberty.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Stek, Baines, Jagielka, Williams, Barry: all too old and no longer good enough. So many new players needed.
