'Huge problem' - Everton fans slaughter senior man for performance v Watford

By Aramide Oladipo

Everton supporters have taken to social media to slam summer signing Wayne Rooney for his performance against Watford on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees produced a sensational comeback to take all three points against the Hornets at Goodison Park.

The visitors scored two goals early in the second-half through Richarlison and Christian Kabasele but Everton were not to be denied.

The hosts turned the match completely on its head through goals from Oumar Niasse, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and late Leighton Baines penalty to secure an incredible result.

The Merseyside club managed to achieve their first win since former boss Ronald Koeman was sacked last month.

Despite getting securing three valuable points, the Everton fans were quick to criticise senior man Rooney, 31, for his display.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The majority of the Everton fans were delighted to see Rooney substituted on the 68th minute as his replacement Calvert-Lewin notched up the equaliser.

Although he received criticism for his performance, the former England international has still managed to contribute with five goals and one assist in all competitions.

The Toffees have now climbed out of the bottom three with that victory and they now find themselves in 15th position.
