Matt Le Tissier has suggested that Leighton Baines’ legs have gone as he criticised the entire back four of Everton.

On Sky Sports ‘The Debate’ podcast, Tissier shared his opinion on the left-back as he ripped apart Everton’s defence.

He said: “The back four for me is a huge problem at Everton, it wasn’t something that was addressed this summer.

“I’ve watched Leighton Baines play this season, I’m a massive fan, I think he’s been a fantastic full-back.

“His legs look like they have gone.”

The 32-year-old defender has been at Everton for 10 years, having joined from Wigan in August 2007.

The experienced full-back has already played 17 times this season across all competitions, scoring one goal and creating one assist.

In total across his 10 year period at the club, Baines has made 391 appearances, grabbing 36 goals and registering 63 assists.

The defender has stayed to loyal to Everton throughout the years, even signing a new contract in the face of rumoured interest from Manchester United back in 2014.

Baines signed a contract extension in December 2016 alongside Gareth Barry, who has now gone to West Brom, and youngster Mason Holgate.

The left-back’s current deal after that extension is now set to end in June 2019.
