'Overrated', 'Should be ashamed' - Everton fans blast midfield ace for shocking derby display v Liverpool
Everton fans have taken to Twitter following Tom Davies shocking performance in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
Sam Allardyce had seen enough at the 45-minute mark, and decided to sub him off in place of Premier League veteran Aaron Lennon at half time.
Davies, who has looked promising during the early stages of his career, has failed to impress in recent weeks, and today was no exception.
The young English midfielder has been with Everton since 2009 where he joined the youth system from Tranmere Rovers.
Aged only 19, Davies has already earned 38 first team appearances, but not all Everton fans are convinced.
Here are a few of the best reactions from Twitter:

Tom Davies rightly taking off, still young but he looks miles off it every time I watch him, overrated?? #efc

No surprise to see Tom Davies replaced at half time. A career that started off with such promise I fear will end at Scunthorpe #LIVEVE

Rooney, Pickford and Kenny the only ones that can take some pride so far – what has happened to Tom Davies he needs some time out of the first team

Scouser and Evertonian Tom Davies substituted at half time in a local Derby tells you all you need to know about the lad. At the very least he should be fired up for this. Instead he walked around the pitch lost and stuck in the mud. He should be ashamed of himself. Poor

Davies has represented England from all levels starting at Under 16s all the way to Under 21s, and would have featured for the young Lions during their triumphant under 19s European Championships this summer if it weren’t for Everton requesting he be rested.
But that is not enough to earn a place in the Everton first team, with fans calling for him to take some time away, and perhaps that may inspire Davies to get his career back on track.
Everton did mount a comeback in the second half, claiming a valuable 1-1 draw when Wayne Rooney dispatched a penalty late on at Anfield.
