'Waste of time', 'Out of his depth' - Everton fans slaughter mainstay after defeat v Leicester

By Aramide Oladipo

Everton slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City on Sunday afternoon and the club’s supporters expressed their frustration on social media with many criticising Leighton Baines’ display.

The Foxes scored both goals in the first-half with Jamie Vardy breaking the deadlock before Demarai Gray found himself on the scoresheet through a massive deflection from Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny moments later.

Baines, 32, struggled in the first 45 minutes as well as his fellow defenders as the hosts looked dangerous with every attack.

The Toffees played their first Premier League match since Ronald Koeman’s sacking but caretaker boss David Unsworth was unable to get a response out of the players.

Everton supporters took to social media to vent their frustration about the team and many singled out mainstay defender Baines for criticism.

The full-back has featured in every single Premier League match this season but he has only helped the side achieve one clean sheet in the process.

Baines has spent more than a decade at Goodison Park and normally renowned for his attacking threat down the flanks, Baines has only contributed with one goal and one assist in all competitions this season.

The Toffees will look to bounce back against Lyon in the Europa League tie in midweek.
