10 tweets that prove £40m rated England star has been overhyped

You’d have been forgiven for thinking that John Stones was the best player in the world over recent months, as the 21-year old has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Jose Mourinho tried and failed to lure the 21-year old to Chelsea over the summer, while the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United have also been linked with making big money moves.

While he is no doubt one of the most exciting players in English football, the defender was caught out to allow international teammate Dele Alli to level the scores at Goodison Park.

The former Barnsley youngster has been talked about in the highest regard, but the recent slump in form affecting the Toffees appears to have dampened at least some of the excitement regarding the player.

After all, he’s been plying his trade in a defence that has leaked almost 30 goals in this term, barely the stuff of legend.
