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.
Nice to see John Stones out of position again while we concede another goal

Very telling that on Alli's goal, both centre backs were caught out of position and left watching.

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.
John stones is horrendously overrated.

wow bad defending from bad defender John Stones @TheM_L_G

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.
Everton is desperate to have Jagielka back. Funes Mori and John Stones simply aren't ready to carry a Premier League defense.

Should we talk about John Stones………this season…….. hasn't been brilliant.

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.
Anyone else think that john stones looks like a miserable spoilt kid? Or is it just me? ⚽️

Is it Just me or does John Stones look well off the pace today
