The Premier League clash between Everton and Crystal Palace at Goodison Park was the only top-flight encounter on the calendar on Sunday.
This meant that football fans of many different clubs would have their eyes on the spectacle.
Unfortunately for 86 minutes it was not exactly a spectacle, but more of a drab affair on Merseyside.
It was only in the final few minutes when the game burst into life with goals from Everton substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun.
For Palace, Mamadou Sakho was selected to start alongside James Tomkins at the back.
The former Liverpool defender played the full 90 minutes and has started all nine of the Eagles’ league fixtures.
Sakho was at fault, along with his defensive teammates, for Everton’s first goal as he allowed Calvert-Lewin space in the box to get his header away.
The centre-back did little to prevent Tosun’s striker as well, which summed up a disappointing afternoon for Palace.
On Twitter, fans from a range of different clubs seemed to all agree that Sakho was poor at Goodison.
Sakho is such a liability for Crystal Palace at the back. He is Soo stiff and slow ? #EVECRY

Genuinely I never rated Sakho. Looks like a manufactured defender. “Hes a big chap, let’s teach him how to defend”.

Not having Mamadou Sakho at all either. An expensive Claude Davis.
