Everton fans are unconvinced by Wayne Rooney’s deep lying midfield role

Everton fans are again wondering which direction their team is heading after another poor result away from home in the English Premier League this weekend.

The Toffees travelled to Watford on Saturday looking to pick up a vital victory but failed to produce a convincing performance and were eventually punished by Troy Deeney, who secured a 1-0 win for his side.

Pressure is growing on Sam Allardyce with supporters frustrated by his team selection and tactics, many believing they are far too negative and unambitious.

Players haven’t been exempt of criticism either and one of the players receiving more stick than most is Wayne Rooney.

The former Man United man has been deployed in a deeper midfield role this season and fans aren’t convinced it’s working out, with his performance against Watford particularly poor.

Should Allardyce look to move him further forward in the closing months of the season?
