Morgan Schneiderlin had a pretty good game for Everton against Newcastle United before being forced to leave the field early in the second period with a dead leg.
Indeed, the Frenchman showed glimpses of the type of work that once convinced Manchester United to bring the defensive midfielder to Old Trafford.
Schneiderlin, who is valued at £18m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has been widely praised for his performance against the Magpies on Monday night, with some claiming that it was his best showing for the club.
There is no question that the 28-year-old looked more lively and in tune with his teammates, but it seems that the Everton fans are not quite buying the praise that followed.
Indeed, the majority feel that the adulation was too much for a player that has really struggled to make his mark at Goodison Park since arriving in January 2017.
The Everton fans are pretty frustrated in general at the moment – particularly with head coach Sam Allardyce – and they have vented on social media once again.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

If you are happy with that last night then football is not for you . It was dreadful, no wonder fans started leaving at 75 mins and the stadium wasn’t even a sell out

"circulating the ball quickly and purposefully," i know you've got a positive spin on it but really!!! 1 shot on target all night. Lads behind me in Gwladys spent game sortin where they're going on holiday, i ended up being more interested in that than the game.. was dreadful
