Everton fans have blasted Jordan Pickford after he made a series of mistakes during the club’s 3-1 loss to Manchester City on Saturday.
The 6 foot 1 England goalkeeper conceded three times at Goodison Park, and a number of supporters were unhappy with the manner of the second goal.
Riyad Mahrez bent a free-kick into the bottom corner to give Pep Guardiola’s champions a 2-1 lead, but the shot was to Pickford’s side of the goal and crept into the bottom corner.
He then went on to let in a Raheem Sterling volley, before haring out of his goal in an attempt to tackle Bernardo Silva; he was unsuccessful, though City were unable to score from the chance – leading the Three Lions No.1 to visibly smirk about what could have been another goal for the visitors.
Fans, thus, were unhappy with the form of the stopper as the Toffees slipped to another defeat.
Indeed, Pickford has conceded 10 goals in his last four games, with Everton winning just one of those – a 3-2 triumph over Wolves.
During and after the match, Everton fans were quick to show on Twitter just how disgusted they were with Pickford’s performance…
Pickford was a disgrace. And I’m his biggest fan.

Sigurdsson should be dropped 100% and Pickford isn’t far behind there.

Pickford is a joke. Laughing at messing up and losing the ball in a dangerous position and then his attempted save for the Mahrez freekick. If only we had a decent back up keeper

Coleman was in the correct position, how could he anticipate that pathetic attempt of a save from Pickford?

Dropping him needs to happen as laughing at nearly costing us another goal is disgraceful.Lossl is a decent keeper so I would let him have the next couple of games and see if Pickford grows up a bit.
