Everton failed to make it three English Premier League victories in a row on Saturday, drawing 1-1 at home to Southampton.
It took a 96th minute equaliser from Tom Davies to rescue a point against relegation threatened Saints, who opened the scoring early in the second half thanks to Nathan Redmond’s first goal of the season.
Fans were left frustrated with the result and performance, with boos again ringing out around Goodison Park at half-time for a particularly poor first half display.
Much of the criticism was aimed at 20-year-old Nikola Vlasic, who was making his second start in two weeks, having previously only made one appearance since January.
He didn’t take his big opportunity to impress with many supporters now feeling he may not end up being good enough to have a big impact at the Toffees.
Fans took to Twitter before and after the match to share their thoughts…
Niko Vlasic not good enough for Everton. Move him on.

Everton void of any quality, cutting edge or ability on the ball. No ideas. Davies and Vlasic anonymous. Bolasie inconsistent. Shite.

Shite performance again, was Vlasic wearing ice skates I've never seen a player fall over as much as he did today

Vlasic’s brand of mediocrity is infuritiating. Is objectively “not shit” but then also does very little of any note. Contrasts nicely with Bolasie who can produce magic but can also be dog shit bad for 87 minutes.
