Everton suffered yet another defeat away from home in the English Premier League on Saturday, defeated by Burnley at Turf Moor despite going ahead in the match.
Things were looking good for the Toffees when new signing Cenk Tosun scored his first goal for the club after 20 minutes, but a dismal second half saw Sam Allardyce’s side collapse under pressure from the home side.
Ashley Barnes equalised shortly after half-time before Chris Wood capitalised on poor defending from Ashley Williams to head home with just 10 minutes remaining, securing the 2-1 win.
Fans were left fuming with the performance of Williams, especially since he got himself sent off late in the game for elbowing Barnes when there was still a chance Everton could grab a last gasp equaliser.
The majority have completely lost patience with the 33-year-old and, considering he’s supposed to be a leader on the pitch as captain, were left disappointed with his conduct.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his display…
Ashley Williams really shouldn't be playing for us anymore. #EFC

Ashley Williams has been on shaky ground with the Everton fans for a long time. His absolutely irrational behaviour (as captain of the club) here has only made things worse. #EFC #BUREVE pic.twitter.com/00GLqD0fvt

Stupid from Ashley Williams. His suspension will probably be a good thing… #EFC

Williams and Keane has to be one of the worst Premier League centre back partnerships I've ever seen. Our defence is beyond a joke now #EFC

Ashley Williams, easily the worst 'so called' professional we've ever had at our club.
I'd welcome the club cancelling his contract & just fucking him off.#EFC

The sooner Ashley Williams leaves our club the better. Abysmal footballer. #EFC

As night follows day, Everton capitulate when under defensive pressure. Have no idea what Ashley Williams was doing there. This team's lack of organisation and character is a joke. #EFC
