Everton fans lavish praise on Pickford

The Everton supporters are not a happy bunch at the moment.

Indeed, Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Burnley was the team’s third loss in their last four Premier League matches, which has dropped them into 11th spot in the table.

The Toffees have been pretty good at Goodison Park this season, but have been absolutely rotten on the road – winning just once in the Premier League.

A number of players have come in for criticism from the Everton fans, while a number also want Sam Allardyce to be sacked as head coach at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

One player that has been widely praised is English goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, with the 24-year-old putting in a string of impressive performances since joining from Sunderland.

The goalkeeper, who is believed to be on £90,000 a week at Goodison Park, has been comfortably the team’s best player this season.

Pickford turned 24 on Wednesday, and Everton’s fans were on hand to pay tribute to a player that will hope to be England’s number one at the World Cup this summer.
