Things are going from bad to worse for Everton, and fans are getting fed up with the ineffective performances of Gylfi Sigurdsson.
The Toffees travelled to Vicarage Road on Saturday knowing they would have a hotly-contested fixture on their hands with the Hornets’ players and fans both riled by the return of Marco Silva.
It wasn’t a great match if truth be told, but the home side did manage to carve out a few chances, and Andre Gray found the game’s only goal after good work by Craig Cathcart and Will Hughes.
While the result is obviously a huge concern for Silva and the Toffees, the performance was perhaps even worse than the result suggested, and fans are fuming at Sigurdsson.
The set-piece specialist looked like a man reborn earlier this season, as the Icelandic international was finally providing the goals and assists that prompted Everton to spend £45m on him back in the summer of 2017.
The 29 year-old has racked up nine Premier League goals this season, but just one of those has come in 2019, and he was really poor on Saturday.
Sigurdsson managed just one shot, which wasn’t on target, and failed to complete a single dribble or key pass.

Siggurdsson’s days are numbered imo. Balance of the team better without him

Im not having him. Play the kids ahead of him for a few weeks – he’s got the heart of a pea. Not interested
