Loads of Everton fans have been giving their verdict on the first four games of the season, and it seems fans are completely split on the form of Tom Davies.
When Davies broke though in the 2016-17 season, Everton fans felt they had a superstar in the making, and the fact that he is a local lad was just the icing on the cake.
The 20 year-old plateaued last season, though it seems harsh to criticise an all-action midfielder for not excelling in a Sam Allardyce team.
That is perhaps why some fans were hopeful of a real breakout season under Marco Silva, but the young midfielder has not exactly hit the ground running so far.
Across three Premier League showings so far, the 5 ft 11 in ace is averaging an impressive three tackles per game, but just 0.7 dribbles per game and 0.7 key passes per game.
62 Premier League appearances at just 20 years of age is incredible, but plenty of fans are giving him stick for how he has started this season, starting to wonder how long it will be before we stop talking about potential and get immediate quality performances.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans are completely split on the youngster’s form and future…
I agree 100%+++++ so called Everton supporters who always point finger at Davies are not being fair

he doesnt need time, he has played enough games now in this league. his first touch is Not good enough, not aware of play around him

Just a crab in the middle. Horrible to think we have him when we could of had seri who gone Fulham. Davies should of been loaned out so he can play ever game then take what we can for him in summer

I expect Tom to get better and better and I am confident Marco Silva will give Tom more game time.

If he’s too young for criticism…he’s too young for the first team… it’s a mans game not a nanny state. He’s being paid thousands per week to be wrapped in cotton wool and he’s garbage.

Can’t believe I’m about to say this.. but some Everton fans are disgusting in their treatment of Tom Davies. It’s like they wait for him to make a mistake so they can moan about him. A young Everton lad trying 200% harder than everyone else! I was embarrassed by some fans today.

Lad I can’t even defend him anymore. He’s not good enough it’s as simple as that we need to strengthen our midfield and Davies isn’t the answer. Throw him out on loan to another prem team like Bournemouth Brighton or Cardiff see how he gets on there
