Without a win in their last seven matches in all competitions, Sam Allardyce’s Everton team are in desperate need of a positive result.
The Toffees will host Leicester City in the Premier League next week looking to record their first top-flight victory since a 3-1 win over Swansea City on December 18.
It would be fair to say that the Everton fans are unhappy with a number of things at the moment, but team selection is up there when it comes to the source of their frustration.
One player that has taken a lot of criticism from supporters in recent weeks is Morgan Schneiderlin, with the Frenchman struggling to show his best form for the club.
The 28-year-old has been involved in Everton’s last 10 Premier League matches, but has found it difficult to show the type of form that once earned him a move to 20-time English champions Manchester United.
In response to quotes from Allardyce – which were posted on Everton’s official Twitter page – the club’s fans took the chance to give Schneiderlin a bit of stick.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be found below:
🔵 | Sam Allardyce says every member of the squad must be "super fit" and "super dedicated" to take their "one chance".
What would your starting XI be against @LCFC next week?

So how does the gutless & lazy Schneiderlin get endless chances to annoy us with his lack of commitment

One chance yet Schneiderlin plays week in week out and Klaassen and Sandro don't even make the squad

Horse crap. Schneiderlin saunters around the pitch in another world and gets picked every week regardless!

Schneiderlin plays every week and walks through games
