Everton fans have been feeling less than enthused with the team’s recent performances, and manager Sam Allardyce has taken the brunt of the criticism.
Following last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor, the Merseyside outfit dropped to 11th in the Premier League table.
One area of the pitch that has sparked discussion among fans has been in defence, with individual players failing to put in consistently strong performances.
Michael Keane was recruited from the Clarets last summer in the hope of strengthening the back line, and while he has put in strong displays, the showings have not always been on a regular basis.
Ashley Williams has also faced criticism from the supporters, which has sparked some members of the fanbase to call upon Ramiro Funes Mori.
The Argentine has not played competitively for the Toffees for almost a year due to a serious knee injury, but he has been building up fitness by playing two games for the Under-23s.
Today, the defender is celebrating his 27th birthday, and fans have reacted to the club’s well-wishes by calling on Funes Mori to be brought back into the team.
Get him in with Holgate and send Williams and Keane to the gulags
