Everton fans hammer Gylfi Sigurdsson after his anonymous performance

On his day, Gylfi Sigurdsson can be a real game-changer for Everton. A dead-ball specialist with countless inch-perfect free-kicks to his name, and with a real eye for the spectacular too.

But sadly for the Toffees, those days are simply too inconsistent for their liking. This season, the Iceland international has really struggled to get going with just two goals to his name in 19 games across all competitions – one of them being that stunning strike against West Ham back in mid-October.

Since that victory in fact, Sigurdsson has failed to either score or provide a single assist, and against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon, he was once again anonymous. As per Sofascore, his 6.3 match rating was the worst of any Toffees player who started the game, and when looking at his underlying numbers it is easy to see why.

He failed to provide any key passes, failed to complete any of his five attempted crosses, and lost possession 11 times. And after seeing his display, Everton fans took to Twitter to voice their frustrations with the 30-year-old.

A few fans criticised him for being a “passenger” in the game, with one supporter in particular insisting that he’s a luxury that they can’t afford to have.

Some supporters of the Toffees even suggested they should look to sell him, with one fan in particular calling him a “disastrous signing”.

At 30-years-old, the time-frame for Everton to get decent money for Sigurdsson is reducing, so if Carlo Ancelotti believes the Iceland international isn’t up to the standards he wants, then a move away as soon as possible may be best.

Meanwhile, Everton fans have reacted to this pundit saying the club have made the wrong choice in appointing Carlo Ancelotti.
