Never leave: Everton fans lavish praise on Jordan Pickford

It would be fair to say that Jordan Pickford divides opinion.

He is a goalkeeper capable of making outstanding saves, but his consistency is perhaps not quite what it should be for a player of 25.

A record of 12 clean sheets in 35 Premier League appearances this season is not too bad at all, but there have been some strange performances along the way – the one at St James’ Park against Newcastle United springs to mind.

Even so, the Everton fans reacted largely positively to a tweet from the 17-time England international earlier this week.

Indeed, Pickford was recently awarded a plaque having passed the 100-mark in terms of Premier League appearances.

There were a lot of opposition fans who poked fun at Pickford for some of the off-the-field trouble that the stopper has been involved in this season.

However, the response from the Everton supporters was positive, suggesting that they are happy with how the former Sunderland man is performing.
