Ronald Koeman may be gone but Everton fans were offered no respite from poor results on Sunday as their fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Leicester City.
David Unsworth has been charged with bringing stability to the club while decision makers consider who should be appointed permanently but he couldn’t inspire his side to a result despite a spirited second half performance.
By half-time though Leicester had already surged to a two-goal lead thanks to Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray and Everton’s under fire defence have come in for more criticism as a result.
Fans are particularly unhappy with 33-year-old Ashley Williams, who failed to cope with the pace and threat of Leicester’s attack.
The Toffees defence is now seen as a big priority heading into the January transfer window, with the next permanent manager at Goodison Park having to stem the tide of goals conceded. Only Crystal Palace have conceded more in the league this season so far.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the performance of Williams…
A CB is essential in January. Williams shouldn't be anywhere near this XI. So cumbersome and creates problems. Main opposition threat. #EFC

Hope someone in the media asks about Vlasic omission and the criminal selection of Williams again. #efc

Play Williams (and Rooney) and this is what we will get. #efc

A lot of talk about how we didn’t replace Lukaku but the fact that we have Jagielka / Williams our CB’s is an absolute joke #efc

Ashley Williams would get outpaced at walking football. Asking him to mark Vardy is just suicide #EFC

Might be an awkward ask, but reckon we could get Koeman to play instead of Williams? #EFC

Ashley Williams is a joke. How is he a top-level footballer? #efc

Well that's my Halloween costume sorted. I'm going as Ashley Williams trying to defend! 👍
