The Spaniard came under pressure from some fans for his performance during the 3-1 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield in the Merseyside derby on Saturday, and they don’t seem to have forgotten it as they prepare to travel to Old Trafford in midweek.
Ronald Koeman’s men know they can leapfrog Jose Mourinho’s men with a win at the Theatre of Dreams, but they will have to be better than they were against their arch-rivals at the weekend if they are to do so.
Everton fans were quick to post their reaction to the tweet via social media, and while some were critical of the 26-year-old and his shortcomings, others were keen to support their stopper.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the post…
