Everton fans think Pickford is the team’s only shining light

Another dreary weekend for Everton has passed and at the moment there is very little for them to be positive about.

Manager Ronald Koeman is under intense pressure after overseeing just two wins in nine Premier League games.

On Sunday, the Toffees had the unenviable task of taking on Arsenal at Goodison Park, but there was a glimpse of a turnaround in fortunes when Wayne Rooney put the hosts ahead in the 12th minute.

The joy was short-lived though, as Nacho Monreal, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez all scored to give Arsenal a 5-2 victory.

To make matters worse, Everton played the final 22 minutes with 10 men after Idrissa Gueye got sent off for a second bookable offence.

As well as Koeman, plenty of the club’s summer signings have come under scrutiny from the fans.

The Merseyside outfit, who have dropped into the relegation zone, spent in excess of £100m on new players, including Michael Keane and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

One man, though, who received praise rather than criticism was goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Despite the fact that the 23-year-old, who moved to Goodison from Sunderland in the summer, conceded five goals, the fans only had positive things to say on Twitter.
