Pundit urges fans to get behind Everton during troubling spell

It has been a frustrating season for Everton fans so far as they watch their team struggle to get wins on the board.

Ronald Koeman’s men have picked up just seven points from a possible 21 in the Premier League, and in seven fixtures, have won just twice.

In the Europa League they are also struggling having recorded a defeat and a draw in their opening two group games of the campaign.

The fans are growing increasingly frustrated and most have now turned on Koeman, who took the brunt of criticism on Twitter following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley.

BBC Sport claims that Everton mustered 23 shots, with only four on target, while Burnley only created five goalscoring chances, but the one that was converted by Jeff Hendrick was enough to give Burnley all three points.

Expectations rose after the Toffees spent more than £100m on new signings, including Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane in the summer.

Despite bringing in a handful of players, the club never replaced goalscorer Romelu Lukaku and his absence his heavy felt given that the team have scored just four goals in seven Premier League matches.

Former striker Kevin Campbell, who played for Everton between 1999 and 2005, is feeling as frustrated as the fans, but his support of the team has not wavered.
