Many Everton players came away with criticism after Wednesday’s 5-2 defeat to Liverpool, but supporters slaughtered Gylfi Sigurdsson on social media the most after his below-par performance.

The 30-year-old started in a deep-lying midfield role alongside Tom Davies, but he made considerably fewer touches than Georginio Wijnaldum & James Milner and didn’t provide much in the way of creativity.

He was culpable for Liverpool’s fifth goal on the night too, failing to close down Georginio Wijnaldum before he fired an effort into the bottom corner. Fans weren’t happy and made their feelings known.

Against Liverpool, Sigurdsson played for 90 minutes, made 44 touches, won one aerial duel, created one chance, completed 85.7% of his 28 passes, made two interceptions, whipped in seven crosses with 14% accuracy, made three tackles, blocked one shot and drew one foul.

Should Gylfi Sigurdsson be dropped by Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Iceland international has scored and created just two goals in 15 Premier League appearances this season and could be at risk of losing his place in the starting lineup if his form doesn’t improve. Sigurdsson had to operate in a deep-lying midfield role due to an injury crisis, but it’s clearly not working.
