Lots of Everton fans have been tearing into Tom Davies on social media for his role in our 2-1 loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Davies began our trip to the King Power Stadium in a central midfield pairing alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson, as boss Marco Silva deviated from his traditionally favoured 4-2-3-1 to kick things off in a 5-4-1 formation for the first time since we lost 1-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion in December 2018.

The decision would last until the 80th-minute after Silva brought Morgan Schneiderlin and Moise Kean on to go 3-5-2 while the scoreline remained level, but would not return a winning goal as Leicester rallied to fire home in the 93rd-minute and deal us our eighth loss of the league season.

We are now just two points above the relegation places after 18th-placed Southampton beat bottom-placed Watford 2-1 on Saturday, while fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur are just six points better off after the conclusion of matchweek 14.

Lots of fans have been tearing into Davies for his role in our latest top-flight defeat, as many felt the £25,000-per-week midfielder was, at least in part, responsible for both Leicester goals.

Davies lost a 50/50 challenge as the Foxes broke chasing an equaliser inside 20 minutes of the second-half, and later turned over possession before Kelechi Iheanacho struck the decisive stoppage-time winner.

Was Davies at fault for Leicester's goals?

Yes, both of them

Yes, both of them

Only their first

Only their second

Only their second

No, he wasn't at fault

The 21-year-old also only managed to win one tackle during his 90 minute appearance, per WhoScored data, along with penning one clearance, no blocks and no through balls as he completed just 70.6% of his total 34 passes.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans offered their verdicts on Davies’ performance…

In other Everton news, fans have been slamming a key Toffees man for his ‘poor decision making’ against Leicester City on Sunday.

  • What a load of total b*llocks, yes we are in a mess from top to bottom! I can’t believe that so many are using a 21yr old as a scapegoat!!!! He is the current England u21 Captain and having a ball on International Duty and they love him. How many of you slating Tom have actually played above your Sunday League standards, c’mon be honest. Just recently been given a couple of games amd you are queuing up to give him a kicking, why? The kid is a blue through and through and surrounded by much more experienced pro’s both in age and experience, if after 10/12 consecutive games and within that had 4 consecutive mares then you just might have a point until then get real and look at the bigger picture and let’s stick together COYB
