Seamus Coleman came in for a lot of criticism from supporters after Everton’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley – the 30-year-old underperformed on the day and was sent off after receiving two yellow cards.

Coleman’s form has been inconsistent this season which has led to talk of Djibril Sidibe potentially replacing him at right-back. Whether Marco Silva considers a change remains to be seen, but Coleman could be making up his manager’s mind with below-par performances.

Against Burnley, the Republic of Ireland international played for 56 minutes before his sending off, made 50 touches, created one chance, completed 77.8% of his 36 passes, whipped in one cross, made one tackle and made one successful dribble.

Coleman has tasted defeat in his last four Premier League games and isn’t having the desired effect on the team as club captain. As per Transfermarkt, he’s featured in every top-flight match this season but has managed only four wins, picking up four yellow cards and one red.

Everton are currently 18th in the league with seven points from eight games and haven’t won a game since September 1. Silva needs to make a change to turn things around, so will Coleman be the one to get the axe?
