Manchester City coming to Goodison Park and picking up all three points was seemingly a given, and even after Everton put in a good performance, supporters were still left frustrated.

The Toffees pushed City to the very edge as the Merseyside club managed to pull off more shots against the reigning Premier League champions than any side had managed since November 2015 as tweeted by Match of the Day, yet only one managed to squeeze past Ederson in the opposing net.
And after such a performance, the last thing supporters wanted to see was their eventual sole consolation goal in the 3-1 defeat to City, which is why fans were raging on social media with Everton after they did exactly that on their official Twitter account.
Here is what some Everton supporters had to say on Twitter…
Pathetic tweet …

We were rubbish. Again. How many gilt edged scoring opportunities missed? Silva clueless. I appreciate they have a job to do but the @everton social media channels are getting more Comedy Ali-esque by the day. COYB!!!

The result saw Everton claim their third defeat in a row, with their last points in the Premier League coming against Wolves at the start of the September.
