Everton suffered a 5-2 defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday and Jordan Pickford had an evening to forget. The 25-year-old hasn’t had a good season at club level and can’t get through a game for Everton without making an error.
For Liverpool’s first goal, Divock Origi rounded Pickford who was caught in no man’s land near the edge of his area, eventually finishing into an empty net. Liverpool’s second goal saw Pickford rooted to his line and beaten by a close-range effort from Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Englishman was high off his line and easily beaten for Liverpool’s third from Origi and was frustrated after failing to reach Sadio Mane’s side-footed effort outside the area. Liverpool’s fifth beat Pickford at the far post and may have been another chance other goalkeepers would see off.
Should Jordan Pickford be dropped by Everton?
Pickford conceded from every shot on target Liverpool had on Wednesday. Supporters weren’t happy and made their feelings known on social media.
Pickford is very poor

Pickford really isn't a good GK…

I still find it hard to believe that there isn’t a better keeper in England than Pickford, everytime I see him he’s absolute pants

I don't recall Pickford making a save. He's conceded almost every shot he's faced.

The Pickford Paradox: How is he so good for England and so average (poor there) for #EFC?

Pickford has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season, 14 of which have come in the Premier League. He’s conceded 22 goals in the top-flight and kept only three clean sheets. The 25-year-old has let in nine goals in his last three league appearances and could find himself being rested if things don’t improve.
