Everton suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Norwich City on Saturday and Gylfi Sigurdsson was one of many players to be criticised by supporters for his performance. The 30-year-old has been dropped on a handful of occasions recently, but he started over the weekend and once again failed to vindicate Marco Silva’s decision.

Sigurdsson also had a hand in Norwich’s second goal in injury time. He tried to tackle Emiliano Buendía and pass to Mason Holgate on the edge of the area but ended up gifting the ball to Dennis Srbeny who scored. After losing the ball, the Icelandic international watched Srbeny beat Everton defenders before finishing past Jordan Pickford and didn’t think to try and stop him.

His performance didn’t go down well with supporters and could cost Silva his job. Everton are 16th in the Premier League table with 14 points from 13 games, having picked up just one win in four. Sigurdsson has featured in every league game this season, but he’s contributed only two goals and has fired blanks for two months.

Should Marco Silva drop Gylfi Sigurdsson?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The midfielder’s last league goal came in mid-October and his last assist came at the start of September.
