Everton’s poor Merseyside derby record continued today with a 1-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield. A woeful error from England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford allowed Divock Origi to score the winning goal in stoppage time.
Everton actually performed well and deserved to come away from the game with a point.
One player whose display did have fans debating on twitter was Seamus Coleman. The Irish defender put in one of his better displays this season.
Although he often found Sadio Mane getting in behind he was good enough to recover and constantly denied the Senegalese attacker.
However, despite that aspect of his game, some fans were less than impressed…
Tim Howard levels of hatred for Coleman nowadays

Coleman’s passing is embarrassingly poor #efc

Sorry but Coleman’s time has gone, liability when on the ball

Everton’s right wing a problem- Coleman’s and Walcott below par #EFC

Right hand side needs a complete overhaul. Coleman and Walcott are our weak links

Walcott can’t be blamed for Coleman’s indecision and passing

Coleman is Everton’s captain, however, some have felt he is on the way out. His displays have not been as good as previous years and many have wondered if his recent injury trouble has caught up with him.
Having seen Lucas Digne comfortably take Leighton Baines’ left-back spot, many have wondered if Everton should be considering a new right-back as well.
However, despite some fans still not being convinced, this display showed that there is still plenty in the tank for the Irishman.
Seamus Coleman has been immense here. Best player on the park comfortably

Seamus Coleman has been incredible today #EVELIV

Alexander Arnold has been woeful. By contrast, Seamus Coleman is probably MOTM
