Some Everton fans angered as Rodriguez misses Wolves win due to 'fatigue'

Some Everton fans were lashing out at James Rodriguez after news emerged over his omission from the squad for the win over Wolves.

According to journalist Alan Myers, the £90k-p/w Colombian was left out of the team against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men due to ‘fatigue’.

Rodriguez only returned from a short-term calf injury during the last game against Sheffield United, his first start for the Blues since the 1-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The summer signing from Real Madrid has enjoyed a mixed season with the Merseysiders, contributing 15 goals across all competitions, but, missing 18 games due to fitness issues.

His performances and commitment has drawn criticism from Bein Sport presenter Richard Keys, who lashed out at the 29-year-old.

Here are how fans reacted to speculation over the playmaker’s absence…
