Theo Walcott flopped once again for Everton in the Premier League
Everton suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat away to Brighton on Saturday and attacker Theo Walcott has surely run out of lives with the amount of chances he’s had in the team.
The Toffees were beaten in the Premier League due to a Jurgen Locadia second-half strike and it means they are now 10th in the table.
The Merseyside club were unable to back up a 5-1 win over Burnley on their trip to Brighton and there were a number of players that struggled to perform.
Walcott was certainly one of the biggest culprits in an Everton shirt and it’s not the first time this season supporters have been left frustrated by him.
The 29-year-old continues to be a regular in the starting XI this season, but surely now he can’t keep earning chance after chance under manager Marco Silva.
He was anonymous for large spells of the Brighton clash and failed to show his pace and trickery out in wide areas.
The right-winger cost Everton £20million (Telegraph) back in January from Arsenal, but his inconsistent form suggests that they may have overpaid for the Englishman.
Walcott’s three-goal return in the Premier League is fairly moderate considering the areas he gets into and a lack of composure in the final third can seriously let him down.
Silva has other options at Goodison Park that have to be worth exploring in the next few games ahead of Walcott, while adding more quality in the January transfer market should also be a wish of the manager.
