'Wasteful' - Everton fans were not impressed with Richarlison's latest display

Everton fell to a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City in the Premier League, missing the chance to move above Manchester United.

Marco Silva will not be too dispirited by Everton’s performance but a lack of ruthlessness in front of goal and some sloppy defending cost the Toffees in the end.

And one player who was guilty of being goal-shy yesterday was Richarlison.

The Brazil international is Everton’s top scorer this season and is usually reliable in front of goal.

But he spurned a glorious chance with the scores level at 0-0 yesterday and it could have been a different game if that had gone in.

The 21-year-old, who arrived in the summer from Watford, has netted eight goals in 15 Premier League matches for Everton.

But he could have done better yesterday as Everton looked to halt rampant Manchester City’s title bid.

Richarlison has a poor record against the top six and that was extended at The Etihad Stadium in this weekend’s loss.

Below are a selection of tweets from Everton fans discussing Richarlison’s lack of success in front of goal yesterday.
