Everton saw their side go down to another defeat when they were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon and one man turned out to be the scapegoat when their supporters reacted to the loss on social media.

The Toffees actually begun the match well and had numerous chances to take the lead in the first half with a combination of poor decision making, some ordinary finishing and a strong showing from Gunners keeper Petr Cech all uniting to keep the Merseyside outfit at bay.

Marco Silva will have feared at half time that his side would be punished for not capitalising on their opportunities and his concerns came true in the second half when a peach of a strike from Alexandre Lacazette and a controversial second from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang condemned Everton to another defeat.

One man who was responsible for making some questionable decisions in the final third was young forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Silva preferred the England under-20 World Cup winner to Cenk Tosun through the middle as he hoped the pace of the attacker would trouble Arsenal.

The Portuguese boss did not really get the return he was looking for however with Calvert-Lewin struggling more in his central position having moved from the left side due to the return from suspension of big money summer signing Richarlison.

It could all have been so different very early on had the youngster looked up when in good shape and rolled in the Brazil international who would have had the simple task of tapping in to put Everton ahead.

He failed to do that though and lost the ball which was symbolic of a below par performance from the youngster, one which few Toffees fans were willing to tolerate after the match.

A number of them took to social media after the final whistle to release their frustrations with the former Sheffield United ace with many suggesting he is not good enough to be starting currently.
