Leicester City suffered a home reversal when they went down 2-1 to Everton at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and one man felt the brunt of their criticism on social media after the match.

The Foxes will have gone into the contest with their spirits high after managing to win at Newcastle last weekend, but they were always on the back foot against the Toffees.

Everton took the lead at the King Power after just seven minutes when Richarlison put them ahead, and although Ricardo Pereira had levelled just before half time, the Merseyside outfit won it with a blistering strike from Gylfi Sigurdsson in the final 15 minutes.

Prior to that goal from the Icelandic midfielder, the match turned when Leicester saw their captain Wes Morgan dismissed for the second time in three matches.

He was sent off for two bookings just after the hour mark, having been given a final warning moments earlier, and there is no doubt that had a major effect on their chances of getting something from the match.

Morgan will always be remembered as the man who hoisted the Premier League trophy for the Foxes, but there have been signs in recent outings that suggest that the Jamaica international could just be starting to fade as a force at top flight level.

Leicester will now be without their influential skipper for the next two matches, and it remains to be seen whether he will get his place back in the side, with the likes of Jonny Evans waiting to come in and be a regular feature.

Foxes fans were pretty scathing in their assessment of Morgan’s performance against Everton, with many believing that although he will always be one of their heroes, his time could be up.

Here are the pick of their twitter posts:
