Everton fans react to Gylfi Sigurdsson display vs Arsenal

Everton haven’t won away at Arsenal since 1996, and the curse of Emirates still hangs over them as the Toffees succumbed to a 3-2 defeat on Sunday afternoon.

After a dreadful start to the season, the Toffees have been revitalised following Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival. Everton, oozing with confidence after recent results, showed sparks of brilliance against the Gunners, but defensive frailties cost them badly.

The likes of Djibril Sidibe, Alex Iwobi and Morgan Schneiderlin all performed below par on the day, but Gylfi Sigurdsson’s not-so-impressive display became a major point of discussion on social media among the Everton fans.

The 30-year-old, who has managed just one goal and two assists this season, had a quiet game and some Everton fans are disappointed with the lackadaisical performance of the Iceland international.

Sigurdsson managed 51 touches, played out three key passes, and attempted two shots during the game. He managed three tackles and one interception as well. In terms of numbers, it doesn’t give a bad reading. However, Everton fans expect a lot from the player who had cost them £45m.
