Everton crashed out of the League Cup after a shootout loss against Southampton last night.
The Toffees went behind after a first half goal from on-loan Liverpool striker Danny Ings. Theo Walcott did well to get his side back on level terms late into the second half.
However, Marco Silva’s men failed to produce in the penalty shootout. Southampton won 4-3 in the shootout.
Everton fans were disappointed with their side’s performance against the Saints. They were unhappy with Tom Davies’ showing in particular.
The young midfielder has really struggled to get going this season and it seems that the Goodison faithful are losing patience with him.
Everton fans took to Twitter to criticise the young midfielder after a poor display. It will be interesting to see if he can bounce back soon.
Silva needs to manage Davies’ development better and it would be wise to take him out of the firing line for a while now. Perhaps a loan spell would be the best for the player right now.
Here are some of the reactions to Davies’ performance from earlier.
Tom Davies doesn’t get in a single midfield in the prem but captains Everton and starts every week. Absolute dog shit him.

Tom Davies is fucking useless

I’ve seen some shite play for Everton over the years but Tom Davies takes the fucking biscuit mate, he offers NOTHING
– Can’t control the ball
– Can’t pass
– Can’t shoot
– Isn’t fast
– Isn’t strong
Can anyone give me one reason he should play other than “he’s a blue tho” ?

He and Tom Davies are possibilities for my all time worst Everton 11.

I’m sorry Tom davies isn’t good enough. Yes we won but that first half especially just shows how off pace he is. Can we please forgot that city goal

Someone tell Tom Davies he can go play with Bart Simpson and their skateboards when the match is on.
Someone also tell Marco to swerve that 442 shite.

Fed up of people defending Tom Davies, hes fuckin useless, what positives does he bring to the pitch?? Alls he does is slows play down, pass backwards and 8 out of 10 of his negative passes dont reach the player… scruffy little tit
