Everton fans react on Twitter to Steven Naismith's performance v Manchester United

Everton

A hero against Chelsea, this wasn't the Toffees forward's finest hour...

No two days are ever the same in football. They can be similar but not identical. Sometimes, they can be completely different...

For Steven Naismith, that principle is applying right now. Indeed, against Chelsea earlier this season, the Everton forward was absolutely on fire. His perfect hat-trick won't be forgotten by the Toffees faithful - nor neutrals - for some time, if ever.

But, against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, the 29-year-old endured a day to forget. Everton did as a whole, of course, but Naismith stood out as a particularly poor performer.

He was hooked at half-time and it feels like there would have been pandemonium if Roberto Martinez had kept Naismith on the pitch.

Before half-time, Everton supporters were livid with the Scot - and they expressed their frustrations on Twitter, making their feelings pretty clear.

The 3-0 defeat to Manchester United means Martinez's men remain in the top half of the Premier League table but fall to ninth in the standings at this early stage in the campaign. Here's how Everton fans reacted to Naismith's display on social media:
