Everton fans react to Gerard Deulofeu's performance against Arsenal on Twitter

Everton lost 2-1 to Arsenal in yesterday evening's match.

Gerard Deulofeu's performance against Arsenal drew mixed reviews from Everton supporters on social media site Twitter.

The Spanish winger was heavily involved in the Toffees' 2-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium, but it wasn't always for good reason. 

Deulofeu appeared keen to go down under any contact, and the Arsenal fans' frustrations which him could be heard in the stadium.

Everton supporters, too, seemed aggravated by his apparent willingness to go down under the slightest of contact, and they have urged him to stay on his feet in future. 

Aside from the supposed simulation, Deulofeu was bright throughout the contest though, and he claimed an assist for Ross Barkley's goal.

He also had Everton's best chance of an equaliser late on, but he was thwarted by an excellent save from Petr Cech in the Gunners' goal. 

He appeared to be in the heart of the action throughout the contest, and here is the best reaction to his performance from Toffees supporters.
