The Toffees suffered a stunning 4-3 loss to Stoke at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
Former Everton defender Ball was far from impressed with the final result and has singled out goalkeeper Tim Howard for criticism.
Howard, who is 36 years of age and is an USA international, has been on the books of Everton for almost a decade.
It seems that Ball was not impressed with Howard’s performance against Stoke.
Just back from the match, was expected to give praise for the win at NUFC, but that just papered over cracks! Conceding 4 at home!— Michael Ball (@bally03) December 28, 2015
People say top 4 or 6 side? We haven't won 2 games in a row! & concede far too easily! Same old story with individual mistakes! Howard!— Michael Ball (@bally03) December 28, 2015
I agree manager needs to protect his players, but u can't kid 40,000 each week mistake after mistake Is it in his contract that he plays?— Michael Ball (@bally03) December 28, 2015
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Goodison Park, hosts Everton had 51% of the possession, took 15 shots of which just three were on target, and earned six corners.
Roberto Martinez’s side are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 19 matches.
Everton will return to league action on January 3 when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park.
