Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Cuco Martina against Stoke City.
Martina featured for Everton in the Premier League game against Stoke at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
The 27-year-old defender did not start the match, but the right-back came on as a substitute at the start of the second half.
It was the Curacao international’s Premier League debut for Ronald Koeman’s side following his move in the summer transfer window after he left Southampton at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Kyle Walker-peters couldn't get a game for Eng U20's in the summer but Kenny can't get picked ahead of Martina. Joke #efc— Matthew Williams (@mattwill1982) August 13, 2017
Martina was expected to attack yesterday that's not his game or position. He did well, he came on v Sevilla on the left and was good too— James Brown (@mrbrown_efc1878) August 13, 2017
We'd all like Kenny to be in there but that's not Martina's fault that Koeman prefers him— Paul Brown (@PaulBrownEFC) August 13, 2017
Don't understand the hate towards Cuco Martina we looked so much better when he came on a Ht. wanted to overlap and get the ball in the box.— James Brown (@mrbrown_efc1878) August 13, 2017
Cuco Martina: yay or nai!! I thought his last two games he was pretty good and looked assured...— Julian Gray (@JulianGray_EFC) August 12, 2017
We all want Seamus back. I think Koeman brought Martina in as a squad player who can cover several positions. Early days.— PetaPiper (@PiperPeta) August 12, 2017
Martina is the worst player we've ever had though mate apparently— Paul Brown (@PaulBrownEFC) August 12, 2017
Wanted to give Martina benefit of the doubt but he looks out of his depth— Rob Fox (@RobFoxEFC) August 12, 2017
Rather than highlight what Martina can't do, overall performance improved with him on. Freed up DCL when three CBs slowed things down #EFC— Ben Grounds (@Ben_Islington) August 12, 2017
Got to say that martina is a liability at defending— wazza EFC. (@waynewazza1) August 12, 2017
Martina, call him all you want, but when he came on him being out wide stretched the defence instead of everyone being so narrow.— Marc (@Rochey_efc) August 12, 2017
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, hosts Everton had 62% of the possession, took nine shots of which four were on target, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.
