Duncan Ferguson's reaction to Yannick Bolasie sums up frustrating Everton winger

Everton coach Duncan Ferguson looks on prior to the Premier League match between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park on December 19, 2016 in Liverpool, England.

The club legend looked furious with a strike from the winger in the Merseyside derby.

Everton and Liverpool went head-to-head in an enthralling FA Cup derby tie on Friday night. There was controversy, goals and passion in abundance as the local rivals battled it out, with the Reds coming out on top in a 2-1 win.

A penalty from James Milner was cancelled out by a brilliant breakaway goal converted by Gylfi Sigurdsson. But Virgil van Dijk’s late header on debut proved enough for victory, and to write his name into Anfield folklore.

However, Everton might have had a chance to level it again. They caught Liverpool once again on the break and the ball fell to Yannick Bolasie outside the box. On the outside, was Sigurdsson.

The Icelander was surging through on the right of the winger and, if laid in, would have had a strike on goal. Considering the club record signing is one of the best strikers of a ball in the Premier League, Everton would have preferred him to have a strike at the lackadaisical Loris Karius. Instead, Bolasie struck a half volley, which sailed far and wide of the goal.

Everton fans saw the disbelief in manager Sam Allardyce and assistant Sammy Lee but the best reaction was that of Duncan Ferguson.

The Everton cult hero, famed for his no nonsense hardman approach (and being one of the only players Roy Keane admitted being wary of) was clearly apoplectic at the decision making of Bolasie. His performance was riddled with such poor choices, which will hopefully be eradicated once he is back to his absolute full fitness.

But many an Evertonian would have paid to be a fly on the wall when Bolasie met Big Dunc in the changing room after the game. Legs likely quivered!

But hopefully it will be a turning point for Bolasie. His decision making must be better if he is going to be an integral cog in the Everton machine.
