Joey Barton has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 5th February, that Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is braindead.

Gueye was selected to start in Everton’s last match, as they were beaten 5-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

And Barton has hammered the central midfielder, as he believes Gueye has no positional sense.

“Idrissa Gueye. Remember when kids were on the play ground and they all chase after the ball, and then somebody runs off because a crisp packet blows across the play ground and he’s braindead? That’s Gueye. I think Schneiderlin is terrible, but it doesn’t help having him alongside him because the amount of times he vacates the middle of the park,” Barton raged.

“Evertonians tell me he’s a good player, I can’t have it.”

Gueye was one of the worst players on the pitch, as Everton suffered a humiliating defeat against Arsenal.

The Toffees were absolutely horrendous, as Arsenal picked up a comfortable three points. The Gunners tore Sam Allardyce’s side apart time after time, with Everton’s defensive play absolutely awful.

Everton have won just once in their last nine matches, with the pressure seriously building on Allardyce.

Everton are now in 10th place in the Premier League standings, but they still sit seven points above the drop zone, with the Merseyside outfit looking likely to finish in mid-table this term.
