Everton fans have been left furious, after Sam Allardyce’s confirmation that everyone at Goodison Park has accepted that they simply weren’t able to compete with Arsenal.

Everton were beaten 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium, in what was a humiliating defeat for the Toffees.

Allardyce’s side simply were not at the races, as they slipped to a heavy defeat in north London.

And Allardyce’s comments about the match have not gone down well.

He said to the Liverpool Echo: “The lads have accepted, we've all accepted, we weren't able to compete with Arsenal.”

Everton fans feel that the quotes are too defeatist, and they have simply served to put Allardyce under more pressure.

Allardyce actually made a bright start at Everton, but a run of one win in nine games has led to criticism rising.

Toffees fans have now suggested that Allardyce’s time at Goodison Park is up, and they should plan ahead for next season.

Everton are currently in 10th place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Crystal Palace.
