Leicester City defender Jonny Evans has not made a great start since signing from West Bromwich Albion.
Leicester City fans have hammered ex-West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans after he was given a rare starting chance last night.
Leicester fans have been calling for Wes Morgan to be dropped for some time, and his suspension allowed Evans to come into Claude Puel’s side.
However, the summer signing from West Brom struggled to cope during the contest.
Leicester started well at the Emirates Stadium, but started to get carved apart by Arsenal in the second half.
In the end, the Foxes were beaten 3-1, and Leicester fans were not at all impressed by what they saw from Evans.
Thank the gods we didn’t pay for Evans when WBA were asking for mad money. No better than Morgan. #lcfc— Kurt Ledger (@LedgerKurt) October 22, 2018
Also think Evans has had a little bit of a stinker. #lcfc— Marky Mark (@mnorman1985) October 22, 2018
It may be controversial but I think Morgan is still a much better player than Evans. #LCFC— RidgeMK (@RidgeMK) October 22, 2018
Wes Morgan > Jonny Evans #LCFC— Martin O’Gorman (@Martinog23) October 22, 2018
On another rather unexpected note, Jonny Evans makes me more nervous than Danny Amartey, who saw that coming?! Lads not done too bad but he’s got that kinda pass that’ll put a striker through on our own goal, know what I mean? Let’s hope not today. #lcfc— WTFox (@WTFox1884) October 22, 2018
Evans out, Soyuncu in— 13 (@ZidasBoy_) October 22, 2018
Evans actually was a reliable figure at West Brom, and was always highly unlikely to stay at the Hawthorns following their relegation.
Whether Leicester will keep Evans in their team for their next match remains to be seen, as Claude Puel does have other options he could turn to.
