Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Gylfi Sigurdsson against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Sigurdsson was in action for Everton in their Premier League game against Brighton at Goodison Park.

The former Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as Carlo Ancelotti’s side won 1-0.

The Iceland international put the Brighton defence problems in the first half and played better than he did against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, but defensively he was found lacking and could have done better overall.

 

According to WhoScored, against Brighton, Sigurdsson played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 82%, won one header, took 67 touches, made three tackles, two interceptions and one clearance, and put in six crosses.

So far this season, the former Swansea City star has made 18 starts and three substitute appearances in the league for the Toffees, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

Everton fans were not impressed with the display produced by Sigurdsson against Brighton and have criticised him on Twitter.
