“Still stealing a living,” some Everton fans slam £110,000-a-week attacker after disappointing Wolves defeat

A section of the Everton fans were unpleased with the showing of Theo Walcott during Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Merseyside outfit had the opportunity to jump into the seventh position in the standings by getting the better of Nuno’s side but that could not happen with the visitors producing a commanding attacking performance.
Following the game, a few supporters on Twitter criticised the performance of Walcott, who was mostly an anonymous figure before being hauled off the pitch at the hour mark.
The England international had a frustrating afternoon where he made limited impact from the right wing and he ended the game with one shot while managing just 25 touches, according to Whoscored.
Here are some of the reactions;

The image of Cenk Tosun chasing a black cat in the Wolves 6 yard box is painful. More movement from the cat and Tosun than from our forward line and midfield in the last 20 minutes. More entertainment and movement from that cat then Sigurdsson and Walcott all day. #efc #EVEWOL

Walcott is so bad man…

Can’t fathom what Silva was thinking starting Walcott. He should be nowhere near the first team right now. Not that he is the only one, but we have far better options out wide than Theo. #efc

The £110,000-a-week [Spotrac] ace has certainly struggled to please the club’s supporters during the ongoing campaign and of late, he has found himself in-and-out of the starting lineup owing to his average performances.
After a less than impressive showing against Wolves, manager Marco Silva should axe the Englishman from the lineup and it would not come as a surprise, if one of Ademola Lookman or Bernard feature from the off in the next game.
With the defeat, the Merseyside outfit have dropped to ninth on the table but they could fall further down the standings with Leicester City and West Ham United left to play during the gameweek.
Next up, Everton have a preponed fixture against Manchester City at Goodison Park and they could witness a difficult game unless they make a vast improvement on the defensive scale.
