Everton fans turn on Rafael Benitez following Watford humiliation

Everton fans turn on Rafael Benitez following Watford humiliation

 

The Everton faithful have taken to social media in their absolute numbers this evening, to take aim at boss Rafael Benitez.

Hornets run riot

The Toffees were of course back in action a short time ago.

After slipping off the pace in the Premier League owing to just a solitary victory in four over recent weeks, Benitez and co. welcomed Watford to Goodison Park, eyeing a return to form.

When all was said and done on Merseyside, however, to say that such a development was not forthcoming would be putting it lightly.

Everton actually twice took the lead on the day, courtesy of strikes on the part of Tom Davies and the returning Richarlison either side of the interval.

But a late, and altogether spectacular collapse, ultimately culminated in Claudio Ranieri’s visitors departing Goodison with all three points, courtesy of a head-turning 5-2 result.

Josh King proved the star of the show, notching a hat-trick, with Juraj Kucka and Emmanuel Bonaventure having also been on target inside a frantic final quarter of an hour.

‘Benitez out’

In turn, on the back of the final whistle sounding, it should come as little surprise to hear that a whole host of Everton’s stars have since been singled out for heavy criticism.

None, however, has been more widely targeted than the man in charge at Goodison, in the form of Rafael Benitez.

The first sign of trouble was always likely to culminate in the Blues faithful turning on their new boss, owing to his much talked about Liverpool past.

And a humiliating 3-goal defeat at home to an outfit who just last weekend shipped five at the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s Reds has, in turn, done the trick, with just some of the social media backlash stemming from Saturday’s action showcased below:
