Everton’s Wayne Rooney & Michael Keane savaged after Man City

Everton 1 – Manchester City 3

Ninth in the Premier League, it’s been another highly average season for Everton.

Where are the Toffees going? How can they progress?

In fairness, when Sam Allardyce took over the Everton hot seat, the club were still in danger of going down.

Big Sam helped steady the ship, but many have accused the former England manager of being able to take the club on.

On Saturday Everton were outplayed and outclassed by Man City, who had the match sown up by halftime.

Leroy Sane broke the deadlock after just four minutes, while Gabriel Jesus killed off Everton with City’s second.

The Sky Blues went into the break 3-up after Raheem Sterling cashed in a third in the 37th minute.

Yannick Bolasie scored a consolation in the second half for Everton.

It was all over by half-time… 🔥 #MCFC #ManCity #football #MOTD #PL

Wayne Rooney & Michael Keane savaged

Everton fans have been paying attention to what John Collins said after the Man City game.

The former Scotland international played over half a century of games for Everton in his heyday. But Collins isn’t impressed by what he’s seen at Everton this season.

Speaking on BeIN Sports after the City match, Collins tore into senior Everton players.

While Jordan Pickford was given a pass from criticism, the likes of Wayne Rooney and Michael Keane were ripped apart.

On Keane, Collins labelled the centre-half “average, very average”.

Wayne Rooney? Collins noted the former Man United star’s “legs are starting to go”, while he doubted whether Everton should have signed the forward in the first place.

What about Gylfi Sigurdsson? Collins called him “overpriced”, and doubted whether the Icelandic playmaker will “excite you”.

Theo Walcott? Collins said “no… he hasn’t progressed since the age of 19”.
