Everton supporters have aired their disappointment in Mason Holgate following the Toffees’ latest defeat against Leicester City.
The 23-year-old defender completed the full 90 minutes for the fifth league game in a row in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat (as per Transfermarkt).
Despite many fans being pleased over his performances in recent weeks, the loss to the Foxes saw a change in attitude towards the Englishman.

Is Mason Holgate good enough for Everton?
Yes, he has talent
No, ship him out
While the defender, who is valued at £6.3 million (Transfermarkt), has bagged a goal and two assists for the Toffees in ten league and cup appearances so far this term, he has only mustered an average rating of 6.53/10 (as per Whoscored).
In the latest defeat for Marco Silva’s side, the Englishman performed even worse than his average and picked up a weak 5/10 (as per Liverpool Echo).
With his latest performance acting as one of the weaker in recent months, many aired their frustration over the 23-year-old.

What do we think?
It seems strange, prior to Sunday’s defeat almost every Everton fan was delighted with the progress that Holgate was making.
However, following a poor performance from the Englishman and everyone wants him gone.
It is likely that the frustration towards the 23-year-old is born out of a deeper frustration from supporters surrounding the club’s situation at the moment.
