Some positive news for the club following the disappointing result at Turf Moor – Everton winger Yannick Bolasie now tops the Opta stats for most frustrating player. The Congolese international – who scored his first goal for the blues; put in another mixed display of aimless runs, misplaced passes and a clinical finish.
Reacting to the news, Bolasie commented, “It’s not easy trying to find that balance between moments of excellent play and periods of being completely dogshit, but I’ve been working really hard on it this season, and it’s starting to pay off. I like to think I’ve given the gaffer no idea whether I should be in the starting eleven or not.”
Teammate Gerard Deulofeu who has previously topped the same Opta chart, has fallen down the rankings this season. The Spaniard, having successfully eradicated all of the good parts from his play – no longer carries the burden of any fans’ expectations.
