Ex-Premier League man bashes Everton star after Sunday’s game

Former Premier League star and ex-Liverpool skipper Jamie Carragher has criticised Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson over his impact after being signed from Swansea City.

The Toffees agreed a deal worth £45 million to sign Sigurdsson back in 2017, but the former Swansea talisman is yet to find the form which saw him win so many praises prior to his move to Goodison Park.

Sigurdsson has failed to rack up the sort of numbers in attack which witnessed him retain a key role during his career at the Liberty stadium.

The midfielder featured against Arsenal on Sunday as Everton succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Unai Emery’s side at the Emirates stadium.

And in his post-match analysis on Sky Sports, Carragher questioned the level of quality which Sigurdsson has displayed so far in Everton’s colours.

“If you look at his stats he’s a luxury. £45 million is massive for Everton, they’ve got to be getting a lot more from him.” Carragher said on Sunday

“We’re not talking about a young player, he’s 29. He’s got to be doing it now. What they have got back from him for £45 million is not enough.”

After spending a hefty amount of money over the past 12 months, Everton will be hoping to at least challenge for a top six finish in the Premier League this season.
