Everton winger Alex Iwobi had his shirt thrown back at him by an enraged fan after the Toffees were soundly defeated by Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Bournemouth defeated Everton for the second time in five days, thanks to goals from Marcus Tavernier, Kieffer Moore, and Jaidon Anthony, with the result condemning the Merseyside club to their sixth defeat in eight matches.
Everton was far from their best in Saturday’s game at the Vitality Stadium, with Bournemouth running riot to maintain their impressive start to the Premier League season and secure a positive result before the World Cup break. After the final whistle, the traveling fans were furious with their team and made their feelings known when Everton’s players trudged over to applaud them, with some unsavory scenes unfolding in the away end as several police officers and matchday stewards rushed over to calm things down.
Fans were quick to express their displeasure, and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was seen arguing with a number of supporters at the side of the pitch before turning his back and walking away. Iwobi then threw his shirt into the crowd, only to have it thrown right back at him, with Everton fans in no mood to sympathize with the Toffees squad after yet another hugely disappointing result.
Everton manager Frank Lampard attempted to appease those in the stands with sorry gesture, but it did little to quell the rage of the visiting fans who had made the long journey down to Bournemouth to witness a shambolic collective effort from their players.
