After such promise in the summer, Everton’s season looks to be drifting into turmoil.

This has lead to criticism of Everton’s most expensive signing and key creative spark, Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Under a new era with a new manager, it was expected Sigurdsson would spearhead a more attack-minded Blues midfield and use his passing abilities to unlock opposition defences.

Eriksen’s average of 3.62 per 90 minutes betters Sigurdsson’s average of 3.38 only marginally, yet Sigurdsson’s completion percentage of 62.7% is much better than Eriksen’s 55.5%.

This season, Eriksen’s xA average is 0.24, whilst Sigurdsson’s is 0.19.

Sigurdsson, of course, signed for Everton in the summer of 2017 for a hefty fee of £45m.

In a difficult first season at the club, plagued by managerial changes, a heavy price tag and untimely injuries, Sigurdsson still managed to return a satisfactory four goals and three assists in 25 Premier League starts.
