‘Everton Pickford is back’: Fans poke fun at England’s no.1 following pre-season howler vs Man United

Man United vs Everton

Manchester United and Everton are currently facing off in a pre-season meeting at Old Trafford.

The game marks the final one for both sides before they kick off their respective 2021/22 Premier League campaigns.

The English top-flight rivals fielded pretty strong elevens to start the game, albeit with a few heavy hitters having missed out.

Pickford’s error vs Everton

At present, it is Manchester United who have enjoyed much the better of the game.

With less than 30 minutes played, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side found themselves 3-0 up thanks to goals from Mason Greenwood, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes.

Maguire headed in the hosts’ second of the day from a corner, before Fernandes netted a stunning free-kick. But it was the first goal of the day which truly caught the eye of fans.

This came about after Lucas Digne headed the ball fairly slowly back into the path of Jordan Pickford.

However, the Everton goalkeeper was unable to control, instead spilling the ball into the path of Mason Greenwood, who knocked it past Pickford to make it 1-0.

The error, in turn, has since seen Pickford become the butt of the joke on social media.

The shot-stopper of course enjoyed a superb Euro 2020 with England, conceding just two goals all tournament, and giving a good account of himself in the finale shootout versus Italy.

But the issue with Pickford has, for some time, been that he is great for his nation – the Everton star was impressive at both the 2018 World Cup and Euro 2020 – and very error-prone for his club.

Fans, as a result, have taken to social media to poke fun at the shot-stopper, with the most widespread joke that ‘Everton Pickford’ is back:
