Everton have no shortage of problems at the moment, although their main concern has to be the amount of goals they are shipping at the back.
Their 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup was not an outlier in terms of their defensive quality, with the club having conceded three goals or more in nine games this season.
Their defence lacks quality, while the goalkeeper is also prone to mistake. It doesn't help when the person in the nets is also constantly berating the players in front of him.
Jordan Pickford is known for his abrasive style in goal, never shying away from letting his teammates know what he thinking when he is forced to make a save. While some are in favour of this approach, it must be tiring to play alongside.
Jordan Pickford criticised for confrontational style
Speaking on Sky Sports, former Liverpool and Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock said that he does not think he would have been able to play in the same team as Pickford due to the way he speaks to his defenders.
"He'd drive me INSANE... Do your job!" 😡

I wouldn't want to play in front of Jordan Pickford, because I'd be thinking 'please be quiet'.
The way he's acting, the way he goes about things, it would drive me insane...
There is a way of doing it (jeeing people up). He saves a shot and has a go at people for letting the shot come in at goal. You're a goalkeeper, do your job and save the ball. Don't moan at people for getting shots away.
There's a way of telling people 'you've go to be tighter, you've got to be more organised'. His is aggressive every time that he comes out, he's shouting at things.
He's just so animated, that for me, every time I see him I think there's a mistake coming or he's out of control in what he's doing constantly.
Jordan Pickford has been criticised for this in the past, especially when he himself is capable of dropping frequent clangers at club level.
You get the feeling he will have plenty to give out about between now and the end of the season as Everton battle relegation.
