Loads of Everton fans have been running the rule over their 2-2 draw at Bournemouth, and plenty are calling for Lucas Digne to replace Leighton Baines.
Everton may finally get themselves the first spot on Match Of The Day tonight, as the Toffees played out a thrilling draw against Bournemouth.
The major talking point of the match was of course the red card for Richarlison, who was given his marching orders after leaning his head in towards Adam Smith.
Smith was later sent off himself, and the Cherries then fought back from two goals down in a ten against ten encounter.
The first Bournemouth goal came from a penalty, which was given when Baines clumsily nudged Callum Wilson over in the box.
While it was a very soft decision, fans aren’t impressed with Baines’ performance, and it looks like the veteran left back could be on his last legs.
Baines is a fan favourite at Goodison and for good reason, but with summer signing Digne waiting in the wings, fans are calling for Marco Silva to make a brave call and drop the 33 year-old.

2pts dropped, given we were 2-0 up. Bit of a mad game. Richarlison a big loss & will be for next 3 games. Bernard needs to come in. Baines gave away silly pen. Hope Keane is ok. Defence isnt right, time for new players to start games now. Digne & Zouma need to come in, Mina ASAP.

Gonna get rolled for saying it, but as much as I and others love Leighton Baines, his shocking defensive display cost us 2 points today. The penalty challenge and not closing out for the cross on the equalizer. It’s time to see what Digne can do. #EFC

I love Baines, a true Everton hero in a time when we haven’t had many. He is past his prime though & I hope Digne takes over soon before the crowd get on his back. He doesn’t deserve that for what he’s done for us.
