The former Wales midfielder added: ‘Pickford didn’t have much else to do. But that is a terrible error.

The mistake against Brighton at Goodison Park follows two errors during Everton’s 5-2 win over Fleetwood Town in the Carabao Cup third round.

The 26-year-old’s poor pass allowed allowed Mark Duffy to reduce the deficit at Highbury Stadium.

Pickford was at fault again for Fleetwood’s second goal of the game, as Callum Camps’ overhead kick went straight through his hands and into the corner of the net.

The goalkeeper was also criticised by pundits for diving too late for Grady Diangana’s opener in Everton’s 5-2 win over West Brom in September, a goal which saw the Toffees fall behind early on.
