Everton's run of seven straight wins came to an abrupt end with a 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, and the defeat at Goodison Park could prove costly in the race for fourth place.

Sylvain Distin took to Twitter to chat to fans after the match, and got told to "f---ing leg it" by one angry supporter, because he wasn't "good enough."

Distin's response was sensational:

@MickHanEfc maybe not mate but you can't afford better at the minutes so stop moaning kid
