The majority of Everton supporters weren’t pleased when the Spaniard was appointed their manager last summer.
They had a decent start to the 2021/22 campaign but a series of poor results have seen them slip to the brink of the relegation zone.
Everton were hoping to get back to winning ways against lowly Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.
Norwich had not won in the Premier League since November going into the game.
But Dean Smith’s side raced into a shock two-goal lead inside 20 minutes at Carrow Road.
The Everton supporters inside the stadium were, understandably, not happy at all.
And one away fan’s emotions got the better of them as they invaded the pitch to try and confront Benitez.
He was apprehended by stewards around the half-way line and was escorted off the pitch.
Richarlison was substituted onto the pitch in the second half and he got Everton back in the game with an outrageous goal in the 60th minute.
The Brazilian produced a stunning overhead kick from beyond the penalty spot which fizzed into the net.
What a finish that is.
It wasn’t enough for Everton, though, as they could not find an equaliser and thus succumbed to another defeat.

Everton are now just six points clear of the relegation zone. That’s not acceptable for a side that had aspirations to qualify for Europe at the start of the season.
Time will tell whether Everton’s board give the majority of fans what they want and make a change at the manager position.
