Everton star Fabian Delph has been branded an "anti-vaxxer" by furious fans after sending out an anti-vaccine post on his Instagram account.

Premier League players and staff have reportedly been told they must be double-vaccinated ahead of the new season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Government plans could also see fans needing to be fully vaccinated by October to attend live Premier League matches next season.

Delph has now landed himself in hot water with fans for sharing a message from the website The Healing Chamber on his Instagram Stories on Wednesday.

"It's now a 'conspiracy theory' to believe that the immune system is capable of doing the job it was designed to do," reads the message.

Everton have been in Orlando as they participate in the Florida Cup, but Delph has been unable to travel with the squad after coming into contact with someone who has since tested positive for coronavirus.

The Premier League club said in an official statement last week: "Fabian Delph will not travel with the squad to the Florida Cup in Orlando as a precautionary measure after coming into contact with someone who has since tested positive for COVID-19.

"Delph, who began his preparations for the coming season on 5 July and has played in both of the club's practice matches -- including a 1-0 victory against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday -- will resume his pre-season training as soon as his period of self-isolation is over."

Everton defeated Colombian side Millonarios on penalties in their Florida Cup clash at the Camping World Stadium on Sunday.

Rafa Benitez's men will continue their pre-season campaign against Club Universidad Nacional on Wednesday before facing Manchester United on 7th August.
