Seamus Coleman gave the lead to Everton


Seamus Coleman – 8

Sometimes it is hard to believe that Seamus Coleman was bought for just £60k. His sheer longevity and his unquestionable loyalty serve as the epitome of greatness. It was iconic to see Seamus Coleman get into the six yard box and score the first goal, in a way, the captain thanking the fans for their unhindered support through thick and thin. In the second half, despite losing steam, Coleman was committed to seeing off the game and taking the much needed win

Michael Keane – 7.5

Michael Keane doubled Everton’s advantage and was largely solid in whatever he did in the first half. Such a performance can act as a huge confidence booster especially when things are going south for Keane.

Mason Holgate – 7.5

Mason Holgate made a last gasp risky tackle in the penalty area that could have ended in a horrible red card had he not timed it well but the tackle was impeccably timed. Holgate was there to make interceptions and keep it tidy at the back.

Jonjoe Kenny – 7.5

Jonjoe Kenny essentially had one job in defence – to babysit Raphinha. The Brazilian can be a force of nature and to contain him is an extremely difficult job. Kenny not only frustrated Raphinha, but he was confident in the attack as well. For a few moments, it just didn’t seem like Kenny isn’t a left back. Kenny did play a part in Everton’s first goal.

Kenny made seven recoveries and three interceptions, capping off a brilliant night for the academy product.
