Anthony Gordon praises Everton teammate, says he’s ‘seen him improve’

Everton ace Anthony Gordon has spoken highly of Toffees teammate Demarai Gray, in conversation with the Goodison media team.

Gray only joined Everton in July, reportedly costing the club a mere £1.7million, but he’s hit the ground running at Goodison Park.

The 25-year-old has started all five games for Rafa Benitez’s side in the Premier League so far, and has scored three goals.

Gray also made cameo appearances off the bench in the Carabao Cup against Huddersfield and QPR.

Everton fans have taken to the former Bayer Leverkusen ace as he torments opposition defences.

Benitez currently has four players vying for game time on the flanks – Gordon, Gray, Andros Townsend and Alex Iwobi.

Gordon, who came through the ranks at Goodison, commented on Gray before praising the healthy competition on the wings.

“Dimi is similar to me,” he said. “He has the same characteristics and I have seen him improve his end product.

“All four wingers have been at it in training since pre-season. It is healthy competition and I am ready.”

Everton will be hoping to put their last two poor results behind them on Saturday, when they host Norwich at Goodison.

Prior to their Carabao Cup penalty shootout loss at QPR, the Toffees fell to a 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Everton sit sixth in the table ahead of matchday six.
