Everton recorded a 1-0 victory away to West Brom on Thursday evening – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were thrilled with the performance of substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson.
The Toffees temporarily moved into the top four of the Premier League by earning three points at the Hawthorns.
Richarlison has now scored in four consecutive matches, as his second-half header proved to be the match-winner for the Merseyside club.
Everton sit fourth for the meantime in the league standings and they travel to Stamford Bridge on Monday for their next game against Chelsea.
A selection of Everton supporters on social media gave huge credit to Sigurdsson for his contribution tonight.
The 31-year-old came off the bench to assist Richarlison’s winning goal with his accurate cross into the box, as he added a bit more precision and quality in the final third.
He had the desired impact from the bench midway through the second half for Carlo Ancelotti’s team and has hit great form lately.
The Icelandic attacking midfielder now has one goal and two assists in his last three appearances.
He’s someone that has often divided supporters at Goodison Park and he’s received some stick over the years, but plenty have come out to applaud his midweek contribution.
Here are some Everton fans discussing Sigurdsson:
I take back everything I’ve said about Sigurdsson, missed him first half!

Sigurdsson dragging us into the CL fight

Never thought I’d say it but Sigurdsson needs to play when James doesn’t, not at CM but no. 10 even though he can still go missing at times he’s produced from there this season

Sigurdsson is underrated. I understand he’s slow but that’s not his game. The price tag he came for was ridiculous but not his fault. He’s good backup

I said it last week. It's about time Sigurdsson get more respect from our fans. Had a great season and came up trumps once again. Get in Gylfi..!!!!
