Everton fans react to Anthony Gordon display against Chelsea

Everton fans have waxed lyrical about Anthony Gordon following his impressive display against Chelsea on Thursday night.

The 20-year-old helped Rafa Benitez’s Toffees record a superb 1-1 draw away at the Premier League title challengers.

Everton fell behind in the 69th minute as Reece James set up Mason Mount to slot home at the near post.

However, Gordon provided the assist for the Goodison Park outfit to equalise and claim a hard-fought point.

The Everton academy graduate swung a brilliant cross in at the back post for Jarrad Branthwaite to divert into the net.

Gordon delivered several superb deliveries for his teammates throughout the game and also had a shot on target.

In addition, he contributed defensively, making three clearances, two tackles and an interception.

Here is what some Everton fans made of the youngster’s masterclass at Stamford Bridge:

Gordon is one of the brightest talents to come through the Everton academy in recent years.

He has made 34 appearances for the Toffees including 14 in the Premier League this season.

Although Gordon has been a squad rotation player this term, the display against Chelsea will no doubt give Benitez food for thought.
