A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to laud Anthony Gordon after the winger’s display in the draw with Manchester United on Saturday.
What’s the story?
The Toffees produced a superb performance to draw 1-1 at Old Trafford. And in truth, they could have easily walked away with all three points.
Tom Davies seemed to have a golden chance in the latter stages. But rather than shoot, he passed to Yerry Mina who scored from an offside position.
Everton played some fantastic football during the game. And it seems that plenty of fans look on the result as a missed opportunity rather than a brilliant point.
Several of their players were excellent. And one of those who has managed to impress many was Gordon.
The 20-year-old was handed his first start of the season in the Premier League. And he went on to look incredibly bright.
As shown by Whoscored, no player made a greater number of key passes than the academy graduate.
Meanwhile, he also made three successful tackles and two interceptions. In both areas, only one teammate was able to better his tally.
It does appear that some Everton supporters are yet to be fully convinced about whether Gordon is going to be good enough at Goodison.
But for many, his performance against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side was an indicator that he could have an incredibly bright future ahead.
Plenty felt that he did not look at all out of place on that stage. And they are hoping that this display is looked back upon as a big moment in his development.
