Some Everton fans have been praising Yerry Mina for his performance against Manchester United last night.
The Toffees’ Carabao Cup dream is over, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side scoring two late goals through Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial to advance to the last four.
It was a lacklustre performance from Everton, especially in the second half – the prospect of reaching a semi-final seemingly having an effect on the hosts.
They came into the game off the back of three straight wins against Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal, but were unable to get one over on United in front of 2000 fans.
The supporters did their best to breathe life into the team, but a goal wasn’t forthcoming and the Red Devils punished Everton at the end.
It is a disappointing result for Everton, who would have been drawn against Manchester City had they gotten through.
On social media, fans were frustrated with the performance as a collective, but there were some people picking out £27 million centre-back Mina (BBC Sport) for praise.
The Colombian’s form has dipped in recent weeks after a good start, but he personally was pretty solid against the likes of Cavani and Martial.
Here’s what some were saying after the game:
The back four did well but Mina especially

No midfield and when they were on it, no bravery. Yerry Mina very good in that first half. Gylfi Sigurdsson when in possession good too.

Yerry Mina was the only player to play well tonight
No legs in the team without Allan

I think Yerry Mina is a brilliant player, obviously a reason he was at Barca and under a manager like Ancelotti who is brilliant on the defensive side of things he’ll flourish, one to watch definitely.
