Everton fans surprised by excellent Theo Walcott performance

Theo Walcott completed 86 minutes in the win over West Ham on Saturday afternoon – and some Everton fans on Twitter were blown away by his performance.

The 30-year-old attacker started his first game in the Premier League this season at the weekend and sent out a message that he can still be a valuable option at Goodison Park.

Marco Silva’s team had lost four consecutive league games prior to the international break, but responded with a 2-0 home victory against West Ham.

The Merseyside giants fully deserved three league points after dominating for large spells and will hope they can now put a run of positive results together.

Bernard scored the opener in the first-half after a brilliant bit of dribbling inside the penalty box to create space and fire in a low shot.

A selection of Everton fans on social media picked out Walcott for his display and there was a sense of him proving many wrong.

The right-winger saw a thunderous effort strike the crossbar in the second-half and he looked back to his brilliant best, which included an assist for Bernard’s opener with a through ball past the defence.

His work-rate was phenomenal to cover so much ground both offensively and defensively, while West Ham full-back Arthur Masukau had a nightmare.

Here are some Everton fans on Walcott:
