Everton manager Marco Silva has shown incredible faith in summer signing Bernard so far this season, as he’s cemented his position in the starting XI on the left flank.
The 26-year-old arrived at Goodison Park on a free transfer and is a diminutive 5ft 4in wide man that is quickly becoming a favourite of supporters.
He is a left-winger with incredible pace and dribbling, while’s he’s shown he loves to run at defenders and has a directness to goal.
But the one dark cloud over him is that the Brazilian is yet to score for the Toffees in his eight appearances across all competitions and that may concern him given the amount of competition within the squad for attacking positions.
Bernard has chipped in with two assists so far for the Merseyside club, but is still waiting to open his account in front of goal.
He is still impacting games in a positive way for Everton and it seems like a matter of time before he does score, considering the dangerous positions he takes up in the final third.
Silva is proving he has great faith in the player to deliver and it will be no surprise if he hits a purple patch of form.
He previously showed his goalscoring qualities at Ukrainian club Shakthar Donetsk and is adapting well to life in the Premier League.
