Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes is an exciting Everton combination to watch out for

Everton recorded a 3-2 victory at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday and it means they have made a decent start to the Premier League season going into the international break.

The Toffees finally appear to have found some form in front of goal and there is a lot of optimism around Goodison Park.

It was the first competitive fixture that manager Marco Silva decided to pair Fabian Delph alongside Andre Gomes in the centre of the park.

The two central midfielders both excelled and Silva may have unearthed a new brilliant partnership that is worth keeping an eye out on.

With Idrissa Gueye departing in the summer to join Paris Saint-Germain, there has been a lot of concern about how they would fill his void.

But they may have stumbled across the answer with a new duo.

Delph, 29, is an experienced midfielder that completed a move to the Merseyside club in the summer for £9million (Sky Sports) and fans should be exited by what they have seen from him so far.


The Englishman was a real standout against Wolves with his crunching tackling, but also his confidence in possession and the way he looked to pass forward.

He comes from a Manchester City team that have been dominant in England in recent times and he definitely has a winning mentality that can help his Everton teammates.

Meanwhile, Gomes was on loan with the Toffees last season and completed a permanent £22million (Sky Sports) in the summer from Barcelona.

The 26-year-old has shown he can be a quality player for the club and he blended very well alongside Delph.

Both are not afraid to put a tackle in and offer a physical presence, while they can also provide balls forward to a dangerous attacking unit.

Gylfi Sigurdsson certainly has more freedom if he has a Gueye-Gomes combination sat behind him and it will be intriguing to see how they develop in the coming months.
