Gylfi Sigurdsson’s form is down to positional change at Everton


Gylfi Sigurdsson’s form is down to positional change at Everton

Everton ace Gylfi Sigurdsson looks almost unrecognisable from last season and the change is down to a simple tweak from manager Marco Silva.

The Iceland international was wasted on the left wing for large spells of last season and managed a return of just six goals across all competitions, which was extremely disappointing following his £45million move.

But Silva has made the brilliant tweak to deploy the playmaker in a more central role, something that has seen him score five times in just nine games so far this campaign already.


The 29-year-old is far more involved in play now for the Merseyside club and Everton are beginning to get the best out of their star man.

Sigurdsson is definitely capable of netting 15-goals in the current Everton system if he continues in the same form, as a lot of the team’s attacking play goes through him.

The Toffees started to pick up momentum before the international break with back-to-back victories and players are now beginning to adapt to Silva’s style.

Sigurdsson is certainly the biggest beneficiary of the new manager’s arrival and can begin to show Everton fans his true quality after a difficult first year at Goodison Park.
