‘Looks better in every performance’: Some Everton fans hail 5ft 8in ace’s display against Southampton

A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to praise Anthony Gordon’s display for Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees in the Premier League on Thursday.

Everton hosted Southampton at Goodison Park and struggled for much of the first half as Danny Ings put the Saints ahead in the 31st minute.

While some Everton players struggled on the night, Gordon was lively and creative as always, looking to take the game to Southampton and showing a great range of passing.

The 19-year-old, widely regarded as one of the Toffees academy’s best prospects, has been sensational for David Unsworth’s young Blues over the past few seasons.

Gordon was never picked for a senior game by former Everton boss Marco Silva, having to make do with the odd place on the bench, but has made his breakthrough under Ancelotti.

To date, the 5ft 8in attacking midfielder has made nine senior appearances for Everton and, with his contract running to 2023, it bodes well for the future of both the player and the club.

Here is what some Evertonians said on social media about Gordon’s display:
