Bernard caught the eye in Everton’s win over Leicester City on Saturday – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter hailed him for his influence in the match.
The Toffees earned three points at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League, as they moved up the table before the international break.
Richarlison gave the visitors an early lead with a close-range volley, before Leicester levelled the score before half-time through Ricardo Pereira.
But Wes Morgan’s dismissal in the 63rd minute for a second yellow card turned the game in Everton’s favour and Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson went on to score the winner with a brilliant strike from distance.
A selection of Everton fans on social media decided to pick out Bernard for special praise after his performance.
The 26-year-old left-winger showed his quality with some stunning individual dribbles against Leicester and looks like he could be an important player under manager Marco Silva.
He’s had to be patient since arriving at Goodison Park on a free transfer this summer, but is beginning to show his true qualities now.
Here is some of the Everton reaction to Bernard’s display against Leicester:
Just want to say how much I love Bernard the little Brazilian magician

Great result today. Good performance in patches. First 20 mins we very good with Bernard looking a class act, especially on a free! Defence looked a bit better. Thought Zouma bossed it. #EFC

Bernard was fantastic today. Looking to be a bargain on a free. Good game from the boys, need to work on ruthlessness in the final third, but really promising of what a Silva team firing on all cylinders could look like #EFC
