Marco Silva should consider playing Richarlison and Walcott together at Everton

Everton boss Marco Silva should consider deploying Richarlison and Theo Walcott as a strike partnership.

The Toffees beat Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, and used the Brazilian as a lone striker.

The summer signing from Watford duly repaid the manager’s faith by scoring in the first half.

It is a role he is quickly adapting to, after scoring twice on his debut for the Brazilian national team.

He appears to be flourishing, but he could be aided by another player who is in great form this year.

Richarlison and Walcott a fearsome duo?

Silva should consider playing Walcott right up next to Richarlison.

 

The forward has never made a secret of his desire to play through the middle, and the pair could be electric together.

The Englishman has been productive in front of goal this term, and has three goals to his name in all competitions.

Perhaps there is a case for him to play through the middle, and allow Silva to bring in someone like Ademola Lookman on the wing, with Bernard on the opposite flank.

On occasion, Walcott is prone to giving the ball away when playing out wide.

Although he has impressive statistics, maybe he would be better served coming inside and linking up with Richarlison.

The pair could become one of the Premier League’s most feared partnerships in the division.
