Richarlison is due an Everton goal against a top-six club

Everton attacker Richarlison has made quite the impact since his summer arrival from Watford and quickly established himself as a key player at Goodison Park.

The 21-year-old is a mainstay in Marco Silva’s XI, where he’s shown his qualities as both a centre-forward and a winger.

He’s already scored eight Premier League games this season, which has surpassed his five-goal tally from the last campaign with Watford.

But the Brazil international has interestingly not netted against a top-six English club yet this season after drawing a blank against Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Richarlison has the chance to put the record straight on Sunday, as Everton host Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham in the league.

The skilful attacker could get the label a flat-track bully if he doesn’t start delivering against the top clubs and ultimately that is where Everton want to be challenging moving forward.

Richarlison is already a popular figure on Merseyside and has immense potential, but the next step in his game has to be delivering against top-class opposition.

He could lay down a real marker with a match-winning display against Spurs, but is going to have to try get the better of one of the league’s best centre-backs in the shape of Toby Alderweireld.
