Richarlison’s consistent Everton goalscoring form shows he has learned his Watford lesson

Richarlison bagged a vital goal for Everton on Wednesday night, earning the Toffees a 1-1 home draw against Newcastle United.

The equaliser marked the Brazilian’s seventh Premier League goal this season, revealing Richarlison has learned his lessons from his inconsistent 2017/18 season at Watford.

With his goal against the Magpies, Richarlison bested his entire tally from last season by two goals, with half the season still left to play.

After enjoying an excellent start to life at Vicarage Road, Richarlison endured a lengthy goalscoring drought. The attacker scored five goals in his first 12 matches but recorded zero in the next 26 despite playing every single league match for the Hornets.

As a result, his big-money summer move to Goodison Park raised questions over whether Richarlison could develop into a regular top-flight goalscorer.

 

To the Everton faithful’s delight, Richarlison has taken a step forward in his career and blossomed into a consistent goalscorer.

Marco Silva recently placed his faith in the Brazilian by moving him to a centre-forward position, where he has scored four times in eight appearances.

Richarlison’s newfound goalscoring consistency is brilliant news as Everton prepare a challenge for a European place this season.
