Should Everton consider using Brazilian Richarlison on the right?

Everton attacker Richarlison has been a regular in the starting XI since he joined from Watford in the summer, but it appears that his manager Marco Silva is still trying to find his best position.

The 21-year-old is a highly-rated youngster with a bag of tricks and he’s already netted four goals in his first nine appearances for the Toffees in all competitions.

He started the campaign as a left-winger, where he can use his pace and directness to bamboozle full-backs.

 

But the introduction of teammate Bernard on the wing in recent weeks has seen Richarlison drift inside to a more central role for the last three league fixtures, where again to his credit he’s given it his all.

The tenacious attacker has scored one goal in that time, but he is not yet a natural fit for a lone centre-forward role and may be more effective cutting in from wide areas.

Silva is left with a dilemma of where to slot in all his attacking talents and he should perhaps consider using Richarlison in his third different position this campaign, which is out on the right flank.

Richarlison has been used on the right wing in the past and even played their a couple of times recently for senior national team Brazil during the international break.
