Some Everton fans react to Yerry Mina’s performance against Crystal Palace

Everton have continued their 100 percent start to the new season after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s men were made to work for the win against a difficult Eagles side and were eventually rewarded for their persistence by a favourable penalty decision. Richarlison duly dispatched the penalty to secure the win, after Cheikhou Kouyate had previously levelled Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s opener. 

There were plenty of positives to take from the game, but one which Everton fans were seemingly divided on was the performance of Yerry Mina. 

The Colombian defender is fairly unpopular as a player with one section of fans, who feel he is erratic and not reliable defensively. Indeed, after this game, there was still plenty of criticism for the former Barcelona man mostly due to his irritating knack of giving away needless free-kicks.

That criticism, however, was fairly unfounded. 

Mina put in an imperious aerial display against Palace and nullified their threat on numerous occasions. 

He was brave in the challenge, even throwing his head at a grounded ball at one point, in the style of Phil Jones. 

Everton fans have some concerns over Mina but on this occasion the Colombian showcased what he was capable of. 

Plenty of Everton fans on Twitter appeared to appreciate that…
